VMware has announced the winners of the VMware 2021 Partner Achievement Awards to honour select partners for extraordinary achievements aligned to key business priorities.
The annual VMware Partner Achievement Awards celebrate the accomplishments of VMware’s partners, and the 2021 winners exemplify the best of the best. After an unprecedented year, VMware recognizes the significant value that partners bring to VMware customers. This year’s awards honor regional and global winners in the following categories: Partner Digital Transformation, Partner Innovation, Partner Lifecycle Services, Partner Value, and Partner Social Impact.
In addition, VMware also recognized three partners as the sole winners across the globe for the following award categories: TeraSky was named the 2021 VMware Partner of the Year for overall excellence in consistently delivering business impact, value and innovation to its customer base; CDW received the Partner Industry Award for its deep domain expertise in the United States’ healthcare and State, Local and Education (SLED) industries; and CTC was selected as the Partner Collaboration Award winner for its commitment to working together with other partners to deliver customers the highest
level of innovation.
“Our customers are on a continuous journey of business and digital transformation, which has become more urgent and complex in the wake of recent global disruptions. As trusted advisors, our partners are more important than ever, and VMware is committed to working with them to accelerate customer transformation and unleash the power of connected ecosystems to create customer-for-life value,” said Sandy Hogan, senior vice president, Worldwide Partner and Commercial Organization, VMware. “It’s inspirational to see partners innovating, expanding their capabilities, and growing their business with us to deliver exceptional customer success. These awards demonstrate the value our partners are delivering and their impact across the entire customer lifecycle.”
The VMware Partner Achievement Awards program was conducted in partnership with technology research firm IDC, which reviewed and evaluated award submissions against the criteria for each category. Partners were recognized for their achievements in delivering VMware technologies and solutions that helped customers move to modern, cloud centric architectures and transform their businesses. They were lauded for their ability to help customers leverage VMware solutions in combination with next-gen technologies to lead the industry.
In one of the most complex business years on record, VMware partners were recognized for delivering high-value support and helping customers to quickly reimagine their businesses and reinvent their services to keep the economy moving forward. Partners also earned Achievement Awards for their ability to drive customer-focused engagements by building trusted, ongoing partner-customer relationships, as well as for positively impacting the world through the use of VMware technologies.
“The 2021 VMware Partner Achievement Awards honor partners delivering services excellence and expertise throughout the entire customer lifecycle,” said Susan Nash, senior vice president, Strategic Corporate Alliances, VMware. “We are proud of the impact our partners are delivering for customers, particularly in this challenging business environment, as they help customers transform their businesses and take advantage of the significant benefits that VMware technology has to offer.”
