Microsoft partner finalists announced

The full list of finalists for Microsoft’s 2010 New Zealand Partner Awards has been announced.

“We have been impressed with the high-calibre of work that our partners have delivered over the past year and these awards give us an opportunity to recognise and reward our partners for the great work they do,” said Brent Colbert, Director, Partner Strategy at Microsoft.

 

There are 20 awards split into four sub-categories – Solution, Individual, Partnering and Supreme. This year’s ceremony will also feature two new awards; the Partners Choice CIO of the Year Award and Business Impact Solution of the Year Award.

 

“We felt it was important to expand the scope of the awards this year to demonstrate and celebrate more of the top-quality work produced by the industry,” added Colbert.

 

The awards will be held in the Great Room at the Langham Hotel, Auckland on August 18th.
