This award is a testament to the hard work of our Engineering & Delivery teams and our back-office Commercial, Finance, Marketing and HR departments, all of which contribute globally to achieving outstanding customer outcomes with speed and scale. Our success is bolstered by the fantastic, collaborative partnership we have with Microsoft in this region. I eagerly anticipate further developing our partnership over the next 12 months to help more enterprises realize business value through the adoption of Azure Extend & Innovate solutions with SAP landscapes." Group CEO, Dan Barlow.


The award acknowledges Kagool's dedication to driving innovative solutions in the fields of cognitive services and Generative AI.

Kagool supported the creation of an Artificial Intelligence Platform to assist Federal Governments in accelerating the adoption of AI by integrating Azure cognitive services disconnected containers with the Azure Open AI PTUs. This integration enables data sovereignty and high security for the public sector.
