Kiwi firm takes top honours at Hitachi Data Systems ANZ Partner Awards

"We are delighted to recognise the exceptional work of these partners over the past 12 months."

Hitachi Data Systems Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, has today named Revera, a New Zealand supplier of utility computing infrastructure, as Partner of the Year in its inaugural Partner Awards.

The Awards coincide with the Hitachi Data Systems annual partner conference, held at The Sheraton, Noosa, and attended by representatives from across the channel community.

"We are delighted to recognise the exceptional work of these partners over the past 12 months," says Neil Evans, vice president and country manager, Hitachi Data Systems Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands.

"As data management becomes increasingly complex, partnerships between vendors and resellers must be as effective as possible to deliver true value for the end user.

"HDS recognises the power of the channel community as we continue to innovate to solve our customers' business challenges and look forward to expanding our awards program in years to come."

Recognising the company's top performing partners over the past year, the Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) Partner Awards acknowledges partners who demonstrated significant revenue growth and a commitment to delivering innovative storage solutions in collaboration with HDS.

The 4 category winners highlight the breadth of the HDS partner community and are:

Partner of the Year: Revera

New Partner of the Year: R1i

"Following last year's partner conference, HDS reinvigorated its commitment to growing its relationships with the channel in Australia and New Zealand, which included the building on our Partner Awards program," adds Phillip Teague, director, industry and alliance solutions, Australia and New Zealand.

"In this time, we have seen growth of about 30 per cent.

"We would like to congratulate this year's recipients and thank them for their ongoing dedication to delivering innovative and competitive infrastructure and services that empower businesses to make better use of their data."

The HDS Partner Awards winners are part of the Hitachi TrueNorth Partner Program, which was designed to help partners integrate infrastructure, content and information with vertical industry applications to turn customer data into valuable business knowledge.

It supports them to grow their business, market reach and profitability through a number of training programs and tools.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
