| 20 June 2023

A trusted partner for digital transformation

Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe and 21 of its subsidiaries have attained all six Microsoft Cloud Solutions Partner Designations, underscoring its comprehensive capabilities across all Microsoft Cloud Solution areas.

Following the restructuring of Microsoft's partner programme in 2022, aimed at highlighting organisations with proven experience, in order to guide customers through their cloud journeys, Konica Minolta in Europe quickly adapted. The company secured all six available Solutions Partner designations, thereby showcasing its expertise in Data & AI (Azure), Digital & App Innovation (Azure), Infrastructure (Azure), Modern Work, Security, and Business Applications.


Obtaining a Microsoft Solutions Partner designation requires meeting stringent requirements in terms of skills (technical aptitude), performance (number of customers), and customer success (deployment outcomes). "Securing these designations is a testament to our team's commitment to excellence," Norihisa Takayama continued.
