Microsoft announces new awards categories

Microsoft New Zealand has announced the date and new categories for the 2011 edition of its Partner Awards. Award submissions will be open from 24 August to 14 October, with finalists announced on 31 October. The event will take place in Auckland on 17 November. “The technology industry is continually changing with new products and services. It is important to adjust the award categories to represent this, and as a result, this year we will include awards that recognize excellence in developing applications for Windows Azure and Windows Phone just to name to,” says Brent Colbert, director – Partner Group at Microsoft. The award categories will be split into five sub-categories, including the following new ones: desktop deployment solution of the year, hosting and data centre solution of the year, virtualization & management solution of the year, business intelligence solution of the year, web development solution of the year, Windows Azure platform solution of the year, as well as Windows Phone solution of the year. There will also be an award for MSN campaign of the year, retailer of the year, BizSpark partner of the year and software exporter of the year (previously ISV solution of the year).

“The 2011 event will be the fifth year of the Partner Awards in New Zealand, and we expect to see an increase in the number of entries, even more importantly the number of partners entering the awards should increase as a result of these exciting new award categories,” adds Colbert.
