DDLS has today been named as a finalist in the 2016 Microsoft Australia Partner Awards (MAPA) for Excellence in Learning. This follows the announcement in May that it had won the global WPC 2016 Microsoft Partner Award for learning.

 

DDLS is proud to announce that it has been named as a finalist in the 2016 Microsoft Australian Partner Awards (MAPA), in the category of Excellence in Learning. The company was selected from an Australian field of top Microsoft Partners for delivering market-leading customer solutions built on the Microsoft platform.

With the largest community of Microsoft Certified Trainers in Australia, DDLS is well placed to advise, design, build and deliver highly relevant training, scaling from a single course in an on-premise solution such as SQL Server 2016, through to highly customised learning on cloud-based services such as Azure and Office 365.

“I want to congratulate DDLS on being selected as a finalist of the 2016 Microsoft Australia Partner Excellence in Learning Award. Microsoft’s partner ecosystem is our market differentiator and our awards program celebrates the transformative solutions created by our partners for customers in this country. We are incredibly proud of all the finalists and the roles they play in helping our customers have great experiences with Microsoft products and services.” said Mark Leigh, Director of Small to Midmarket Solutions & Partners, Microsoft Australia.

The 21 categories of the MAPA programme recognise Microsoft Partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the year.

Gary Duffield, Director of Strategic Alliances for DDLS, commented, “We are thrilled to receive this MAPA nomination from Microsoft. We are still celebrating our WPC 2016 Learning Partner of the Year award, so this really is the icing on the cake. A lot of work went into baking that metaphorical cake so for us to be receiving both global and local recognition is tremendous. Huge thanks to our clients and to our subject matter experts. Our highly experienced Microsoft Certified Trainers made building and delivering a multifaceted, geographically diverse and highly customised solution not only possible, but also hugely successful. We thank Microsoft for this acknowledgment and for their continued support in this project. We appreciate their leadership in delivering the content, technologies and services on which we base our learning solutions.”
