Project Leadership Associates (PLA) today announced it has been named as a finalist for the 2015 Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Partner of the Year Award. The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.
The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the past year. Awards were presented in several categories, with winners chosen from a set of more than 2,300 entrants from 108 different countries worldwide. PLA was recognized as one of four finalists for providing outstanding solutions and services in Enterprise Mobility.
As a member of the Microsoft Partner Network, PLA is among the top 5 percent of Microsoft partners worldwide with several Gold Competency achievements and top 1 percent to achieve Gold Competencies in Cloud Platform and Cloud Productivity. PLA was also selected as one of seven partners in the U.S. to participate in Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) Red Carpet Program. Past award recognition from Microsoft has included 2014 Partner of the Year South Central Region, 2014 Award of Excellence for outstanding technical impact, 2013 SMB Growth Partner of the Year, 2011 Microsoft Central Region Managed Partner, and 2011 Central Region Small Business Excellence.
Rosemarie Pavilonis, vice president of Microsoft alliance at PLA stated, “We are honored that Microsoft has selected PLA to be a finalist for the Enterprise Mobility Partner of the Year award and we want to thank the Microsoft U.S. EMS Red Carpet and field teams for their on-going support. We are truly proud to be a part of the Microsoft community. Each and everyday, we work with customers to incorporate technology in their business to drive innovation, increase productivity and maximize business value. PLA constantly strives to achieve excellence through our technical expertise to deliver innovative Microsoft solutions and high customer satisfaction.”
The Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Award honors a partner that has displayed outstanding growth in deploying Enterprise Mobility Suite for customers. Although EMS has only been around for one year, they will have built a sustainable Enterprise Mobility business that offers all three components of EMS (Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium, Microsoft Intune, and Microsoft Azure Rights Management). The winning nomination will demonstrate innovation, competitive differentiation, and customer value that results in a sustainable business while showcasing the benefits of Microsoft's Enterprise Mobility offerings.
According to Rich Lilly, director of sales engineering at PLA, “The Enterprise Mobility landscape is changing at a rapid pace and we are committed and prepared to helping our customers tackle it head on. We’ve spent the last year growing our practice around Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility strategy and couldn’t be happier to see it flourish. We are honored to be recognized in the midst of so many outstanding Microsoft partners and look forward to growing this practice even further moving into Microsoft’s next fiscal year.”
“Microsoft’s success as a company is dependent upon our ecosystem of great partners, and PLA is a shining example of the kind of innovation our partners continue to drive year after year,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp. “We are pleased to recognize PLA for being selected as a finalist of the 2015 Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Partner of the Year award and for demonstrating excellence in providing value to our mutual customers.”
