New Zealand’s Revera has taken top honours as Hitachi Data Systems ANZ Partner of the Year, snaffling the award from the Australian contenders.
The Kiwi utility computing infrastructure provider’s win highlights its ‘significant revenue growth and commitment to delivering innovative storage solutions in collaboration with HDS’.
Neil Evans, HDS vice president and country manager, Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands, says as data management becomes increasingly complex, partnerships between vendors and resellers must be as effective as possible to deliver true value for the end user.
“HDS recognizes the power of the channel community as we continue to innovate to solve our customers’ business challenges and look forward to expanding our awards programme in years to come.”
The inaugural ANZ awards we held alongside the company’s annual partner conference.
Australian company R1i was named new partner of the year, with Perfekt named solution partner of the year and Surebridge claiming regional partner of the year.
Philip Teague, HDS director, industry and alliance solutions for Australia and New Zealand, says following last year’s partner conference, the vendor ‘reinvigorated’ its commitment to growing its relationships with the ANZ channel, which included building on its Partner Awards programme.
“In this time we have seen growth of about 30%,” he adds.
