Ingram IBM solutions architect, Oleg Kokotovic, has been honoured with the vendor's System Storage Portfolio Top Gun Award. The gong was presented during IBM's first Australian Top Gun field education training course last month.
The five-day course is aimed at enhancing sales skills around IBM's storage portfolio by delving into strategy, products and solutions as well as the storage market space and IBM's chief competitors in each market segment. The program uses a popular 'Top Gun' format involving themed classes, lectures, stand-up exercises, hands-on labs, exams and product demonstrations.
The course enabled Kokotovic to identify, validate, qualify, propose, and win IBM System Storage opportunities. He scored 10/10 on both daily exams and 45/50 on the final exam. He was one of seven Top Gun Award recipients throughout the course, which attracted 72 people.
"This is a fantastic achievement by one of my team. Oleg has been with the Solutions Group since January and is a valuable member of the IBM team," Ingram Solutions Group director, John Walters, said.
