London – 30 October 2020 – Logicalis, an international solutions and managed services provider, and one of five Cisco Global Gold Certified Partners, today announced that it has been honoured at the Cisco Partner Summit Digital, recognised as Global Marketing Partner of the Year alongside 20 additional awards.
Cisco announced the winners during its annual global partner conference, this year held digitally. The event invites its partners to participate on keynote presentations, strategy sessions, innovation talks and more over the course of two days.
As part of the Summit, Cisco awards channel partners across the world, who rise to business challenges, and recognises superior business practices, rewarding the best-in-class methodologies. Areas of consideration include innovative processes, architecture-led successes, strategic business outcome-focused programs, seizing new opportunities and sales approaches.
The Marketing Partner of the Year Award was presented to Logicalis due to its success in marketing the entire Cisco architecture and creating growth in key areas for the business. Specifically, its dedication to innovating the DevNet network, and focus on Hyperflex campaigns attributed to Cisco becoming one of the leading solutions providers for Logicalis’s customers.
Another huge achievement came when Logicalis was awarded second place in the Cisco Global Partner Innovation Challenge with a VPN biometrics solution created by its Latin American business. This challenge was open to any Cisco partner that can develop a new solution harnessing the power of Cisco open APIs across any part of their portfolio.
Additional awards received by the Logicalis Group during the 2020 Global Cisco Summit Awards include:
