NetApp launches inaugural ANZ partner awards

NetApp has launched an Australia and New Zealand Partner Awards, as the vendor celebrates the 'cutting edge counsel and solutions' ANZ partners offer.

Neville James, NetApp director of channels and enablement, says he’s encouraging all NetApp partners to enter the awards.

“The partner ecosystem in Australia and New Zealand is recognised globally as delivering cutting edge counsel and solutions to organisations,” James says.

“And never more so that today as organisations wrestle with how to drive value from the incredible amounts of data – in motion and at rest – they have available to them.”

Entries for the inaugural awards, created to ‘acknowledge partners committed to the pursuit of excellence, innovation and quality’ are now open.

NetApp says the awards will showcase partners who significantly supported customers in their efforts to take their businesses to the next level through delivery of innovative cloud services, excellence in service delivery and enabling customers to realise cost efficiencies through best practice, increased turnover and improved productivity.

The awards will feature 10 categories including reseller of the year awards for both platinum and gold partners, with the winners announced at a gala dinner in Sydney in November.

Other categories include new partner of the year, service provider of the year, converged infrastructure excellence, marketing excellence and outstanding cloud initiative.

Individual excellence in partner organisations will also be recognised with three individual awards up for grab – technical excellence, sales excellence and alliance partner champion.

Full details and submission requirements can be found here. Entries close October 16, 2015.
