Impresses with two other awards by Microsoft
DMS Electronics (Pvt) Ltd. (DMSE) bagged the coveted Best Managed Partner Award for the second consecutive year at the Microsoft Sri Lanka 2011 Partner Conference held recently.
The award recognised DMSE’s superior achievement of Microsoft’s stringent criteria for ‘Best Managed Partner’ in FY 2010/2011, which included revenue targets, breadth of account coverage and marketing activities.
DMS Electronics also received a Recognition Award for its contribution as Unified Communications and Virtualisation Partner. This was in acknowledgement of the company’s pioneering work in promoting and deploying Microsoft’s Unified Communications and Virtualisation Solutions.
This year’s Partner Awards Ceremony, which coincided with Microsoft Sri Lanka’s seventh anniversary, also saw DMSE being presented with an ‘Appreciation Award for its Powerful Partnership’ with Microsoft over the last seven years.
“DMSE has demonstrated its consistency in winning the Best Managed Partner Award for the second successive year,” said Peter Peiris, DMSE’s Group Manager for Enterprise Software Solutions who accepted the award from Microsoft’s President South East Asia – New Markets, Jamie Harper. “We dedicate this award to all those customers, big and small, who placed their confidence in us.”
Commenting on the Recognition Award as a ‘Unified Communication and Virtualisation Partner,’ Peiris said: “Our technical team has some of the best skills in Unified Communications and Virtualisation Technologies in the market. We have largely relied on local expertise while deploying Microsoft Technologies like OCS/LYNC and Hyper V for our customers and the team’s dedication to excellence and service has been legendary.”
DMS Electronics Managing Director Lal Chandranath said: “DMSE has had a long relationship with Microsoft which dates back to even before the Microsoft subsidiary was setup in Sri Lanka. As we ourselves celebrate our 30th anniversary, we are happy to have received all this recognition from Microsoft.”
“DMSE has been a most valued and consistent partner for Microsoft Sri Lanka over the years,” said Microsoft Sri Lanka Country Manager Sriyan De S. Wijeyeratne. “Apart from handling many strategic and pioneering deployments for Microsoft over the years, DMSE also manages Microsoft Sri Lanka’s largest Enterprise Agreement.” “DMSE will continue to exploit Microsoft technologies and marry them with other complementary products we carry to provide complete solutions,” says General Manager overlooking DMSE’s Microsoft Business Unit Chandana Weerasinghe.
“Microsoft has placed a great deal of emphasis on the emerging technologies around the ‘Cloud’ and Unified Communications and DMSE is in the forefront of taking these technologies to the market. As an example we are currently working with Microsoft and Citrix to enable Virtual Desktop Solutions for a number of customers and these solutions will be ideal for customers with large and unwieldy PC deployments.”
