"My team and I had been working with Azure for the past year. Opsgility's training was very helpful in moving our team from novice to experienced. With the expertise of the Opsgility team we were able to identify several risks within our Azure deployments design and quickly fix them before we incurred any negative impact. We make many decisions in our day to day operations. Choosing Opsgility is definitely one of the better ones. I would highly recommend them."

"Opsgility provided an outstanding training experience to an audience of highly seasoned senior staff and everyone felt that it was the best instructional experience that they have had in years. Their knowledge of the Microsoft Azure landscape as well as supporting technologies was detailed and in depth while still being engaging for staff from different technical disciplines. Excellent job!
