Microsoft Names 2010 Partners of the Year
Microsoft released its annual list of Partner of the Year Award winners Wednesday. This year’s list features more winners than in the past from among Microsoft’s 390,000-member community of Gold Certified, Certified and Registered Member partners.
A new category this year is Partner of the Year at the country level. For the United States, that honor goes to Slalom Consulting, an 800-person National Systems Integrator based in Seattle. Slalom was also named Business Intelligence Partner of the Year and Information Worker Solutions, Collaboration Partner of the Year. Avanade, the global consulting agency that got its start with a joint investment from Accenture and Microsoft, also cleaned up in the 2010 awards. The U.S. unit won three awards and the U.K. unit won another award.
The awards will be presented at this year's Microsoft Wordwide Partners Conference (WPC) in Washington, D.C., next month. We’ll provide more in-depth coverage of the awards in our August issue. But for now, you can see the complete list on Microsoft’s site.
