The past twenty years have been a huge success for VMware. We have enabled our customers to provide some of the most efficient, cutting-edge technologies, to develop and grow within their industry, and to out-perform their competitors.
We are immensely grateful for this success; however, it is important to acknowledge that none of it would have been possible without our partners.
Across the world, the service providers, resellers, distributors, and other partners involved with our company are critical not only to our success, but to our customers’ too. Day in and day out, they collaborate with us to drive innovation and digital transformation into their customers’ journeys, and for that, we owe them our endless gratitude.
We have always tried to recognise the important work of our partners as much as possible. Each year we hold a Partner Recognition dinner, a night where we toast to the outstanding contributions of our local partner ecosystem and celebrate the success of each and every one the companies involved.
This year would have marked the 10th annual Partner Recognition dinner. Unfortunately, it is not be possible to gather together for the celebration as we usually would. However, this does not mean that we are any less grateful for the important work that our partners do.
While the dinner itself will not be going ahead, still very much intend to celebrate all of the hard work that has taken place throughout the year, and raise a toast to the partners that have contributed to VMware’s success and growth in FY20.
We’re kicking off with the celebrations with the official 2020 shortlist. We were completely overwhelmed with the quality and number of submissions across the categories, and though the decision was not an easy one, the final list is complete.
