Microsoft Recognizes U.S. Partners with Awards in Dozens of Categories

Microsoft on Friday honored 39 partner companies with an inaugural set of MSUS Partner Awards.

"Designed to supplement the Microsoft Partner of the Year program, both award programs use the same nominations and nomination tool; however, the MSUS Partner Award program focuses on US-specific partner impact," according to a blog posted by the Microsoft U.S. Partner Team listing the winners.

The U.S. awards come a few weeks after the release of the annual worldwide Partner of the Year winners list and precede the Microsoft Inspire 2018 conference for partners next month.

As with the worldwide awards, Microsoft is using the U.S. awards to recognize partners who are contributing to the four new business areas that emerged as part of the massive Worldwide Commercial Business reorganization last summer. Those include Modern Workplace, Business Applications, Applications & Infrastructure, and Data & Artificial Intelligence. Each of those business areas has between four and six award categories.

Microsoft also handed out awards for the six vertical industries that, as part of that reorg, were supposed to be strategic: manufacturing, financial services, retail, health, education and government. Additionally, there is a U.S. partner vertical industry award for communications and media.

Other categories recognize partners who made contributions around strategic-for-Microsoft initiatives, including Azure, the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program, co-sell initiatives and the Partner Seller, or P-Seller, program.

The list also names the finalists for Microsoft U.S. Partner of the Year. Icertis was announced as the U.S. Partner of the Year in early June along with all the other country winners, but the new list reveals that Quisitive and 10th Magnitude were finalists for the award.

Here are the 2018 MSUS Partner Award winners:
