NTT DATA, one of the top 10 IT service providers in the world, was recognised by Microsoft as its partner of the year in two categories at Microsoft Inspire 2022: Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement and Modernisation of Applications, the latter for the second year running.
Microsoft Inspire is an annual event at which the company recognises the work of its partners, spotlighting the importance of its ecosystem of business partners and acknowledging the impact they have on companies and the technology industry. Microsoft currently has over 400,000 partners – 11,400 of them in Spain – which employ more than 22 million people throughout the world.
The awards received by NTT DATA this year consolidate the company’s position as a partner of reference in those two areas, with a focus on its ability to provide consultancy services and the implementation of Microsoft solutions and the level of excellence achieved in our Microsoft Customer Engagement skills centres, as well as the excellent year of Digital Microsoft Services.
Dominique Fabien Alexandre Gire, Top Executive of Microsoft Customer Engagement Solutions at NTT DATA, said the following: “receiving this award for the first time demonstrates that our joint work with Microsoft has been at a very high level, and that we are able to provide the best solutions in consultancy services and the implementation of the Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement solutions, together with the tremendous work by all our professionals who form part of the Digital Microsoft Services. For that reason, we would like to thank both the organisation and all those who make up our teams dedicated to our related services”.
With regard to the modernisation of applications in Spain, that recognition derives from the results obtained thanks to the joint service with Microsoft during the year for the transformation of applications: Modernization Studio. Using a methodology, tools and accelerators created jointly in order to modernise the suites of applications of our clients by moving them to Azure in an efficient, secure manner.
Jean Pascal Busquet, Head of Azure Application Modernization Studio at NTT DATA commented that the award “is once again a recognition of the excellence we are achieving, modernising our clients’ applications on the journey of transformation of their business to the Cloud, and it is the result of the joint work of both organisations. It is an enormous honour to be recognised as partner of the year’ for the second year running and it consolidates our position as the partner of reference in the modernisation of applications in Spain, with a unique approach which is widely recognised in the local market”.
NTT DATA has close relations with Microsoft, a trusted partner at both global and local level with which it seeks synergies to improve the solutions aimed at the digital transformation of the business environment. Thus, the two companies entered into a global strategic collaboration agreement to co-create new digital solutions and to promote the digital transformation of companies, as well as working together to provide solutions in the confidential hybrid cloud and services for the migration and optimisation of IT resources, which is materialised in the creation of the Microsoft Innovation Hub, located at the NTT DATA Living LAB in Barcelona. That space receives over 1,000 visits a year, and it was conceived as an ideas laboratory to promote innovation through co-creation with employees, clients, technological partners and the entrepreneurial and academic ecosystems.
