Glueck & Kanja Consulting AG recognized as 2019 Microsoft Country Partner of the Year for Germany and 2019 Microsoft Global Modern Desktop Partner of the Year.

Glueck & Kanja today proudly announced it has won the 2019 Microsoft Country Partner of the Year Award for Germany and the 2019 Microsoft Global Modern Desktop Award. The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

Christian Kanja, CEO of Glueck & Kanja, is very pleased about the two awards from Redmond: “It was a bet on the future. Avoiding the complexity of hybrid infrastructures and consequently designing for cloud was the basic idea. Similar to Tesla we believed Microsoft had the right vision but there were concerns in the market and technical problems to solve. Focusing on 100% Cloud we were able to provide convincing answers and prove our success hundreds of thousands of times. With achieving the awards Microsoft has – again – acknowledged that we are on track with our efforts.”

Awards were presented in several categories, with winners chosen from a set of more than 2,900 entrants from 115 countries worldwide. Glueck & Kanja was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services in Modern Desktop architecture, as well as representing excellent subsidiary engagement in Germany.

The Microsoft Country Partner of the Year Awards honor partners at the country level that have demonstrated business excellence in delivering Microsoft solutions to multiple customers over the past year. This award recognizes Glueck & Kanja as succeeding in effective engagement with its local Microsoft office while showcasing innovation and business impact, driving customer satisfaction, and winning new customers.

Internationally, Glueck & Kanja was able to further expand its expertise in the field of Modern Desktop. The German company is among the absolute world leaders when it comes to deploying workplaces in the enterprise environment independently of traditional IT infrastructures. Now also known as ‘Starbucks Deployment’, Glueck & Kanja has made a significant contribution in recent years operating modern workplaces completely cloud based - including the necessary applications and state-of-the-art security.

But Glueck & Kanja also added several managed services on top of the cloud based architecture. With the release of the new Microsoft Intune package format in October 2018, the company made it possible to offer hundreds of ready-to-deploy packages to a diverse customer audience that are interested in removing the barriers of an on-premise bound deployment, in favor of a 100% cloud managed Windows 10 experience. In addition, the package management (RealmJoin), data migration service (RealMigrator), certificate services (SCEP and RADIUS) and finally a Cloud Security Operations Center are provided as a service offer.

“We are honored to recognize Glueck & Kanja of Germany as a Microsoft Country and Microsoft Global Modern Desktop Partner of the Year,” said Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft Corp. “Glueck & Kanja has distinguished itself as an exemplary partner, demonstrating remarkable expertise and innovation to help customers achieve more.”

The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions over the past year.
