Celebrating Our Partners’ Outstanding Success and Innovation

VMware partners play a critical role in helping our customers realize what’s possible – from driving business transformation, to delivering innovation and other valuable outcomes. To honor these accomplishments every year, the VMware Partner Achievement Awards recognize select partners who have demonstrated exceptional results with the use of VMware products and solutions.

Partners may nominate themselves and apply directly for one or more of this year’s five award categories (see detailed descriptions below):

 

  • Partner Digital Transformation Award
  • Partner Innovation Award
  • Partner Lifecycle Services Award
  • Partner Value Award
  • Partner Social Impact Award

 

By submitting an application for one of these categories above, partners may be considered for additional recognition opportunities, including:

 

  • Partner of the Year Award
  • Partner Industry Award
  • Partner Collaboration Award

 

In partnership with IDC, award submissions will be reviewed and selected against the criteria outlined in the application form for each award category. Winners will be announced at VMware EMPOWER Online in May 2021.

All nominations must be submitted by 11:59 PM (PT), March 3, 2021.
