24 Nov 2016

Revera, Perfekt and CSC Australia are among the winners at this year’s Hitachi Data Systems ANZ Partner Awards, held last night.

Perfekt, which was recently elevated to Hitachi TrueNorth Platinum Partner status, took out the Partner of the Year award, with HDS singling out the company’s ability to develop deeper engagement in existing accounts and its ‘impressive’ track record of joint customer acquisition in a number of verticals. Those verticals include state and local government, finance, health, distribution, education, utilities and gaming.

Brisbane managed IT, cloud and consulting services provider SureBridge IT took out Regional Partner of the Year.

The company has seen more than 15% growth in revenue in the past year as a direct result of adding Powered by Hitachi Data Systems XaaS cloud offerings to its existing services portfolio.

New Zealand’s Revera was named Solution Partner of the Year on the back of its continuous investment in services expansion and development of innovative new solutions offerings to support rapidly changing customer requirements, HDS says.

Global System Integrator Partner of the Year went to CSC Australia for its commitment to collaborating with HDS to help clients with cloud-enabled digital transformation.

Meanwhile Western Australia’s Market Creations was recognised for its work building a partnership with HDS, winning the New Partner of the Year.

Nathan McGregor, Hitachi Data Systems Australia and New Zealand, congratulated all the winners of their awards, saying the partners were trusted partners and experts who could ease enterprise cloud deployment, deliver cost effective as-a-service offerings and support corporate mobility initiatives as organisations across Australia and New Zealand embrace digital transformation.

Phil Teague, HSD Australia and New Zealand industry and alliances solutions director, says: “With go-to-market knowledge, specialised services and vertical expertise, our partners are more important than ever in delivering greater value to clients as they transform in this digital economy.”
