By David Bass

OpenText has proudly announced it has won the MAPA 2011 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award for ISV/Software Partner of The Year in Australia. The company was chosen out of a national field of top Microsoft Partners for delivering market-leading customer solutions built around the Microsoft platform.

'We are delighted to have been awarded this award from Microsoft here in Australia in 2011,' says Graham Pullen, Vice President Asia Pacific, OpenText.   'The award validates the innovation in our deployments and our commitment to providing high value solutions to Australian public and private sector organisations.  In recent years, OpenText has reached many successful milestones with Microsoft and it is now clear that we have emerged as a leader and visionary through providing next generation technology and services. We look forward to working closely with Microsoft in the Australian market in the years ahead.'

Awards were presented in 21 categories, and OpenText was recognised for superior technology and innovation as an ISV/Software Partner.  The ISV/Software Partner of the Year Award recognises Partners who have delivered exemplary solutions using Microsoft technologies to address customer business needs and challenges.  

OpenText enterprise content management (ECM) solutions for Microsoft enable companies to better govern their enterprise information by adding the records management and archiving capabilities necessary for legal compliance and risk mitigation.  Fully integrated with Microsoft Outlook, Office and SharePoint, the ECM suite is an important influencer in the adoption and success of applications such as SharePoint.  The solutions also enable companies to perform upgrades to the latest software versions including Office 2010, SharePoint 2010, Windows Server 2008

OpenText's strong expertise in industries including oil and gas, utilities, financial services, public sector, law firms and corporate legal departments has led to the development of tailored ECM industry solutions, further driving SharePoint's presence in these key areas.  Additionally, OpenText provides a rich development environment for its extensive partner network, encouraging others to build additional applications to meet the specific needs of industry customers.

'I'm thrilled to announce OpenText as a recipient of a MAPA 2011 Partner of the Year Award,' said Mr Evan Williams, Small and Mid-Size Solutions and Partner Director.

On behalf of Microsoft Australia, we'd like to say congratulations for your outstanding effort.  It's a truly great achievement and demonstrates both the innovation and dedication of OpenText.'

The MAPA programme recognises Microsoft Partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the last year.
