NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN for this year’s Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards!


Celebrated annually at Microsoft Inspire, these awards recognize outstanding successes and innovations from across our global and diverse partner ecosystem. Partners can submit to a variety of categories that showcase the range of solutions built on Microsoft cloud and platforms, including two new awards that we’ve added this year:


  • The FastTrack Ready Award recognizes partner excellence in assisting claimed customers to realize value through delivery of the FastTrack Benefit for Microsoft 365. As a member of the FastTrack Ready Partner Community, the winner will exemplify the traits of a FastTrack Ready program partner, from how they engage with Microsoft, to how they execute service delivery with customers and integrate the FastTrack Benefit into their customer go-to-market approach.  
  • The GSI Growth Champion Award for Microsoft GSI or advisory partners who have demonstrated significant growth across multiple solution areas, solution plays, industries and or regions. With a strong focus on cloud migration and modernization, the Growth Champion is a recognized leader in identifying the right Microsoft Cloud solutions and successfully driving digital transformation, at scale, for our joint customers.
