Tony Safoian, President and CEO of SADA Systems, spearheaded SADA's investment in cloud computing, when the technology was only just beginning to emerge in the market in 2006. Today, SADA Systems is a leading cloud deployment partner working with both Google and Microsoft, and has worked on some of the largest cloud implementation projects in the country across commercial enterprise, government and education, including the Los Angeles Unified School District, Chicago Public Schools, Yahoo!, BCBGMaxazria, the City of Omaha and others.
SADA has proven expertise in enterprise consulting, cloud platform migration, custom application development and change management services. SADA has received multiple accreditations and awards across its services for Google Enterprise and Microsoft cloud solutions, as well as its Infrastructure Management Services. Since January 2013, these awards have included the distinction of being named the 2013 North America Partner of the Year for Google Maps as well as Google Apps for Government for the company's Google Enterprise practice. SADA was also designated as one of only 35 Microsoft National Systems Integrators, a designation given to an exclusive group of U.S. partners with Microsoft technology expertise, geographic scale, and a commitment to helping customers deploy Microsoft technologies. While SADA is consistently developing and refining its cloud services delivery model and development practice, SADA Systems showed commitment to its Infrastructure Management Services (IMS) practice for clients still invested in on-premise infrastructure by recently revamping its services. Shortly afterwards, SADA premiered on the MSPmentor 501 Global Edition and North America edition, identifying the top managed services providers globally and in North America.
