The Microsoft Country Partner of the Year Awards honour partners at the country level that have demonstrated business excellence in delivering Microsoft solutions to multiple customers over the past year.

This award recognises Datacom as succeeding in effective engagement with its local Microsoft office while showcasing innovation and business impact, driving customer satisfaction, and winning new customers.

“We’re pleased to once again be named Microsoft’s Country Partner of the Year for New Zealand, says Greg Davidson, CEO of Datacom New Zealand. "This win can be attributed to our shared ambition to bring the combined value of each of our organisations to market for the benefit of our customers,”

“We are redefining the Australasian IT marketplace with Microsoft in ground-breaking areas such as the Internet of Things, evolving capability across hybrid cloud, cognitive computing and global business connectivity," says Davidson, in a statement.

“Our unique-to-Datacom products built on Microsoft platforms are a further testament to our long-standing relationship with Microsoft and the capability of our exceptional people.”

Awards were presented in several categories, with winners chosen from a set of more than 2,500 entrants from 119 countries worldwide. Datacom was recognised for providing outstanding solutions and services, as well as representing excellent subsidiary engagement in New Zealand.
