Sydney 3 May 2023: For two consecutive years, Barhead Solutions has been named a leader in Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Power Platform services by global research and advisory firm ISG in its Provider Lens™ Microsoft Cloud Ecosystem report.

To be placed in the leader quadrant alongside global system integrators such as Accenture, DXC Technology, Velrada and PwC, a company needs to hold a strong market position in terms of revenue and successful deals won. These are in addition to having a strong strategy and vision, and an effective marketing presence and brand reputation.

Barhead CEO Ken Struthers has expressed his pride in this achievement as well as the company’s commitment to delivering exceptional services to its customers.  


‘This recognition is proof of our success in developing and implementing compelling products and services across different industries. Barhead continuously strives to be at the forefront of the market and will continue to pursue excellence as an award-winning Microsoft partner recognised as a leading partner by ISG.’
