Digicloud Africa has been named the 2020 Google Cloud Expansion Partner of the Year.


Digicloud Africa, a Google Cloud reseller enablement partner in Africa, has been named the 2020 Google Cloud Expansion Partner of the Year – Europe, Middle East, and Africa. The annual award recognizes one global partner in the region who has demonstrated exceptional success in assisting a large number of customers in achieving better results through Google Cloud’s platform and Google Workspace.

“We’re proud to recognize Digicloud Africa’s growth with Google Cloud and their commitment to helping a growing number of customers succeed,” Global Channel Chief at Google Cloud, Carolee Gearhart, said in a statement.

Gearhart elaborated Digicloud Africa demonstrated strong technical capabilities and had expanded its customer operations in the previous year.

The company, based in Johannesburg, provides technology and cloud migration solutions to others.

Digicloud Africa’s services also include workspace transformation tools and end-to-end cloud strategy support.

“It’s an unbelievable honour to be one of the first African-based companies to ever win a Google Cloud Partner of the Year Award,” Digicloud Africa CEO, Gregory MacLennan, said in a statement.

“The past year has brought about a rapid, almost frantic adoption of technology across industries to streamline the necessity of remote working, but also for companies to accelerate digital transformation as a whole.”

MacLennan also recognized other resellers who he said were critical to Google Cloud’s adoption in Africa in 2020. Incentro Africa, Dotmodus, and Deimos were among the companies involved.

He went on to say that Digicloud Africa was looking forward to assisting other businesses in adopting cloud technology in the future.
