Altus Dynamics On 'Cloud 9' Following Shortlisting For Microsoft Cloud Partner Of The Year Award 2012

Altus Dynamics, announced today that they have been selected as an awards finalist in the category of Microsoft Cloud Partner of the Year at the upcoming Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference to be held in Toronto from July 8 to 12th 2012.

The Microsoft Cloud Partner of the Year Award honours a partner that has sold and deployed innovative solutions/ services for customers with hybrid on-premises, public cloud, and private cloud needs. Finalists for this award needed to demonstrate the breadth and depth of their expertise in Microsoft public and private cloud solutions and services.

"We are proud to recognize our 2012 Partner Award finalists for their outstanding commitment to solving customer challenges," said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp. "Our partners are critical to our success as a company, and it is their creativity and innovative thinking in solving the unique needs of our customers that serves as the foundation for mutual, long-term success. We congratulate this year's finalists on their achievements and look forward to following their continued success in the future."

"When Nicola and I started Altus almost 10 years ago as a focused organization serving the government, non-profit and education sectors in Canada, little did I dream that our company would reach a pinnacle such as this. To be recognised by Microsoft as one of their top Partners delivering mission critical applications in the Cloud, amongst the entire Worldwide network is incredible," commented Altus Dynamics Founding Partner and VP of Product Innovation, James Faw. And lightning truly can strike twice, as Altus Dynamics are also a finalist in the Dynamics Public Sector Partner of the Year category.

The vision behind the creation of Altus Dynamics was to develop an organization that would focus exclusively on implementing the best applications available in the market, in the best possible way for customers. The advent of Cloud has presented new options and opportunities for Altus to meet the unique challenges faced by its clients as they carry out their valuable work in society. Underlying this is an absolute belief in the Dynamics solutions developed and supported by Microsoft. Being shortlisted as a finalist in the category which encompasses these two elements is a reflection of the organization commitment to its vision.

"WPC is Microsoft's biggest Partner focused event of the year. We always get great value from attending and when we heard it would be held in Toronto in 2012, we were very excited at the prospect of having it in our backyard. Now that we are attending as one of only a handful of Canadian companies, shortlisted for an award, well two actually, from nearly 3,000 entries, we're ecstatic," said Colin Dickinson, Managing Partner of Altus Dynamics. "We've had great success with CRM in the Cloud. Our project for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada was one of the largest single Microsoft Cloud deals of 2011, helping us rank no. 1 in Canada and 7th worldwide. We are very proud of what we have done and foresee a bright future for our Cloud practice as more and more client projects complete and deploy," he added.
