Coretek Services and Rebuilding Together Community Service Project 2016Keeping with the annual charitable tradition of our Community Service project for 2016, Coretek jumped in with our hearts and hands to renovate and rejuvenate the home of some local neighbors who do not have the financial resources or manpower to do it themselves.  Partnering with Rebuilding Together again for the second year in a row, Coretek visited the home of a veteran and his wife whose established home was in need of some major landscaping and yard work, along with some indoor repairs and organization.

The day’s weather loomed overcast and rainy, but that did not dissuade nearly 30 Coretek employees and their families from waking up early on a Saturday morning and driving from various parts of metro Detroit to put in their all.  It was a messy and muddy day — full of tree branches, carpentry, and unexpected project delays.  But these are the challenges that bring out the best in all of us!  And in the end, it was nothing but sunshine beaming from the happy home.

The homeowners were grateful and pleased with the work the Coretek team did, and we all were thankful to have the opportunity to give back to this deserving couple.

And we also want to thank the folks at Rebuilding Together for everything they bring to our Community Service projects!  To find out more about who they are, click here to learn more about Rebuilding Together and see if you or your organization can get involved.

The Advantages of Working with a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP)

2017-07-27T00:00:58+00:00 October 2nd, 2016|Azure, blog, Cloud, Microsoft, Micrsoft Cloud Solution Provider|

There are many cloud services platforms — and numerous cloud service providers — to assist your organization with the strategy, deployment, and management of your cloud initiative.  In this ever-growing landscape of cloud providers, how do you choose the partner that is best for your business?

We have uncovered the key attributes which will determine your cloud projects’ success when selecting a cloud solution provider: experience, value, and fit.  Evaluating these three credentials of your cloud provider candidates will drive your cloud strategy, deployment, and management success


First, you want a provider that has several cloud veterans that are constantly in touch with the state of the industry.  Coretek Services employs folks that are cloud product veterans in Azure and many of the other cloud technologies.  In fact, members of our team have been instrumental in building the Azure cloud solution when they were employed at Microsoft.

Next, you want to know that your provider isn’t “cloud only” but also has experience in data center infrastructure, virtualization, mobility, security, and your specific business domain such as healthcare, manufacturing, and others.  Few cloud service providers can offer you this additional depth of experience.


You want your provider to provide value beyond just the cloud product being delivered.  This means that you want your new cloud partner to have significant relationships and partnerships with other technology vendors as well as the necessary expertise in those platforms.

As a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), we have a significant value partnership in Azure.  We have relationships with the product development teams and input into the feature development process.  It allows us to represent cloud computing trends that our customers are experiencing to the cloud product development team.

cloud-service-providerWhile you get a great product in Azure because Microsoft is focused on delivering the very best, we are free to build value-added features for our customers.  For example, we can tailor automation to your business to make your cloud usage more efficient, such as decreasing services when your business is closed or by increasing services when demand bursts to higher levels.  This allows you to control your costs and forecast your needs well in advance.

Simply put — you get the best of both worlds.  It allows your organization to receive the best that Azure can provide along

with the detailed focus of your IT business needs, which Coretek Services provides.

Priority and Fitcsp

As a Microsoft CSP, we quickly identify the technical problems and bring the right solutions and people rapidly to your assistance.  Coretek Services makes your organizations needs a top priority.  We will fit into your business in the way that is most appropriate to you providing professional services, managed services, or the mix that you desire.

We believe in one thing.  Customer Success!  No Exceptions!
