Cireson Joins Microsoft NSP Ranks

In an era in which Microsoft is preaching intellectual property development to its partner choir, the technology giant has named Cireson to the Microsoft National Solution Provider (NSP) program.

San Diego-based Cireson bills itself as a company that enhances Microsoft Azure and Microsoft System Center with its own service and asset management offerings, including the recently unveiled Cireson Platform.

As for the NSP designation, it applies to a group of about 30 partners in the United States that get an extra layer of partner management from Microsoft. The program evolved from the older National Systems Integrator (NSI) designation, which typically covered systems integrators who spanned multiple U.S. regions and had either broad expertise or high-end specialty expertise.

Other NSPs include such well-known Microsoft partners as Perficient Inc., Tallan Inc., SADA Systems, Project Leadership Associates and Nimbo.
