'Transformative' industry work done by NEXTDC channel partners

The winners of NEXTDC’s Partner Awards have been announced, crediting the  achievements of partners in their nationwide channel program.

More than 300 companies are currently in the NEXTDC partner program, with over 50 new partners being welcomed within the last year.

Craig Scroggie, NEXTDC CEO, says the awards illustrate the power of their channel partnerships enabling organisations to transform their business and take advantage of new technologies.

“The pace of technological change is making a collaborative approach more important than ever, so organisations can integrate services and systems, and be able to adapt to a digital world,” he says.

“Increasingly, success in business depends on the ability to connect and engage with all organisations in an ecosystem for mutual benefit and support.”

onPlatinum ICT took out the new partner of the year award and CIO Shannon Overs says it’s a fantastic win for the group.

“The award recognises all the hard and collaborative work we and NEXTDC have done over the past year to bring our services across the nation,” she says.

PingCo took home the As-a-Service Partner of the Year award which Daniel Pearson, CEO, is ecstatic about.

“It shows that organisations can work on a global scale without the overhead necessary in the past decade,” says Pearson.

“As a relatively new company, five years strong, we’re working with some of the most elite platform providers in the world, which has only been possible through our partnership with NEXTDC.”

NextDC’s carrier partner of the year was Telstra, with CenturyLink taking home Enterprise Partner of the Year and Comvergence nabbing colocation partner. Steve Martin, head of channel for NEXTDC, says the quality of  nominations for this year's Partner Awards were outstanding, with many examples of successful projects delivering transformative solutions for Australian businesses.

“The success of our partners is our success, and the Awards are a great opportunity for us to reflect on the complimentary nature of our relationships, and the positive impact NEXTDC’s channel-first ethos is having on the Australian market.”
