What are the MAPAs you ask? They are the Microsoft Australia Partner Awards, presented every year at the Australian Partner Conference.
Paradyne was a finalist in 2011 as well, alongside Ensyst and OSC – with OSC taking the award.
This year we are up against Ensyst again but with OSC being replaced by Barwon Computer Solutions – a regional IT company in Victoria doing great work with Microsoft cloud services.

I wish all other finalists the best of luck in their respective categories!
