Emerging Technologies Awards
THE EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES AWARDS RECOGNISE PARTNERS PROVIDING CUSTOMER VALUE THROUGH NEW AND EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES.
rhipe is proud to sponsor the Emerging Technologies Awards Category of the 2018 Reseller News Innovation Awards. Being a leading platform for subscription-software licensing in Asia Pacific, we base our strategy on being partner first and rewarding those who innovate.
A decade ago, technologies such as biometrics, dashboarding, smart phones and even the simple notion of cloud – were emerging or new-to-market and garnered their fair share of enthusiasts as well as sceptics. Driven by the need to be faster, stronger, better than their competitors, Vendors, Manufacturers and Suppliers alike develop and build these new capabilities to win the privilege of solving their next customers' problem. Today however, these same technologies fail to turn heads as the ability to unlock a 5G smart device with an iris scan to stream your information down from your personal cloud becomes commonplace. But it is, the pioneers who take the gamble, poke, prod and stretch the limits of these technologies are the very people that this award category celebrates.
As these technologies have evolved, so to has the channel that brings these tools to life. Furthermore, there has been an endless blurring of definition between resellers, software vendors, service providers and many others – including distributors. That’s why at rhipe, we wanted the privilege to be associated with the emerging technology award given that our existence today as a channel aggregator was perpetuated by the emergence of this new channel landscape. We believe that our channel today will evolve even faster than what we’ve seen already and its our goal to stay at the forefront of this change to build and support the channel of tomorrow.
At rhipe, we are very excited to remain a driving force behind the channel which we’ve invested deeply in for almost a decade. The business innovators, thought leaders and game changers who have become part of the rhipe family are the same people who are now building the IT landscape and channel of tomorrow. It is their pursuit for excellence and unrelenting push to be “better” that makes this category both amazing and highly sought after. And also the very reason why we couldn’t think of any other award category that we would want to put our brand behind except that which would allow us to celebrate the heroes of the future today.
