Double glory as Data#3 takes out VMware and Employer of Choice awards

06 Jun 2017

Data#3 is celebrating double glory, with the business technology solutions provider winning both a regional VMware partner innovation award and a National Employer of Choice award.

The VMware award – the NSX APJ VMware Partner Innovation Award – came at last week’s VMware Partner Leadership Summit in California.

Data#3 is a VMware premier solutions provider partner, the highest partner status in Australia.

Richard Dornhart, Data#3 national practice manager for security, says the award reflect’s Data#3’s investment in the NSX network virtualisation technology.

“NSX helps our customers to be agile and gain efficiencies within their software define data centres,” Dornhart says.

“It decouples security from the physical hardware, allowing the development of granular security policies for individual workloads.

“This ultimately provides a more secure environment and removes much of the management overhead for already stretched IT teams, allowing them to focus on core business and innovation projects.”

The VMware win came hard on the heels of news that Data#3 had been named one of Australia’s best large companies by Human Resources Director magazine, for the second year in a row.

Data#3 says it finished strongly in a number of sub-categories, including reward and recognition and health and wellbeing.

Laurence Baynham, Data#3 chief executive officer and managing director, says a continued focus and investment in people is fundamental in making the company ‘a great place to work’.

“Our company vision is centred on harnessing the power of people and technology for a better future, and as such, the success of our people paves the way for our success,” Baynham says.

Tash Macknish, Data#3 national manager of organisational development and human resources, says to be awarded an Employer of Choice award two years in a row demonstrates the hard work, commitment and engagement of the company’s team, especially in a time of digital disruption.

“Staff that achieve wellbeing at work are likely to be more creative, loyal and productive,” Macknish says.

“Our employees are fundamental to our success and we are always aware of trying to balance their needs with the needs of the business. We have a focus on continued improvement and we regularly seek feedback from our people, partners, customers and industry leaders and use this to inform our strategic plan.”
