Reseller News unveils new start-up category, opens award nominations

Changing face of the channel prompts new partner categories

Nominations are now open for the 2017 Reseller News ICT Industry Awards, with the unveiling of a new start-up category highlighting the expanding channel in New Zealand.

Entering its third year, the awards - set for 11 October at The Langham in Auckland - will applaud vendors, distributors and reseller partners for their success in the previous 12 months, while also acknowledging outstanding individuals and their achievements.

In recognition of the changing ecosystem within the channel, 2017 will see the launch of a new Start-up category, acknowledging the emerging businesses disrupting the status quo across the market.

Specifically, the new-look category will honour expertise across four awards - Start-up Specialist; Start-up Customer Win; Start-up Entrepreneur and Technology Start-Up.

Building on the success of 2016, the awards will honour the channel across nine categories, including; Start-up; Partner; Homegrown; Entrepreneurship; Vendor; Distributor; Community; Channel Choice and Hall of Fame.

In total, over 30 awards make up this year’s honours list, acknowledging the increased levels of innovation across New Zealand.

Nominations close on Tuesday 8 August, with selection criteria provided with each award to facilitate submissions.

Companies and individuals can self-nominate across seven categories, with an esteemed judging panel of over 50 industry figures basing scores on the quality of submission, identifying the strengths and progress of the company or individual over the past 12 months.

To nominate, visit the 2017 Reseller News ICT Industry Awards nominations page and click on the specific award link which will direct you to the online questions.

Each category has four to six questions as part of the award criteria - please make sure you specifically answer the criteria, but also limit your responses to the 200 maximum word count set per question.

We strongly recommend companies only self-nominate to ensure the best chance of success with our experienced judging panel and please note that we only accept one nomination submission per individual or company for every award. Nominations across multiple awards and categories are allowed.

Also, make sure you enter your name, company name and email address as part of the nomination.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
