The Microsoft Australia Partner Conference of 2014 finished last week, and we were up for a MAPA award in the Small Business Partner of the Year Category.
Watch a little video of the big moment here:
Unfortunately we didn’t win, though congratulations to X Central for their winning customer solution (which was also nominated at the World Partner Conference in Seattle!).
As always we’ve taken a lot away from the conference, and are looking forward to the year ahead – (James and Bernard took away more than others when they made the top two times in the Dicker Data car racing game. James won an Xbox, and Bernard won an Xbox and a Surface Pro 3.)
This year we are looking forward to deploying some great solutions around Microsoft Azure. We’ve been doing a lot of testing internally and it’s an incredible platform with so many possibilities.
Speaking of platforms, Office 365 development is another big opportunity. Our SharePoint work has gone through the roof in the last couple of months and there is a lot more of it on the horizon.
SharePoint Online is a hugely underutilised aspect of Office 365, and it could be the most valuable business tool you’ll ever use. Keep an eye out for a few of our case studies in the next few weeks.
