Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, has been recognised at the Veritas 2015 Asia-Pacific and Japan partner awards as one of its top-performing partners and named global strategic partner of the year for the Asia-Pacific region.
Veritas said the company was honoured for its dedication to achieving strong business growth and positive contribution to its customers, the partner community, and Veritas.
Veritas Asia-Pacific and Japan channel leader, George Wong, said HDS was selected based on a set of criteria that includes overall performance in revenue growth, program adoption, excellence in technical innovation and the strategic implementation of Veritas’ information management solutions to enable customers to gain control and insight of their valuable information.
Wong claimed HDS is a strong partner of Veritas, both in Asia-Pacific and globally.
“Both companies have established a track record of working together to ensure customers can effectively manage, protect and govern their data across its entire lifecycle. Enterprises need to adopt a robust information management strategy to address their data growth challenges.
“The partnership between HDS and Veritas allows users to gain full insight into their data and store it accordingly based on the industry requirements and regulations, delivering unified data management strategy while reducing data management costs and complexity,” he said.
HDS global ISV alliances senior director, Tim Durant, said the success of their partnership gives the company a foundation to expand the products and solutions it resells, and explore ways to collaborate on new initiatives around Big Data and social innovation.
“The first 12 months of our work with Veritas was one of the most successful partnership launches we have had globally,” Durant said.
“This award recognises the impact partnerships between market leaders can have on customer outcomes. The combination of Veritas’ leading information management solutions and Hitachi Data Systems’ enterprise infrastructure offerings enables customers to have complete control over their data.”
Wong added that Veritas will continue to enable its partners to capitalise on the strength of its information management solution portfolio and delivering value to customers while achieving profitable growth.
“This award recognizes HDS’ commitment to scale with Veritas in leveraging joint assets in information availability and insight to not only help customers unlock the value of their data, but more importantly, harness the power of their information to achieve positive business outcomes,” Wong claimed.
