SkyKick Helps Partners Deploy Office 365

Office 365 is a core component of Microsoft's efforts to be a cloud computing player -- and that makes it a big deal for Microsoft's legions of channel partners. Seattle-based startup SkyKick has developed a hosted migration project automation platform, the SkyKick Application Suite, which solution providers use to help customers implement Office 365 cloud applications.

SkyKick just launched its product earlier this month. The suite's tools -- Web Planner, Migration Sync and Outlook Assistant -- provide everything needed to evaluate a customer's computing environment and migrate them from older email systems to Office 365.

Founded by co-CEOs Evan Richman and Todd Schwartz in 2011, the company has secured about $3.7 million in funding.
