Microsoft has unveiled finalists for its upcoming Microsoft Australia Partner Awards (MAPA), emphasising the vendor’s growing Cloud footprint across the channel.

To be recognised during the Australia Partner Conference (APC) on September 5-8 in the Gold Coast, the awards showcase examples of partner innovation within the Microsoft channel, with new and emerging technologies such as Cloud and mobility featuring heavily.

“Our partner network is transforming with the Cloud at its core and it’s having an incredible impact on our customers,” Microsoft Director of Partner Development, Phil Goldie, said.

“From the large national players located in metropolitan areas, to smaller yet equally vital partners in regional Australia; this year’s MAPA submissions are a real showcase of the diverse yet powerfully interconnected tapestry that is our partner network.”

Goldie said partners are pushing the envelope in terms of Cloud innovation, with ground-breaking products and services brought to life through the “power of partnership”.

“From an app that counted and tracked tomatoes for the country’s largest tomato processing company, to an Internet of Things solution that saves lives of outdoor workers,” he said.

“The abundant number of submissions this year that build on unique partner IP is undeniable proof that creativity and transformative work is thriving in Australia.”

As previously reported by ARN, MOQdigital took out the 2016 Microsoft Australian Country Partner of the Year award, and will be recognised at the upcoming Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto.
