Drum roll please: Microsoft’s partner of the year winners and finalists were announced earlier today. The company said the winners were culled from over 2,000 entries and will be honored at the Worldwide Partner Conference in New Orleans next month.
Many of the usual suspects were there. CDW (!) won for advanced infrastructure solutions/systems management. The other finalists in that category were Dimension Data, Australia; Avanade; and Accenture.
In the Large Account Reseller (LAR) category, Dimension Data, Austrlia took top prize, follwoed by CDW and Softchoice.
The full list is here.
Given the economy and a non-scientific poll of VARs, it looks like WPC attendance will be a little thin this year.
