03/02/2021 – Natilik announced that it has become the first UK Cisco Partner to achieve Cisco DevNet Specialisation. Cisco announced the accreditation officially on the 22nd January 2021 after the team passed their final assessment stage as part of the DevNet Specialisation Programme that was launched back in the summer of 2020.  


Awarded to channel partners who complete vigorous programme of individual exams, development challenges and interviews to prove their DevOp’s skills and excellence, The DevNet Specialisation programme is based on validation of a partner’s technical skills, development practice, and past customer engagements. Recognition of such ensures customers can feel rest assured they are partnered with authorities in programmability.  


In February 2020, Cisco’s certification programme underwent changes to reflect the new skills needed to operate modern networks. With the emergence of new job roles like Network Automation Developer and DevSecOps Engineer, Cisco’s certification programme is designed to allow partners like Natilik to succeed and scale. 


Mike Dornan, COO of Natilik commented “I am overjoyed at Natilik becoming the first partner in the UK and only the third in EMEAR to achieve the converted Cisco DevNet Specialisation. I am very proud of our talented team gaining Cisco’s recognition of our DevOps skills and expertise, we are excited to see where the next 12 months take us and the impact we can deliver to our clients”  


Cisco DevNet Specialisation reflects the top-performing programmibility partners with specific skills and value add across all geographical regions. All specialisation recipients are reviewed and assessed by a group of Cisco Global DevNet experts and DevOp’s leads.
