REVEALED: 2015 Microsoft New Zealand Partner Award Finalists…

Microsoft New Zealand has revealed its 2015 Partner Awards finalists, with a heavy focus on cloud enterprise and platforms.

Microsoft New Zealand has announced today the finalists for the 2015 Microsoft Partner Awards.

Brent Kendrick, Microsoft New Zealand’s SMB and Partner Lead, says there was an impressive range of entries for the 2015 Awards, with a significant increase in new partners who have never competed before pitching their business solutions for consideration.

“The quality of entries this year has been truly outstanding, and shows the extent to which partners have been joining Microsoft on our journey of transformation towards becoming the productivity and platform company for a mobile-first, cloud first world,” he says.
