ASX-listed integrator, Empired (ASX:EPD), has risen the NetApp partner ranks to become an Authorised Professional Service Partner in the storage vendor’s partner program.
In a statement, Empired strategic growth general manager, Brendon Jarvis, said the decision to add to its NetApp Platinum Partner status was driven by a desire to offer a “true value-add in the form of professional services”.
The Authorised Professional Service Partner certification lets the Western Australia-based Empired sell and deliver its own brand of services for NetApp solutions while also gaining access to the vendor’s Global Services team’s tools, templates and methodologies.
Earlier this year, Empired announced positive quarterly results, despite the slowing economy.
At the time, Empired managing director, Russell Baskerville, said the managed services part of the business was the encouraging growth area.
