Dimension Data Australia took out two awards, winning Partner of the Year for both A/NZ and APAC.

Ingram Micro Australia also took out two of the top spots after receiving Distributor of the Year for A/NZ and APAC.

Growth Partner of the Year in A/NZ went to DXC, with Beijing-based Polystor Technology receiving the APAC award.
