Leading financial software and technology solutions provider MillenniumIT received the Microsoft Country Partner of the Year 2015 award at the recently held ‘Worldwide Partner Conference’ in Orlando, Florida. MillenniumIT was honoured among top players in a global arena for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions using mobile-first cloud-first based Microsoft solutions.
Delivering mission-critical solutions in Cloud, data-centre and server environment provisioning, monitoring and administration, MillenniumIT supported the 1st Azure Enterprise Agreement (EA) in the country.

Working with Microsoft’s mobile-first cloud-first platform, MillenniumIT powered many companies during the past year; both locally and overseas. This platform connects mobile phones used by employees to the companies they work for through Microsoft’s tools, thereby diffusing the compartmentalisation of business and consumer, and facilitating a truly bring-your-own-device (BOYD) environment.
