Microsoft Partner awards 2018

This year’s awards are more focused than usual, with the number of categories cut down from 26 to just eleven...

Finalists for the 11th annual Microsoft New Zealand Partner Awards have now been announced in each of the 11 categories.

The number of categories was reduced this year from 26 to 11, shifting the focus to how partners address their customers’ needs and their own digital transformations. Categories include Engaging Customers, Cloud for Good, Empowering Employees and Modern Workplace.

“So many of our partners have demonstrated outstanding technical excellence, that fantastic Kiwi entrepreneurial spirit and above all, a strong focus on making their customers’ lives easier,” says Phil Goldie, One Commercial Partner Director for Microsoft New Zealand.

“We may have streamlined the awards to make it easier to enter this year, but the judges will have a tougher decision than ever.”

Goldie says that what stands out with this year’s finalists is “the transformative nature” of the work being done.

“They’re using technology, data and platforms in clever ways that really makes a difference to every aspect of their customers’ operations, enabling them to be in a much stronger position for the future,” Goldie says.

“Every one of these finalists deserves to be celebrated and I’d like to offer them my congratulations, as well as every one of Microsoft’s partners who took the time to enter. I can’t wait to see what the judges decide and see who the ultimate winners are.”
