Paris, France: June 20, 2016
Veeam® Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™, today announced that it has received a GOLD EMEA Rising Star award from the Global Technology Distribution Council (GTDC). The Rising Star Awards recognize technology companies with exceptional sales growth through European distributors over the past year. This year’s awards were presented during an evening dinner event at the 2016 GTDC Summit EMEA conference at the Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin.
Veeam was among only 15 overall winners chosen from hundreds of manufacturers and publishers who rely on distributors to meet the product and service requirements of technology solution providers in the EMEA region. Gold, Silver and Bronze Rising Star Award winners were selected in four revenue categories and overall software business, respectively, with each category winner based on sales growth over the past year, as tracked by the CONTEXT SalesWatch Distribution Panel.
“We’ve enjoyed great success in the ‘Rising Star’ award in the past – it’s an honour for us – and to win it again is testament to Veeam’s hard work, impressive growth and foresight” said Gilles Pommier, VP Channel & Cloud EMEA of Veeam Software. “Our business depends on the channel and the excellent work of our partner community. Like Veeam, they have acknowledged the need for the Always-On Enterprise™, and recognise that products such as Veeam Availability Suite™ v9 can help their customers make this a reality.”
Rising Star Awards Methodology
To be eligible for a Rising Star award, vendors must have sold corresponding products through GTDC members for at least one year. Selections for Gold, Silver and Bronze winners in each revenue category are based on CONTEXT SalesWatch data from April 2015 – March 2016.
“This year’s winners span a broad range of product categories – our most diverse yet -- representing today’s most progressive and innovative market segments,” commented Tim Curran, GTDC CEO. “It’s impressive to see so many winners focused on the hottest trends, from cloud, mobility and Big Data to security, virtualization and hyper-converged infrastructure, for example. The growth of these companies showcases the value and impact of distribution partnerships throughout the EMEA region.”
