Deloitte Consulting has taken out Nimble Storage’s ANZ partner of the year at its partner conference.
More than 100 partners from 50 different companies attended the event, and shared two days of rich sales and technical content, finishing up with an awards evening.
Partners were awarded based on a number of factors, including customer growth, revenue growth, certification, marketing success, overall engagement and support. Josh Rubens, partner cloud & infrastructure solutions at Deloitte Consulting, says the company is very proud to be recognised as Nimble’s ANZ partner of the year.
“Nimble Storage is a key strategic vendor for Deloitte and we see them as a critical part of a customer’s data centre modernisation journey on their path to a cloud based architecture.”
Origin IT nabbed New Zealand partner of the year, with Blue Central picking up the Northern Australia region partner of year spot.
Michael Russell, CEO at Origin IT, says the award reflects the commitment both organisations have made towards each other.
“The Nimble platform combining flash storage and predictive analytics has provided our team with a world-class solution,” he says.
“We look forward to continuing to develop our capability and investment in Nimble.”
Last November, Nimble Storage increased its distribution network and partners’ access to its products by appointing a second distributor, Dicker Data, to compliment NextGen Distribution.
Theo Hourmouzis, director of Channel Sales at Nimble Storage for Asia Pacific, says the company honours partners from around ANZ who have helped to support and grow Nimble.
“In the last 12 months our Australian business has continued to deliver triple digit growth year over year,” he says.
“At the same time, we have continued our success with rapid customer acquisition while driving repeat business and maintaining high customer satisfaction,” explains Hourmouzis.
“In the year ahead, we very much look forward to maintaining a 100 percent channel business and introducing new programmes to support the growth of our Australian and New Zealand partners.”
