First company to receive the highest level status in Belgium.
European IT company Cegeka is awarded with the Microsoft Cloud Solutions partner status. “We are very proud to be the first IT company in Belgium to obtain this high level status. This news marks the icing on the cake of our profound partnership with Microsoft”, says Stijn Bijnens, CEO of Cegeka.
Microsoft has evolved their Partner Network to the new Microsoft Cloud Partner Program. A program where the focus is set for one main reason: adapting for digital acceleration. The Microsoft Cloud Partner Program is for all partners in the Microsoft ecosystem, whether they build and sell services, software solutions, or devices.
Cegeka is the first IT company in Belgium to earn a Solutions Partner Designation in all six solution areas: Data & AI (Azure), Infrastructure (Azure), Digital & App Innovation (Azure), Business Applications, Modern Work and Security.
“By attaining all six solutions partner designations Cegeka receives an extra Microsoft Cloud badge: Solutions Partner for Microsoft Cloud, recognizing capabilities across the Microsoft Cloud, delivering customer success in every solution area”, says Erik Kerkhofs, Partner Director BeLux Microsoft. To win a partner designation, a partner has to score strongly in terms of:
- Skilling: this category verifies and demonstrates our dedication to skilling and training by intermediate and advanced certifications
- Performance: The performance category measures our ability to expand our’s and Microsoft's customer base

A solutions partner designation identifies partners with specific capabilities and experiences in high customer demand solution areas. The Microsoft Cloud Solutions Partner status is an incentive for Cegeka to continue expanding and sharpening our knowledge, in close cooperation with Microsoft. “With our proven skills and knowledge we can help our customers with their business challenges making usage of the most recent Microsoft solutions”, says Stijn Bijnens of Cegeka.
