Accenture And Avanade Recognized By Microsoft As Alliance Partner Of The Year

Accenture (NYSE: ACN), a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, and Avanade, a global business technology solutions and managed services provider, have been recognized by Microsoft as the Alliance Partner of the Year and Mobility Partner of the Year. Microsoft also awarded Accenture and Avanade with Partner of the Year in Spain and Germany. This continues the companies’ streak of earning more Microsoft partner awards worldwide than any other company to date.

Accenture and Avanade received Microsoft’s Alliance Partner of the Year award for demonstrating business excellence in delivering Microsoft solutions to customers and driving customer satisfaction and innovation. Together, Accenture and Avanade have collaborated on more than 10,000 Microsoft-based business and public service projects for more than 3,700 global clients.

“We’re pleased to be honored with these awards in recognition of our ability to help customers meet business goals with agility, speed, and certainty,” said Tom Yemc, global managing director of Accenture’s Microsoft Alliance. “Additionally, our mobility strategy has led to a track record of over ten years of successful transformational mobile projects with Microsoft, including bringing Windows 8 Mobility platforms to the enterprise market.”

“At Avanade, we believe the most innovative companies are becoming digital businesses focused on harnessing the power behind interconnected technology trends with mobility at the center,” said Ian Jordan, Avanade executive vice president for sales, marketing, alliances and innovation. “Microsoft recognition overall and especially in mobility underscores our Microsoft leadership in delivering innovation that drives results for our customers.”

“The alliance we have with Accenture and Avanade offers a unique value proposition for customers resulting in successful, agile and rapid implementations of business technology solutions on the Microsoft platform,” said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp. “Microsoft’s proven value and lower total cost of ownership combined with Accenture’s deep industry knowledge and delivery skills and Avanade’s expertise in Microsoft capabilities allow us to deliver technology insights that drive improved business performance.”
