"We carry the award of the year’s Scale Partner Europe with pride. It is an acknowledgement of a professional and efficient collaboration between suppliers, distributors and a forward-thinking integrator like Advania. It is a good service that first and foremost benefits our end-customers," said Daniel Albersson, Nordic Manager for Cloud Services at Advania.

Behind the recognition is Ingram Micro’s ranking of partners, which is judged by their maturity within four categories: growth, breadth, depth, and the highest category which measures the ability to scale the business. It’s in this category that Advania is considered the best in Europe.

To qualify to be a Scale Partner – and therefore compete for awards – the partner must have more than ten services in their offering, including infrastructure as a service and managerial services. In addition, an overall digital experience for customers is required on a fully-automated marketplace.

The motivation for Advania as the best Scale Partner in Europe reads:

"Advania offer a unique digital customer journey in a fully-automised delivery of cloud services, and further excels with growth far above the industry average."
