Microsoft names COMPAREX Global Cloud Partner of the Year 2014

Leipzig, 25.03.2015 – COMPAREX received the accolade as Global Cloud Partner of the Year, which the vendor awards to global Licensing Solution Providers (LSP). The awards ceremony was held in March at the Microsoft EMEA Channel Partner Conference 2015 in Dublin.

The Microsoft EMEA Operations Global Cloud Partner of the Year 2014 Award is in recognition of the growth in revenue for the Microsoft Cloud products Office 365 and Azure in the months July to December 2014. Here, COMPAREX recorded the strongest rise of all Licensing Solution Providers. The COMPAREX Cloud revenues soared by over 100 percent during the period in question.

Holger Pfister, Executive Vice President Partners at COMPAREX, sees this accolade as confirmation that the company has defined the right focus:
“In no later than three years, the overwhelming majority of software licenses will be sold as part of Cloud models. We are already perfectly equipped to meet the needs of this new market, not merely with our Cloud expertise itself, but above all thanks to the Managed Services we offer additionally, for instance the Cloud Compliance Solution ‘SAM2GO’. Moreover, our Cloud growth with Microsoft clearly indicates that Public Cloud solutions are becoming increasingly accepted in our core market of Europe.”
