Johannesburg – Local Internet of Things firm IoT.nxt will open its first official international office in the next few days and has also achieved Microsoft Gold Partner status.

This represents the highest level of competence and expertise with Microsoft technologies and means the company has a close working relationship with Microsoft, according to CEO Nico Steyn.

IoT.nxt achieved Microsoft Gold Partner status for its data platform this month, less than a year since the company was recognised as a Silver Partner.

The company joins 68 other Gold Partners for data platform in South Africa, and is now in the select company of 568 Gold Partners for all competencies in the country.

“Achieving Gold Partner status is testament to the commitment of our team as they are required to pass stringent assessments. Migrating from Silver to Gold Partner status in a relatively short period of time was achieved thanks to the fast – and accelerating – growth IoT.nxt has achieved since the start of the year,” Steyn said.

“As our company is currently expanding beyond South Africa, we are excited to now be included in the global community of Gold Partners, a support community of technology companies with comparable challenges,” he added.
