Celebrating the successes of our Microsoft partner ecosystem in accelerating tech intensity and AI-enabled digital transformation for organisations

 |   Gerald Leo, Director, Commercial Partners and Small Medium Enterprises Group, Microsoft Singapore

2019 has truly been a landmark year for Microsoft in Singapore. Not only are we and our partners playing key roles in driving AI-enabled digital transformation for organisations in Singapore, we have also partnered with SkillsFuture and IMDA to collectively accelerate Singapore’s tech intensity and the development of the country’s 5G innovation ecosystem.

By 2021, artificial intelligence (AI) will nearly double the rate of innovation and employee productivity improvements in Singapore. At the same time, with over 41.6 billion connected devices generating close to 80 zettabytes (ZB) of data by 2025, the possibilities for those in the technology industry are limitless.

With this untapped mine of data, coupled with the potential to harness the high-speed, high-capacity and low latency of 5G technology, this will open up new possibilities for the proliferation of innovative cloud-based applications across industries. By infusing data, AI and mixed reality into the cloud and powering it 5G, we will see the intelligent cloud and the intelligent edge presenting tremendous potential for the industry to come together to nurture a local ecosystem to help transform enterprises.

Just last week, we launched Microsoft’s first Experience Center worldwide for Asia in Singapore, a new platform that brings together the latest technologies to inspire our partners and customers and empower them with the tools and capabilities to go from envisioning to rapid prototyping.

Looking at the opportunities ahead of us, it is more critical now more than ever before for the Microsoft partner ecosystem to focus on building tech intensity. By ensuring not just the adoption of the best-in-class technology but also nurturing local talents who are deeply knowledgeable about the latest technology as well as unique digital capabilities, this will empower our partners with the ability to maximise the impact of technology for organisations across all industries.

Celebrating the achievements of our Microsoft partners

As agents of change that help organisations in Singapore harness the best of technology to transform their businesses, the Microsoft partner ecosystem is already leading the way in tech intensity. Today, we are pleased to recognise some of our partners who have been outstanding in driving digital transformation successes in Singapore at the annual Microsoft Singapore Partner Awards 2019.

At the same time, we would like to appreciate our entire Microsoft partner ecosystem for embarking on this incredible journey together with us as we collectively accelerate AI-enabled digital transformation, build coalitions to nurture a vibrant local technology ecosystem, close the digital skills gap and create societal impact from innovations in AI for a better, smarter Singapore.

This year’s Microsoft Singapore Partner of the Year award winners represent the best and most innovative technology leaders coming out of our partner community. Not only have they delivered cutting-edge solutions to solve complex business challenges and enabled digital transformation successes for their customers, they have also demonstrated a unique customer obsession and competitive differentiation to stand out from the crowd.

Please join me congratulating the winners.
