Microsoft Gold Partner status -
what it means to ClearSky

When we started ClearSky Logic, the aim was to provide a first-class software development and delivery agency - somewhere that could be trusted by organisations of all sizes to help them deliver their goals through digital transformation. We know it can seem like a minefield when searching for the right partner and any help you can get is welcome. This help includes, recommendations, testimonials and achievement of professional standards of certification.

Much of our standard back-end tech stack at ClearSky is based on Microsoft technologies and we wanted to demonstrate that we are fully-recognised professionals in the areas we specialise in. Microsoft Gold Partner status is something we set out to achieve this calendar year but actually achieved ahead of schedule in Q2 2021. 
We work with many clients who are very aware that they need to use technology to get their business where they need it to be but they have often been scarred by engaging with partners who have under-delivered or failed entirely to deliver working solutions. 

Our Microsoft Gold Partner status helps reassure clients that their business is in good hands.
At ClearSky we are different. We are strongly technical but we are also laser focussed on creating positive outcomes for our clients.

At ClearSky we have always been delivery - and implementation -focussed. We deliver outcomes for clients, not just software. Gaining the MS Gold Partner accreditation was important for us because it sets us apart from many organisations 

We place a lot of importance on training our staff to ensure they are operating at the highest standards. Staff members have professional development plans, many of which contain the aim to reach a certain standard measures and recognised by Microsoft. 

We have demonstrated a range of technical skills across the team to be recognised as a Gold Partner and it's something that we proudly shout from the rooftops. It also shows a commitment to staying up to date with current technical standards in software development, cloud platforms and data.

ISO27001 Certification -
what it means to ClearSky

When we started ClearSky Logic, the aim was to provide a first-class software development and delivery agency - somewhere that could be trusted by organisations of all sizes to help them deliver their goals through digital transformation. 

From the outset of the company we have aimed to achieve ISO27001 certification within the first 3 years. We proudly achieved this certification in Q2 2021.

Digital transformation involves a high degree of trust and care over valuable assets, specifically data. There’s no such thing as 100% secure (contrary to what some vendors may tell you), but there are a great deal of effective  practices that can be followed to ensure you’re working towards the very best practices in information security.
When an organisation is looking for a trusted technical partner they need to know their internal processes are robust, dependable and objectively audited. The intense scrutiny of the ISO audit was something we welcomed as it pushed us to refine our processes and procedures to follow genuine best practices in the storage, retrieval and transmission of customer data,  the scrutiny of employees and the focus on security in our software development life-cycle.
Our change control processes have been reviewed and refined so that an audit trail is generated and risks are mitigated whilst still allowing us to be agile and responsive to our clients’ needs. 

With our ISO27001 certification, clients have the assurance that ClearSky is a fully-mature technical partner that they can trust with their every software development need. 

ISO27001 is a journey not a destination so we’re always aiming to improve our processes and procedures. Much like our engineering processes, we continually aim to review and refine sio that we never stand still or rest on our laurels. 

With this certification, ClearSky demonstrates that it is a first-class provider of digital transformation solutions.
