The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

“What an immense achievement to have received this recognition less than 18 months after we announced our strategic alliance together with Microsoft. We are humbled that a world-renowned brand with such gravitas shares our vision,” said Simon Paris, CEO at Finastra. “We believe the future of finance is open. It’s about improving customer experience and empowering people. This award demonstrates our dedication to delivering innovative solutions that enable true transformation.”

Eli Rosner, Chief Product and Technology Officer at Finastra added, “With our FusionFabric.cloud platform, underpinned by Microsoft Azure, we’re creating an open environment to spark innovation and encourage collaboration across the financial services ecosystem. We’ve already achieved a lot together and, having just co-hosted our first FusionONE open banking developer conference in London in May, we’re excited to see our work continue to new heights. This is just the beginning of our exciting journey.”

Awards were presented in several categories, with winners chosen from a set of more than 2,900 entrants from 115 countries worldwide. Finastra was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services as a Microsoft Alliance Global ISV Partner.
