NetApp has announced a call for entries to its inaugural Australia and New Zealand Partner Awards, created to acknowledge partners committed to the pursuit of excellence, innovation and quality and will launch with 10 award categories.
In revealing the winners at gala dinner in Sydney on November 12, 2015, Neville James, NetApp’s Director of Channels & Enablement encourages all NetApp partners to enter the awards.
“The partner ecosystem in Australia and New Zealand is recognised globally as delivering cutting edge counsel and solutions to organisations,” James says.
“And never more so than today as organisations wrestle with how to drive value from the incredible amounts of data (in motion and at rest) they have available to them.”
James says the awards are designed to showcase partners who significantly supported customers in their efforts to take their businesses to the next level through delivery of innovative cloud services, excellence in service delivery and enabling customers to realise cost efficiencies through best practice, increased turnover and improved productivity.
NetApp also recognises individual excellence in partner organisations through several individual awards.
Criteria vary per category but all include a focus on new business activity, deployment quality and customer experience.
Details of the categories and submission requirements can be found at the NetApp Partner Awards microsite and entries must be received by 5pm on October 16, 2015.
