Black and gold banner written “Microsoft South Africa FY20 Microsoft Partner Awards”

JOHANNESBURG: 1 October 2020 – Microsoft South Africa hosted its first ever virtual Partner Awards last night to recognise and acknowledge the excellent performance of its partners, despite the various challenges experienced by businesses across the country for the most part of this year.

This year’s MD Partner of the Year is Global Computing and Telecoms.

Lionel Moyal, Commercial Partners Lead at Microsoft South Africa, “Global Computing and Telecoms understands the importance of focusing equally on technology and people to enable effective digital transformation, and they have built strong capabilities in Adoption and Change Management as well as Training to ensure that our technologies deliver on the promise of empowering our customers.

As a participant in our Emerging Partner programme, they demonstrated clarity of purpose, dedication and tenacity with the objective of becoming a leader in deployment and implementation of cloud solutions for our customers.”

Despite being a relatively small organisation, Global Computing and Telecoms attained 13 Gold Competencies and featured in the top 10 South African partner list, with the most individuals certified on  Microsoft Azure, Modern Work and Security.

Since the last Partner Awards, Microsoft has seen unprecedented change and the acceleration of digital transformation as well as resilience and innovation from partners, who have built technologies across the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge that allow organisations to connect, operate and carry on.

Moyal concludes,” As we congratulate this year’s winners and finalists, we acknowledge the displays of agility and creativity from our partners that are helping to reimagine a new world for businesses.  We look forward to continued partnerships that build new products and services and support our customers as they become more digitally resilient.”
