History of IAMCP
1994 – Foundation of IAMCP International
Since its inception in 1994, IAMCP has worked to bring together the best Microsoft partners to leverage their shared strengths for customers while strengthening ties with Microsoft.
2005 – Foundation of IAMCP Switzerland
Motivated by the success of IAMCP International, some well-known Swiss Microsoft partners founded the IAMCP Chapter Switzerland in 2005 with the same goals as IAMCP International. The majority of these founding partners or their successor organisations are still actively represented in the association today.
In cooperation with other IAMCP chapters, IAMCP EMEA and IAMCP International, IAMCP Switzerland offers a national, cross-country, Europe-wide and worldwide cooperation platform and initiatives as well as support in cooperation with Microsoft from the local country organization to Microsoft Corp.
The association is independent of Microsoft in its work. However, he works in partnership with Microsoft Switzerland and Microsoft Corporation to achieve the association's goals. The purpose of the association is not aimed at an economic activity or the achievement of profit.
2020 – IAMCP Next and 15th Anniversary
IAMCP Switzerland celebrated its 15th anniversary in September 2020. More than 80 partners are currently united in the chapter. To this end, the Chapter has also launched the IAMCP Next initiative. Inspired by IAMCP Germany and modern network ideas, their changing business models and also the requirements of the partners, the initiative aims to achieve closer cooperation with Microsoft, a simplified flow of know-how from Microsoft to IAMCP and its partners and improved support for smaller Microsoft partners in their journey.
