Microsoft names this year's Partner Awards finalists

Dimension Data, Enlighten Designs and Theta Systems finalists of the Partners' Choice CIO of the Year

Microsoft says the bar has been raised for the fifth edition of its annual Partner Awards. The company has today announced the finalists for the different categories.

“This is the fifth year we’ve held the New Zealand Partner Awards and Partners have definitely raised the bar. The high calibre of work is reflected in the number of quality entries submitted this year. We received a number of first-time entries and have a great mix of finalists,” says Chris Ichter, director Small, Midmarket Solutions & Partners Group for Microsoft New Zealand.

The vendor will present 23 awards, split four sub-categories: Solution Awards, Individual Awards, Partner Awards and Supreme Awards.

“The idea is to acknowledge the great work of our local partners and encourage winners to enter solutions into the 2012 World Wide Partner Awards. Our New Zealand Partner community is strong, and we want to celebrate their work both locally and on the world stage,” adds Ichter. Dimension Data, Enlighten Designs and Theta Systems have been named finalists of the Partners' Choice CIO of the Year.
