IoT.nxt adds Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform status


Johannesburg, 14 Dec 2018

South African innovator in Internet of things technology, IoT.nxt, added Microsoft Gold Partner status for Cloud Platform to its competencies this month, its second such competency, after it was recognised as a Gold Partner for Data Platform in 2017.

"According to Gartner the worldwide public cloud services market is projected to grow 17.3% in 2019 to total $206.2 billion, up from $175.8 billion in 2018. Being a Microsoft Gold Partner for Data Platform is testament to the commitment of our team as they are required to pass stringent assessments," says CEO Nico Steyn.

"Gold Certified Partners represent the highest level of competence and expertise with Microsoft technologies, and have a close working relationship with Microsoft. Achieving this status recognises our success in the marketplace," Steyn added.

"Being ranked as a Gold Partner provides us with access to a range of support services and a knowledge base at Microsoft, as well as exceptional training opportunities, which will ultimately be to the benefit of our customers. Furthermore, as our company has expanded beyond South Africa, this further Gold Partner status achieved will help us drive our global growth plans," Steyn says.

"Three additional team members have added cloud-based qualifications and became Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCPs), enhancing our knowledge of MS Azure Cloud. IoT.nxt now has 11 MCPs in the team and we will continue to build our Microsoft knowledge base," Steyn says.

"Technology, and IOT technology and strategies specifically, are advancing at a rapid pace. This partnership will assist us in staying up to date with technology capabilities required from us by customers. We believe IOT is not about technology, but about business strategy and approach all our customer relationships from this point of view. Being a Microsoft Gold Partner gives companies we engage with assurance that we are committed to the highest level of excellence and professionalism, with the backing of Microsoft," he added.

IoT.nxt opened its first international office in The Hague in The Netherlands last year and set up operations in the USA for a multimillion-dollar project at public schools in September.
