BUI has won the Microsoft Cloud Platform Partner of the Year accolade at Microsoft South Africa's 2018 Partner Awards. The gala presentation was held last night (9 October 2018) in Johannesburg.

In addition, BUI was named as a finalist in the Hybrid Cloud Partner of the Year and Modern Workplace Partner of the Year categories.

The awards ceremony is held annually to acknowledge Microsoft partners that have excelled in delivering Microsoft solutions. Judging takes place across numerous competencies, and is based on criteria including innovation, customer acquisition, social responsibility commitments, and more.

BUI Managing Director Ryan Roseveare was thrilled to receive the Microsoft Cloud Platform Partner of the Year trophy. "This is a repeat win for BUI. It's also the award everyone wants to win," he said, adding that this victory marks BUI's fourth consecutive achievement in this cloud-centric category.

BUI's specialist teams in Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban needed to be congratulated, said Roseveare. "We grew our already large Azure base by 300% and performed several world-first Azure services migrations."

With cloud adoption gaining traction in South Africa, and the imminent launch of Microsoft's hyperscale cloud data centres in Cape Town and Johannesburg, Roseveare said it's an exciting time to be in the industry.
