Delivering solutions together was the theme of Citrix's Partner Accelerator Program in Sydney this month. The event saw 520 partners converge on the Hilton Hotel to participate in training and skills development on the vendor's end-to-end application delivery suite.
"Through the Partner Accelerator Program, we are able to share with them our 2008 goals, new programs, train them on the latest versions of our products and strengthen our relationship with the partners," Citrix Pacific channels director, Brian Higgins, said.
The Citrix Partner Accelerator Program will be held in six other cities across the Asia-Pacific region including Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, Seoul and Beijing.
The event followed on from Citrix's recent Solution Summit 2008 in Orlando, Florida. Twelve partners were presented with awards from the Asia-Pacifi c region, including several local channel faces. The 2007 Pacific Distributor of the Year went to itX, while Value Selling Partner of the Year went to Queensland-based Clariti. Dimension Data was awarded Systems Integration Partner of the Year.
