Neckarsulm, 20 November 2018 – As one of Cisco’s strongest German partners, Bechtle received awards in two categories this year: Cloud Partner of the Year Germany and Partner of the Year Architectural Excellence Enterprise Networks Germany. The awards were presented on 13 November at the Cisco Partner Summit 2018 in Las Vegas. These awards honour outstanding achievements, strength in innovation and commitment to the implementation of extraordinary customer projects.
Cloud Partner of the Year.
Over the past year, the collaboration between Cisco and Bechtle on cloud services has grown considerably. In March 2018, Bechtle became the first systems integrator to offer the Cisco Webex Teams collaboration software service via a fully-automated cloud marketplace. Customers can procure cloud services from Cisco as easily as if they were purchasing consumer products, using Bechtle’s cloud platform, which the company uses to satisfy the growing demand for powerful multi-cloud solutions.
This award is not just a sign of our strong partnership with Cisco, it also underlines that we can provide our customers with considerable added-value in procuring and integrating cloud services through our platform,” says Michael Guschlbauer, Bechtle AG’s COO for IT Systems Integration & Managed Services.
Architectural Excellence Enterprise Networks Partner of the Year.
For Cisco, Germany remains one of the strongest growing markets worldwide. As the largest systems integrator in Germany, Bechtle plays an important role as sales and solutions partner. The Architectural Excellence Enterprise Networks Partner of the Year award not only recognised Bechtle’s technological expertise in Cisco’s core architecture, but also its exceptional commitment to innovation in Cisco’s Software Defined Networking strategy.
The Cisco Partner Summit Awards recognise the most productive partners in certain technologies and segments. The winners are decided by a jury consisting of members of the global Cisco Partner Organisation plus local Cisco management.
