Protiviti Recognized as a Finalist for 2021 Microsoft Global Partner of the Year Awards

Protiviti’s SAP on Azure solution enabled client’s enterprise-wide data migration to the Microsoft cloud.

MENLO PARK, CA - July 8, 2021 – Global consulting firm Protiviti has been named a finalist of the 2021 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards in the SAP on Azure category for its solution to a client’s need to migrate its enterprise-wide data platform to the cloud. Protiviti was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology during the past year.

Specifically, Protiviti was recognized for providing an outstanding solution and services in SAP on Microsoft Azure to California-based Graton Resort and Casino that needed to migrate and re-platform its entire enterprise data warehouse. With a compressed schedule to meet, the tribal and casino leadership turned to Protiviti to migrate their legacy data warehouse to SAP HANA on Microsoft Azure. As a result, Graton Resort and Casino was able to make data-driven business decisions and forecasts, including real-time decisions on the casino floor. This allowed for the ability to provide highly customized customer loyalty programs and offers, significantly driving revenue and profitability. The flexibility and elastic nature of Microsoft Azure was the best vehicle to ensure the agility that Protiviti needed for a complex data and content migration under tight timelines.

“The SAP on Microsoft Azure solution we developed for our client Graton Resort and Casino is one we believe quickly adapts to the needs of many organizations looking to transition to a cloud-based data environment,” said Evelyn Zabo, a Protiviti managing director and Microsoft Alliance lead. “Our strong relationship with Microsoft over more than a decade has been instrumental in our ability to offer and implement agile and innovative solutions for our clients’ most pressing technology challenges.”

The 2021 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards honorees were chosen from a set of more than 4,400 submitted nominations from over 100 countries worldwide. “I am honored to announce the winners and finalists of the 2021 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards,” said Rodney Clark, corporate vice president, Global Partner Solutions, Channel Sales and Channel Chief, Microsoft. “These remarkable partners have displayed a deep commitment to building world-class solutions for customers—from cloud-to-edge—and represent some of the best and brightest our ecosystem has to offer.”

Protiviti was previously recognized as a finalist for the Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards in 2020 for social impact and in 2019 for diversity and inclusion. Learn more about Protiviti’s SAP consulting services and Microsoft consulting services.
