Bolivia Partner of the Year
SoftwareONE Bolivia has been awarded with the Bolivia Partner of the Year Award by Microsoft. The subsidiary in South America grew from one employee to a team of eleven people based in Bolivia’s two main cities La Paz and Santa Cruz. We talked to Milton Diaz and Dante Paniagua from the Bolivian team about their motivation, challenges, daily routines and future plans.
What are the challenges in the market and how have you handled them?
Milton Diaz: The team is focused on Microsoft cloud solutions, however, the local market in Bolivia is quite challenging. While the IT market is growing by 6% year over year, cloud adoption is rather slow due to governmental regulations. Our team’s approach is to advance cloud projects step by step using hybrid solutions.
Do you have any team rituals?
Dante Paniagua: Every Monday morning, I buy cuñapes, a Bolivian cheese bread, for all subsidiary members and send an inspirational message. Our weekly team meeting is also very important.
Milton Diaz: Indeed, team meetings are very important. We also try to do fun activities together or grab a drink together during happy hour.
