Microsoft celebrates partner success

LOCAL Microsoft partners scooped up a number of awards at the company’s annual partner conference in Queensland last week.

Steve Haddock, Microsoft partner group manager, says that although there isn’t enough New Zealand content in the programme, Kiwi partners can still benefit from the experience.

“It’s mitigated by the fact that 90% of the ratios are the same in Australia and New Zealand. Partners get out of it what they want — Microsoft doesn’t have a rigid schedule so if all they want to do is have fun, that’s fine,” he says. Haddock believes the event is getting better each year and says that several partners indicated they would be bringing more delegates next year. He says there is no doubt partners were excited about the product roadmaps for Vista and Offices. He is thrilled with the success of local companies in the awards section and says those that won make him feel good about the quality of his company’s partners. “We looked at all our partners over four key categories and they were all measured on the same scale, so it really came down to who was best. A point of difference was the small business partner which was measured on revenue influence rather than sales.”

And the award goes to …
