Ljubljana, June 2018 – Stroka Business Group has received the 2018 Microsoft Country Partner of the Year Award for Slovenia. The company received this award together with the best Microsoft partners worldwide for its excellence in innovation and the implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technologies.
“We are happy and proud that Microsoft has for the second year in a row awarded us with the Microsoft Partner of the Year Award for Slovenia, so that we now have a total of three. Kudos and thanks for this achievement go especially to our employees who use their skills and passion for new technologies to implement new customer solutions, helping them achieve better results,” said Sandi Markon, CEO and owner of Stroka Business Group. “We follow our strategy and focus on using cloud services, while upgrading our status of an advanced development partner that tests and implements the latest and most innovative Microsoft technologies on the market. During past year of developing innovative solutions we focused especially on business scenarios that are based on utilizing the Azure cloud platform services, which bring an added value through the use of available applicative services. Azure is still often perceived as an alternative for merely transposing traditional IT environments into the cloud, which is a highly flawed perspective, and actually makes Azure an uneconomical and inefficient environment. We view it from a completely different perspective, and will soon be able to present very concrete scenarios of use in our new demo center in Ljubljana’s Crystal Pallace."
