Microsoft’s Nicole Dezen

Nicole Dezen, Microsoft‘s chief partner officer and corporate vice president of global partner solutions, said over the past year Microsoft’s global and diverse partner ecosystem has supported customers in their digital transformation with Microsoft Cloud applications, services, devices and artificial intelligence (AI) innovation.

“Across the cloud and edge, you have delivered unmatched value and helped organizations grow, run and manage their businesses in new ways,” she said. “The stories recognized with these awards are a showcase of your success in creating innovative solutions for our customers on the Microsoft Cloud.”

Microsoft partners are transforming to address evolving customer needs, responding to their increased demand for the cloud, and delivering IP and services that enable innovation, productivity and customer success, Dezen said.

“Along the way, we have seen partners adapt to the opportunities presented by new technology — from innovative uses of AI in every industry, to solutions enabling industries to operate more sustainably — to drive global impact,” she said. “Through the strength of our collaboration, our partner community and track record of success has continued to grow.”

Microsoft received more than 4,200 nominations across 106 countries/regions for the Partner of the Year awards, Dezen said.

“Congratulations to this year’s winners and finalists, and to all our partners who have demonstrated innovation, commitment to their customers, and consistent delivery of meaningful, accessible, inclusive and sustainable solutions around the globe,” she said.
