I’m always proud to share the success of our Canadian partners. And last night, their success was celebrated on home soil at Cisco Partner Summit in Montréal.
Partner Summit has always been special for me, and this year’s event is no exception. We welcomed more than 160 Canadian attendees to Montréal for our annual conference, where we discuss our partner strategy and the year ahead for our channel organization.
But by far, my favourite part of Partner Summit is the announcement of our Canadian award winners. This annual tradition has become one of the highlights of Partner Summit, and reaffirms my belief that Canada has one of the strongest partner ecosystems in the world.
The 2015 Canadian Partner Summit award winners are:
Americas Canadian Partner of the Year – Long View Systems
Architectural Excellence: Collaboration – Bell Canada
Architectural Excellence: Security – Softchoice
Architectural Excellence: Data Center – OnX
Architectural Excellence: Enterprise Networking – CDW
Solution Innovation Partner of the Year – IBM Canada
Cloud Partner of the Year – SunGard
Services Partner of the Year – Softchoice
Cisco Capital Partner of the Year – CompuCom
Emerging Partner of the Year – Mainland
These nine incredible companies are highly deserving of their awards, which recognize their technical abilities and expertise across Canada. I am especially happy to congratulate Mainland, who is a first-time award recipient.
Congratulations to all the Canadian award recipients this year!
