Oracle has honoured its top performing partners across the world, with NTT Communications taking out the Australia and New Zealand Regional Partner of the Year award.
NTT Communications COO, Tarquin Bellinger, said the company has been partnering with Sun and Oracle since 1999, and continues to invest heavily in its Oracle capabilities, expertise and Oracle Cloud offering.
“The solutions we are implementing for customers have enabled us to eliminate barriers to innovation, implement the right design to meet business demand and to increase our focus on providing solutions that help with running a smooth IT operation,” he said.
“Today we have one of the largest team of infrastructure experts outside of Oracle itself and provide services to some of the largest Oracle customers in Australia.”
In the specialist Asia Pacific categories, Brisbane-based Rubicon Red was awarded Specialised Partner of the Year: Middleware.
“This Award is great recognition of our performance across the entire company specifically in terms of project delivery and our middleware expertise, our DevOps software and the ongoing investment in our talented team,” Rubicon Red director, James Hemmings said.
