K2®, a division of SourceCode Technology Holdings, Inc., has been selected as a finalist for the Microsoft Partner of the Year award in “Custom Development Solutions, Smart Client Development.”

“Our partnership with Microsoft is strong and it continues to grow,” said K2’s Adriaan Van Wyk, CEO. “K2 is involved in numerous early-adopter programs within Microsoft, we are committed to ensuring our products leverage the next-generation of Microsoft products and technologies, and we spend a significant amount of research and development to maximize customer and partner investments in their K2-based solutions.

“It’s an honor to be named a finalist for this award.”’

The K2 software platform is for building process-driven applications that improve business efficiency. K2 applications are flexible and scalable and can span employees, departments, organizations and line-of-business systems. Then when business needs shift, modifying those applications is simple.

K2 is built on .NET and leverages existing investments in Microsoft software infrastructure — Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, InfoPath, Visio, Visual Studio, Office, Exchange, BizTalk and Office Communications Server.

Partner of the Year awards will be presented in a number of categories, with winners chosen from a pool of more than 2,000 entrants worldwide.

The “Custom Development Solutions, Smart Client Development” Partner of the Year award recognizes exceptional, innovative partners that focus on the development of customized smart client solutions built on Microsoft technologies leveraging the Microsoft Visual Studio family of development tools.

This award recognizes partners that are serving unique customer needs by developing on and with Microsoft technologies and solutions in the area of smart client development.

“Partners are critical to delivering rich business solutions and innovative excellence to customers,” said Allison Watson, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft. “Congratulations to the 2008 Partner Award winners who have each demonstrated innovation beyond measure and an unswerving commitment to delivering the highest levels of customer satisfaction.
