It's Awards Season for Microsoft Partners

Behind the scenes, Microsoft organizes press meet-and-greets with the winners and markets those winners to potential customers.

Yes, big, well-connected partners win repeatedly -- but many smaller partners, especially those with tightly focused practices, make the list each year, too.

Eric Ligman posted a lengthy blog entry this week going through this year's categories and rules. Check it out here.
