Summit 7 Achieves Charter Partner Status in Two Microsoft Programs for Security and Compliance

Summit 7 Systems announced that it has been named a Charter Member in, both, the Microsoft Content Services Partner Program and Microsoft 365 Business Applications Partner Program.

Content Services Partner Program

The select group of 23 businesses were chosen out of 60,000+ Microsoft Partners to participate in the Microsoft Content Services Partner Program. Summit 7 Systems is the only partner focused on Aerospace and Defense companies and their unique content management requirements of DFARS 7012, NIST 800-171, ITAR, and newly drafted CMMC. Charter Members are focused on transitioning large volumes of accounts from legacy information systems in G-Suite, AWS, OpenText, IBM, Box, or other solutions to the Microsoft Content Services platform, driven by SharePoint and OneDrive. 

Summit 7 was of interest to Microsoft and the program due to dozens of projects implementing architecture for content assets of varying levels of sensitivity (CUI, CDI, ITAR, company proprietary). These solutions built upon the Office 365 GCC High platform provide operational value, while ensuring governance and control. Below is a list of Charter Members.

Content Services Charter Partner Compliance

“Microsoft Content Services has evolved from a SharePoint-centric solution set to now include OneDrive, Teams, Groups, and more” says Scott Edwards, President and Managing Partner at Summit 7 Systems. “Many of the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) are adopting content and collaboration cloud solutions for the first time but do not want to forsake security and compliance. This program allows us to highlight our clients' distinct digital transformation stories.”

Business Applications Partner Program

Summit 7 is the only Security and Compliance services and solution company of 37 in the Microsoft 365 Business Applications Partner Program. Many of Summit 7's clients today have a powerful platform in Office 365  but do not have the resources, time, or expertise to use the automation and visualization tools within the Power Stack (PowerApps, Flow, PowerBI). Summit 7 provides solutions to optimize critical business processes, improve workflow, and simplify tasks to enable security and compliance.
