Logicalis and Westcon, two of Datatec's global subsidiaries, have been recognised for outstanding achievement by Cisco at the recent Partner Summit held in New Orleans.
Cisco Partner Summit global awards are designed to recognise the exemplary channel partners who demonstrate best-in-class business practices and serve as a model to the industry.
The awards are presented at three levels: regional, theatre and global. Areas of consideration include innovative practices, applications successes, unique programs, problem-solving and sales approaches. All winners are selected by a group of Cisco Worldwide Channels and regional theatre executives.
Logicalis received two Cisco Partner Summit global awards for Enterprise Partner of the Year (Brazil), and Architectural Excellence Partner of the Year (UK), awarded in recognition of its cloud computing services. Logicalis also received 13 theatre, regional and country awards across Latin America, Europe, the United States and Asia Pacific.
Comstor, a Cisco-dedicated business unit of Westcon Group, won the Global Distribution Partner of the Year award. In addition, Comstor received global recognition for the company's Distribution Accelerated Partner Programme and was the recipient of 15 theatre, geography and country-specific awards.
Jens Montanana, CEO of Datatec, comments: "We are very proud to be recognised by Cisco as being leaders in our respective industry sectors. The awards are recognition of our continued success with and investment in Cisco's technology portfolio worldwide."
