Datacom NZ targets further success following EMC Partner Awards domination

“For us the challenge is unending as we add new services and craft our own expertise around EMC's evolving products."

New Zealand ICT firm Datacom has started awards season with a bang, taking out three top honours at the 2014 EMC Business Partner Program Awards in Sydney this week.

With nearly 50 years’ experience in technology, the Kiwi owned business has grown to be one of Asia Pacific’s leading locally-owned IT-based service providers, operating across New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia and the Philippines.

In taking down over 250 channel partners across the Australia and New Zealand region, the blossoming company left the evening as the A/NZ Emerging Service Provider of the Year, A/NZ Core Technology Partner of the Year and not forgetting, the NZ Premier Partner of the Year.

"We are delighted with this recognition by EMC, it's fantastic the take out three categories,” says Mark Muru, Director, Datacom in Wellington.

Speaking to Reseller News after returning to New Zealand following the awards ceremony, Muru, a 15 year Datacom veteran, says the company’s ongoing success is testament to its approach to business, both at home and across the Tasman.

“We’ve put in a lot of work together to create a unique engagement model between our organisations, this has resulted in Datacom being able to pass on the benefits of this work and new thinking to our clients across Australia and New Zealand," he adds.

In working with a tech giant which builds information infrastructures and virtual infrastructures across the world, Datacom and EMC work together to help businesses large and small enable operations through IT and move to the cloud.

“EMC has a leading position in the storage solutions market and we provide high performance, cost effective storage solutions to government agencies through our Datacom Cloud Services for Government (DCSG), to enterprise and commercial clients through Datacom Cloud Services (DCS) and directly to clients for dedicated storage solutions and private clouds,” he adds.

“For us the challenge is unending as we add new services and craft our own expertise around EMC's evolving products.

“The progress and the resulting scale we achieve has seen us in a position of being able to pass on significant cost reductions to our clients on an ongoing basis.”

In starting 2015 with a bang on the awards front, Datacom will be hoping for similar success on March 19, at the 2015 Microsoft New Zealand Partner Awards in Auckland.
