Networking vendor Aruba, part of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, has named Sydney network integrator Matrix CNI as its ANZ partner of the year at the vendor’s 2016 Channel Partner Awards during its Atmosphere ANZ Conference on the Gold Coast.
The other winners included WA IT consultant Vizstone, which was named digital workspace solution partner of the year, Victorian MSP Honeylight, claiming the education partner of the year title, and east-coast wifi specialists Netwireless, which took home the retail partner of the year award.
Dimension Data was Aruba's healthcare partner of the year, while NSW-based Accucom received the technical excellence award and Brisbane-headquartered Data#3 received the best partner initiative award.
David Elliot, channel sales director of Aruba ANZ, said it was a thrill to celebrate the company’s partner ecosystem.
“Innovation is at the heart of our business and we are fortunate to have customers that recognise this. Working with Aruba, an industry leader in wired and wireless technology, ensures that together we are always at the forefront of technology and innovation.”
Aruba’s Elliot said the vendor had seen a year of “phenomenal growth and development” and was observing a positive response from its partner community.
