Partnering with Quisitive to tap the Microsoft Azure cloud
Historically, companies that produce SOC reports use relatively low-tech business applications and processes, such as spreadsheets, file collaboration sites and ticketing systems. Automation has been rare and most companies still compile SOC reports in something of a legacy fashion.
SOC.x brings this type of reporting into the era of web-based cloud computing by using Microsoft’s powerful Azure platform. Tapping into Azure allowed Grant Thornton to move SOC reporting onto one single platform that its professionals can ubiquitously access, while enjoying greater automation, standardization and collaboration.
To develop SOC.x in Microsoft Azure, Grant Thornton turned to Quisitive Technology Solutions Inc. (TSXV:QUIS), a premier Microsoft solutions provider with a global track record of innovation and technical expertise.
Mike Reinhart, CEO of Quisitive added: “Grant Thornton wanted a cutting-edge platform that is able to augment its current SOC reporting capabilities so they operate within the cloud, which is where Quisitive comes in. As an experienced and premier Microsoft National Solution Provider, our ability to provide customized assistance to customers migrating to Azure has been stellar. We look forward to working closely with the Grant Thornton team during this transition, as we provide a number of benefits to their current operations through cloud integration.”
