Nutanix announces partner award winners

21 Sep 2020

Nutanix announces its Partner Award winners at a recent virtual version of its annual partner conference.

 Softbank C&S Japan took home the APAC Distributor of the Year award and Wipro was awarded Global System Integrator of year. 

A full list of categories and winners can be found below.

“While this year certainly looked different than years past, we still delivered everything our partners have come to expect from the event – a partner exclusive keynote, breakout sessions, partner recognition, and a preview of what the future of partnering with Nutanix looks like,” a statement from the company says.

The lines between traditional routes to market are blurring due to the cloud, subscription, and future-of-work transitions occurring in business today. 

Recently, the company simplified its disparate channel, distributor, technology alliance, service provider, and systems integrator programmes into one programme architecture called Elevate, based on competencies, and enabling and rewarding partners who deliver successful business outcomes through their enhanced skills and Nutanix expertise. 

Nutanix’s statement says this is to allow partners to deliver software sales as well as build consultative and managed services under one programme. 

A redesigned Partner Portal was also part of this update to the programme, consolidating the tools, data, enablement resources, and marketing programmes that partners need into one location, with one login. 

“Partners are facing massive change and uncertainty about the future. Our goal at Nutanix is to help our partners harness these challenges into a strategy for their future business. I’m confident that Elevate and the evolution of our partner program sets the foundation for success today and tomorrow,” the statement says.
