Nagarro Austria is Microsoft Country Partner of the Year 2018

Vienna, June 30, 2018: IT, Cloud and software specialist – Nagarro – has been recently announced "Microsoft Country Partner of the Year 2018" for Austria. Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognizes and celebrates all the partners who've successfully implemented customer projects in the previous year with proven business benefits and actionable innovation. These awards are granted in several categories and this year's winners were selected from around 2,600 nominations from 115 countries in 39 different global award categories.

Team Cloud Entrepreneur and Nagarro Managing Director, Damianos Soumelidis, has handled Cloud in all its facets for many years. Today, as Microsoft Azure partner, Nagarro has the highest turnover in Austria. Reflecting on the challenges of recent years, Damianos Soumelidis says, "When we started offering cloud services in 2010, many companies were extremely skeptical. It is because of the innovative CIOs, probably also because of the conviction with which we believe in transformation, that we can now receive this award."

Over the past eight years of cloud missionization, Nagarro has been deeply involved not only with the innovative technologies, but with the capabilities that today support digital transformation as well. Nagarro Austria has been an official partner of the Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP) program since early 2016 and ANECON, a recent integration in Nagarro also brought along a Microsoft Gold Partner certification. The international Cloud Competence Center for the Nagarro Group and its 25 offices across the globe is also directed from Vienna. Nagarro Austria is thus well-equipped for digitization projects.

For Dorothee Ritz, Managing Director of Microsoft Austria, this is the key to success for the coming years. "Nagarro has attracted the attention of the Microsoft Partner Community with remarkable innovation and in-depth know-how. This is exactly the strength that is urgently needed in Austria for transformation projects" said Ritz.

The "Microsoft Partner of the Year 2018" is a testimony to not just successful projects and best practices, but also commitment, competence, and reliability. As Microsoft Partner Lead, Michael Rehberger emphasizes, "The cooperation of recent years was exemplary of how new scenarios can be turned into solutions with visible business benefits through joint efforts. It not only requires the trust of customers but also the knowledge of how to get the most out of the product and its potential.”

A few joint milestones in project implementation includes the 100% cloud migration from conwert, the transformation from SAP HANA to Microsoft Azure at Hörbiger and working on projects for clients such as Andritz, KTM, Trodat, and Schrack.
