Microsoft has honoured a host of leading ASEAN partners on the global stage, recognising a year of excellence and innovation across the region.
Revealed overnight, the annual running of the Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards sees recognition span the entire ecosystem, acknowledging in-country expertise alongside specialist skill-sets.
Specifically, Channel Asia can reveal that NCS has been awarded Singapore Partner of the Year, in recognition of “substantial customer and revenue growth” by driving solid business impact through Microsoft cloud technologies.
Meanwhile, Enfrasys Consulting has taken home the Malaysia Partner of the Year honours, following 12 months of advanced IP solution building, coupled with increased Microsoft Azure revenue consumption.
In Indonesia, country recognition goes to Kreatif Dinamika Intgrasi, with Tech One Global; CMC System Integration and Softline awarded across Philippines, Vietnam and Cambodia respectively.
Rounding off the ASEAN region, other winners included Access Spectrum in Myanmar, Top Value Service Sole in Laos and Concepts Technologies in Brunei.
“These annual awards recognise Microsoft partners who demonstrate excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology,” said Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president of One Commercial Partner, Microsoft. “I was amazed by all of the outstanding submissions we received.
“The incredible achievements of our winners and finalists are another reminder of the strength of our partner ecosystem.”
According to Schuster, all winners and finalists represent the “best and most forward-thinking innovators” coming out of the Microsoft partner ecosystem, spanning all aspects of the channel.
“These companies are bringing cutting-edge solutions to complex business challenges and providing digital transformation opportunities for their customers,” Schuster added.
Alongside country recognition, the awards recognise achievement by solution area and industry, alongside social impact, learning and compete.
In 2018, the vendor received more than 2,600 nominations from 115 countries, spanning 39 different categories, alongside more than 100 country partner award nominations.
“With so many strong nominations, it’s an extremely difficult task to select the winners and finalists,” Schuster added. “I want to thank all partners who took the time and effort to submit a nomination, and I hope you all will participate in next year’s awards program as well.
“Congratulations to all of the 2018 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award winners and finalists. I’m excited to recognise you and celebrate your success at Microsoft Inspire next month.”
