Adastra Wins Microsoft's Commercial Enterprise Partner of the Year

TORONTO — Adastra Corporation, a global leader in Data Management and Analytics, has been awarded the Commercial Enterprise Partner of the Year Award and the Application Innovation Award – Manufacturing, at the Microsoft 2019 IMPACT awards. 

Adastra, a GTA-based data analytics firm, is one of the fastest-growing Azure Data & AI Partners in Canada, growing Azure consumption by 900 percent year-over-year in FY19. Alongside this growth, Adastra’s strategy has secured it as Microsoft’s go-to Data and AI partner in Canada for co-sell engagements, enriching its connection to large enterprise clients such as BMO, Magna, Finastra, Rogers and Just Energy as well as corporate clients such as Fleet Complete, Kik and Empire Life. 

“Our partnership with Microsoft has quickly become an integral part of our business,” says Darren Edery, CEO, Adastra Corporation. “We are accomplishing more together than either could alone, leveraging our combined capabilities to provide customers with cutting-edge solutions to complex business challenges.” 

In addition to Data and AI, Adastra supports clients in their full Digital Transformation journey. Its expertise in user experience and design have reinforced Azure-based solutions ranging from the remediation of Power BI architecture to the development of end-to-end cloud solutions. 

While the advanced Azure ecosystem, market presence and partner network are important aspects of the alliance, the secret ingredient is the genuine and mutual interest for joint success between Adastra and Microsoft as well as their customers. The technological opportunities are endless when values and business goals align. 

“We are inspired and powered by our partners who help generate more than 95 percent of Microsoft’s commercial revenue,” says Suzanne Gagliese, VP One Commercial Partner, Microsoft Canada. “Adastra helps make this possible by providing customers with the tools to overcome disruption and lead transformation in their industries.”
