EMC Asia-Pacific and Japan president, David Webster, announced the winners. He said the awards recognise the outstanding performance of its partners in A/NZ.
“It’s exciting to see the innovative projects and solutions they have implemented for their customers last year. On behalf of EMC, I want to thank our network of partners for a great 2015 and we’re looking forward to continuing to work together to transform and grow our mutual businesses this year,” he said.
With a host of EMC executives in attendance, the evening also saw partners and customers to discuss industry developments and business trends for the year ahead.
“In 2016, EMC and its partners will continue to help customers to modernise, automate and transform their datacentres to enable future growth.
“As all flash arrays become a main stream technology, we will see disruption of the datacentre as we know it. We will continue to work together to ensure our joint customers are the disrupters, not the disrupted,” Webster added.
