Two Australian companies win big at ALE partner awards

14 Feb 2018

Two Australian companies, DXC Connect and Nexon Asia-Pacific, won key awards at the ALE (Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise) partner awards.

ALE awarded its partners at Connex APAC, its annual Asia-Pacific business partner, sales and analyst conference held in Bali, Indonesia.

DXC Connect was awarded APAC Healthcare partner of the year, one of the key verticals for Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise in the region and across the world.

“Connex18 was a great opportunity to meet the ALE senior leaders and other ALE partners from around the region, share ideas and most importantly learn,” DXC Connect technical services manager Matthew Edwards says.

“DXC Connect is a business that is passionate about accelerating digital transformation in Australia, and ALE’s vision and strategy mean it is a great vendor to help us drive this change, particularly in verticals such as Healthcare and Government. DXC Connect is honoured to receive the award for APAC Healthcare partner of the year and look forward to continued partnership with ALE in 2018 and beyond.”

Nexon Asia-Pacific took home APAC Service Partner of the year following a successful year, with a number of key projects leveraging the entire Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise solution set.

ALE ANZ channel head Chris Downes says, “Connex 18 is an opportunity to align with our partners on the latest developments in secure high-performance networking, communications and cloud platforms.

“We have an experienced and dynamic partner network in here in Australia, and together we can address specific industry needs which help customers meet the challenges of the ever-evolving digital workplace. Australians are renowned for punching above their weight, and we’re pleased to have two partners acknowledged at these prestigious awards.

“Nexon and DXC are fantastic examples of partners that are always looking for new ways to generate growth and deliver greater value for customers. We are looking forward to continuing to celebrate success with our entire partner community in 2018 and beyond.”

At the event, ALE also outlined its “Vision 2020” for the coming years via presentations, interactive sessions, workshops and analyst discussions, while exploring the latest innovations in the ALE technology and solutions portfolios.
