Meet this year’s Microsoft Virtualization Partner of the Year: M7 Global Partners, a consortium of the US’ leading partner firms, AEC Group, Entisys Solutions/Agile360, Gotham Technology Group, IntraSystems, IPM, LPS Integration, and Right! Systems.
Prior to 2010, these seven partners were not collectively focused on virtualization, and as such, lacked a sales pipeline and few opportunities for success.
After joining forces, they were able to successfully shift their focus from VMware to Microsoft, becoming valuable assets to the US subsidiary, landing as managed partners and achieving their Microsoft Gold Certifications. M7’s vision to accelerate sales execution in desktop virtualization and cloud computing is the go-to desktop virtualization partner for their customers.
This vision incorporates the broad array of Microsoft’s offerings across virtualization, systems management, Windows client and cloud solutions including Office 365.
Finalists were Bechtle (Germany) and Citrix Systems (United States)
