Twenty-four Microsoft partners have submitted entries in the vendor’s global partner awards set for July, after none entered last year.
Nine partners have put entries forward across 12 categories, with case studies including several mobility projects and custom development work.
Leading the field is Gen-i, which has made 14 entries, including two trainers from subsidary Auldhouse. Microsoft partner group manager for channel sales and operations, Nick Fletcher, says that number of entries puts Gen-i in a group of only 10 partners worldwide who have made more than 10 submissions.
He adds he is not aware of any Australian partners with many entries. “It’s awesome considering the Australian partner community is three times as big.”
Microsoft has yet to call for entries for its local partner awards, scheduled for August with a ceremony in Auckland.
