The biggest event for Microsoft's partners in Australia is the Microsoft Australia Partner Conference in Brisbane. This year, over 1,000 people packed out the conference centre, and the awards ceremony for the Microsoft Australia Partner Awards was a great way to open the conference. For the Microsoft Australia Education Partner of the Year 2012 the finalists were…
The judging this year was incredibly difficult, as we ended up in a situation where after five rounds of judging the finalists had all achieved an identical score. We ended up having to go to three decimal places to find the ultimate winner!
And the winner of Microsoft Australia Education Partner of the Year 2012 is ClickView
ClickView's digital video solution for schools, is designed to support learning in the classroom by providing a simple and complete solution for watching digital video and other digital media (and if you're not yet using it, then give it a run with their ClickView free trial)
The two other finalists, Data#3, for their Education SharePoint Rapid solution, and Janison, for their Cloud Assessment Framework, CAFE, were both exceptional and creative companies and products, but ClickView just pipped them at the post.
We had some amazing entries this year, with some very innovative projects happening across schools, TAFEs and universities, and I'm hoping to be able to share some more details of the success stories now the award has been announced.
