Double award win for Broad Horizon’s Finnish consultancy, Sulava, at the Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards

Broad Horizon’s recently acquired Finnish Workplace consultancy, Sulava, has won two local awards at the 2022 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards. Sulava’s winning two Microsoft Finland accolades are from the Country Partner of the Year nomination in the categories of Teams and Modern Work/Security & Compliance

In March 2022, Broad Horizon continued its Nordic expansion with the acquisition of Sulava building on its growth in Microsoft cloud solutions. Broad Horizon now has 400 employees in the Nordic region divided between Finnish Sulava and Danish Delegate and Projectum. 

Jean-Yves Charlier, CEO of Broad Horizon said of Sulava’s Microsoft award wins: The recent addition of Sulava to our incredibly talented cloud community was already a key milestone for the development of Broad Horizon in North Europe. Winning two Microsoft Partner of the Year awards simply confirms the strength of our Microsoft cloud offerings and I want to congratulate the Sulava team for taking their Microsoft expertise to the next level.” 

Sulava has 700+ customers who operate in more than 100 countries and has been Finland’s leading cloud partner since 2010. This has been made possible by the incredible knowledge and expertise of the Sulava team and its continuous investment in training and development. 

Aki Antman, CEO of Sulava said: “It’s a fantastic achievement and honour to win these two awards and the entire Sulava team should feel very proud. In addition to Sulava’s unrivalled expertise, our success is based on a genuine desire to work in partnership with our customers. We share a common goal to be at the forefront of developing and improving working life through technology.” 

Sulava is one of the world’s first Microsoft Metaverse partners. According to a recent McKinsey survey, 95% of executives interviewed believe the Metaverse will open up new business opportunities and bring significant positive effects. 

Sulava’s two award wins are at the heart of the Metaverse, and the upcoming Mesh expansion from Microsoft Teams will significantly accelerate their customers’ transition to the Metaverse. 

Over the past year, Sulava has been building a Metaverse offering and is committed to developing its customers’ expertise to help reap the full benefits of their investment in Microsoft technologies. 

Sulava and its current team of 120 sit at the forefront of digital service business and has been an official Microsoft partner since 2010.
