Tech Data Europe has won the 2015 Microsoft Distribution Partner of the Year Award for the second successive year.
The firm, as well as the winners from the other 42 awards categories across areas such as cloud, data, devices, enterprise mobility and hosted services, will be recognised at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Orlando, Florida from July 12-16.
Tech Data Europe said it won the award among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions on Microsoft technology.
It beat rivals ALSO Deutschland, Computer Gross and SYNNEX Corporation to the win. Overall, winners were chosen from a set of more than 2,300 entries from 108 different countries.
Tech Data Europe senior vice president of borderline, CE, services and procurement Michael Urban (pictured) said: This award is tribute to the strong alignment between the Microsoft and Tech Data teams across Europe and the quality of our joint execution.
“Over the past year, Microsoft accelerated its innovative production line to deliver new best-in-breed mobile and cloud products – ranging from Surface to Lumia to Azure. In turn, we responded by increasing our investments across all segments. We especially worked hard to lead the market transformation to cloud and digital distribution.”
