Out of 2,500 entries from 119 countries, Xebia has been recognized as a finalist in the Microsoft 2016 Open Source on Azure Award. The main reason for this nomination is the innovative approach to implementing customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

Xebia receives praise for the implementation of the first Cloudera production cluster on Azure at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. In this project, Xebia collaborated with Xpirit (also part of Xebia Group), who also received a nomination.

Rob Dielemans, managing director of Xebia, says: “We are proud to receive recognition for our work at Schiphol Group. With this project, we demonstrated that it is no longer necessary to exclusively use technology from one supplier. By combining technology, no matter what brand is on the box, we are able to create the best possible customer solution.”

“Our partner ecosystem is the cornerstone to providing innovative solutions that contribute to the digital transformation of organizations”, Gavriella Schuster, general manager of Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp. adds. “We are pleased to select Xebia and Xpirit as 2016 Microsoft Open Source on Azure award finalists.”

During Microsoft’s global partner conference, which will take place from July 10-14 in Toronto, Microsoft will hand out the prizes. Needless to say, Xebia and Xpirit, together with several hundreds of other attendees from The Netherlands, will be present at this celebration.
