Celebrating Our Partners’ Outstanding Success and Innovation

VMware partners play a critical role in helping our customers achieve their goals – from enabling customers to be cloud-smart, to driving business transformation and delivering innovation and customer outcomes.  Not only are VMware partners attuned to customers’ specific technology needs, they are also indispensable in delivering VMware Cross-Cloud Services, an integrated portfolio of SaaS solutions to build, run, manage and secure all apps across clouds. VMware’s Cloud-Smart Ecosystem strategy enables partners to bring the benefits of Cross-Cloud Services to our customers.

To honor these annual accomplishments, this year our Partner Achievement Awards  recognize more than 30 ecosystem partners for their performance and impact over the past year in delivering demonstrable customer outcomes and social impact.

Partners were recognized for their achievements in delivering VMware technologies and solutions that helped customers move to modern, cloud centric architectures and transform their businesses. They were selected for their ability to help customers leverage VMware solutions in combination with next-gen technologies to lead the market. In one of the most complex business years on record, VMware partners were recognized for delivering high-value support and helping customers to quickly reimagine their businesses and reinvent their services to keep the economy moving forward. Partners also earned Achievement Awards for their ability to drive customer-focused engagements by building trusted, ongoing partner-customer relationships, as well as for positively impacting the world through the use of VMware technologies. Winners were announced via press release on April 6th, 2022. Stay tuned for information about next year’s application cycle, which will be open in early 2023.
