As one of Germany’s leading systems integrators, Bechtle is an important sales and solutions partner for NetApp. The EMEA Cloud Partner of the Year award recognises Bechtle’s extraordinary performance throughout the financial year as well as its innovativeness and outstanding service quality. “Our data fabric strategy and our solutions for cloud-connected flash and hybrid cloud infrastructures are key USPs. But it is our partners who convert technology into innovation and who support our joint customers in developing and introducing new cloud-based business models. The awards given out today celebrate this. Congratulations to Bechtle,” says Kristian Kerr, Vice President Partners & Pathways EMEA for NetApp.
With its 300 partners attending the Madrid event, NetApp underscored the importance of AI, DevOps, cloud computing and enterprise applications. According to NetApp CEO George Kurian, cloud computing in particular is transforming IT on all fronts, exhibiting enormous growth. This demonstrates the high honour that receiving the award bestows upon Bechtle.
“We are very pleased to have been named NetApp’s EMEA Cloud Partner of the Year. For us, it is both a distinction and motivation. NetApp focuses strongly on cloud computing—as does Bechtle—and we will work together even more closely in future,” emphasises Daniel Seybold, Senior VIPM NetApp for Bechtle.
