Microsoft has announced its shortlist for the Microsoft Australia Partner Awards (MAPA) for 2015, running the gamut from startups to seasoned channel operators.

App developer, Readify, has already been announced as Microsoft's Australia Country Partner of the Year 2015. Readify received its award at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference. The MAPA's will be handed out at Microsoft's Australia Partner Conference held on the Gold Coast on 31 August.

Microsoft's director of partner business and development, Phil Goldie, said this year partners had embraced the company's Cloud platforms in unique ways, creating new applications and transforming line-of-business for clients.

"These award-finalist solutions all highlight the extraordinary power of our partnership and proof of customer confidence. It’s very apparent that when customers have a stronger connection with their trusted partner, they also demonstrate a stronger commitment to products like Azure, Office 365 and CRM Online. Most importantly, together we’ve achieved the ability to delight our customers with product and solution offerings that better meet their needs," he said.

"I’m also thrilled that this year we’re recognising our Australia Country Partner of the Year as part of MAPA 2015. The Country Partner of the Year is formally announced at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference and this year in Orlando Readify picked up the award. Congratulations again to the Readify team as well as BizData and Kloud who also picked up WPC awards."

Goldie said that each nomination was judged by three different Microsoft subject matter experts.

Last year's winners, such as Artis Group, Bizdata, Data#3, Ensyst, Ingnia and Kloud all return for 2015.

  • Emerging Partner Award: iiNet, Insync Technology and Inversecurve.
