NTT DATA, a company in the global top 10 of IT service providers, has been recognized by Microsoft "partner of the year" in two categories of the Microsoft Inspire 2022: Partner of the Year Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement Category and Partner of the Year Application Modernization Category, the latter for the second consecutive year.
The Microsoft Inspire is an annual event in which the company recognizes the work of the partners it works with, focusing on the relevance of its ecosystem of business partners, and recognizing the impact it has on companies and the technology industry. Currently, Microsoft has more than 400,000 partners -11,400 of them in Spain-, which employ more than 22 million people worldwide.
The recognitions obtained this year by NTT DATA consolidate the company as a reference partner in these two areas, focusing on its ability to provide consulting services and implementation of Microsoft solutions and the level of excellence achieved in our competence centers of the Microsoft Customer Engagement practice, as well as the excellent year of Digital Microsoft Services.
Dominique Fabien Alexandre Gire, Top executive of Microsoft Customer Engagement Solutions at NTT DATA says that "receiving this award for the first time shows that our joint work with Microsoft has been at a very high level and that we are able to provide the best solutions in consulting services and implementation of Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement solutions added to the great work of all our professionals who are part of the Digital Microsoft Services. For this, we thank both the organization, as well as all those who make up our teams dedicated to our related services".
On the other hand, regarding the modernization of applications in Spain, this recognition derives from the results obtained thanks to the joint service with Microsoft for application transformation during the year: Modernization studio, by using methodology, tools, and accelerators created jointly to modernize the applications of our customers by moving them to Azure in an efficient and secure way.
Jean Pascal Busquet, Head of Azure Application Modernization studio at NTT DATA comments that the award “is once again a recognition of the excellence we are achieving by modernizing our customers' applications in the journey of transforming their business to the Cloud and is the result of the joint work of both organizations. To be recognized as ‘partner of the year’ for the second consecutive year is an honor and consolidates us as the reference partner in application modernization in Spain, with a unique and recognized approach in the local market.”
NTT DATA has a close relationship with Microsoft, a trusted global and local partner with which synergies are sought to improve solutions aimed at the digital transformation of the business environment. Thus, both companies closed a global strategic collaboration to co-create new digital solutions and promote the digital transformation of companies, in addition to working together to provide solutions in the confidential hybrid cloud and migration services and optimization of IT resources, which is materialized in the creation of the Microsoft Innovation Hub, located in the NTT DATA Living LAB in Barcelona. This space receives more than 1,000 visits annually and was conceived as a laboratory of ideas to promote innovation through co-creation with employees, customers, technology partners, and the entrepreneurial and academic ecosystems.
