When you need an expert, it’s reassuring to know that their expertise has been vetted and put to the test. That’s why Google Cloud developed their Partner Specializations program. SADA is proud to be a Google Cloud Partner that is recognized in ten Specialization areas. 

Says Miles Ward, SADA CTO, “Our teams have done path-breaking, applied, impactful work with the most advanced capabilities of Google Cloud’s suite and have earned not one, or two, but TEN of their prestigious specializations. This expertise is on tap, ready to accelerate your most critical initiatives, increase efficiency, capture market opportunities, and reduce risk. There’s no faster way to come up to speed than to work with folks who are already sprinting toward incredible cloud outcomes every day.”

Achieving a Specialization in a solution area involves establishing a Google Cloud services practice, consistently facilitating customer success, and demonstrating sophisticated technical capabilities. Google and a third-party assessor evaluate their partners according to strict criteria.
