Jon Thomsen, CEO of Atmosera, commented on the deal:

“I am very excited to welcome the Wintellect team to Atmosera. With the divestiture of our colocation business earlier this year, this acquisition allows Atmosera to become more deeply embedded in the Microsoft Azure Ecosystem with world-class, end-to-end Azure service offerings.”

Scott Harvey, Atmosera’s CTO, added:

“Wintellect was Microsoft’s #1 outside training partner worldwide for 15 years. Team members have written dozens of software books, authored hundreds of technology articles, and keynoted conference events around the globe. The combined services and thought leadership we bring to clients is second to none – we are now defining the category for application and Azure infrastructure expertise and service delivery.”

Todd Fine, President of Wintellect and Microsoft regional director, said:

“By joining forces with Atmosera, we are able to provide a broader, deeper, and more robust service offering together than we were able to individually. With two companies both 100% focused on Microsoft Azure, we will provide transformative, full-spectrum Azure solutions delivered via one company.”
