Microsoft Congratulates … Itself!
I’m not knocking Avanade’s work. But Microsoft honoring Avanade is like IBM naming IBM Global Services its enterprise partner of the year. After all, Microsoft and Accenture formed Avanade in 2000 as a joint venture. The co-founders continue to give Avanade financial support, and eight of Avanade’s top 10 executives are from Microsoft or Accenture.
What’s next? Avanade honoring Microsoft as its top software partner?
