Deloitte wins Nimble Storage ANZ Partner of the Year for third time as cloud technology delivers for customers
19 August 2016: As businesses and government seek to deliver more services to their customers in new and innovative ways, the growth of cloud technology in Australia is likely to eclipse the $3.2bn 2020 number predicted by Forrester last year, up from $732m in 2011.
This month’s installation of cloud-based Nimble Storage infrastructure for five Victorian councils by Deloitte Consulting is just one example of the better performance, simpler operations and management processes, and in particular greater capacity and scale, that cloud-based solutions can provide, Deloitte Consulting Cloud and Infrastructure partner Josh Rubens said.
He explained: “The insights derived from the enormous amount of data that needs to be stored, cleansed and sorted to meet even the minimum needs of today’s demanding customers demand new ways of organising the technology infrastructure stacks.
“Data centre modernisation initiatives are becoming the first part of the transformation journey and in this case Nimble Storage played a key part."
Nimble Storage - the Predictive Flash vendor – announced Deloitte as its Partner of the Year for the third year out of four at its Partner Summit Awards ceremony, attended by 140 businesses.
“We are thrilled to award Deloitte as the Nimble Storage Partner of the Year in 2016. We are proud of our long standing relationship and excited to continue to deliver Predictive Flash solutions that support enterprises in implementing effective cloud strategies for the future,” said Theo Hourmouzis, Nimble Storage Director of Channels.
Kevin Russo, Technology Consulting partner at Deloitte, said: “We are delighted to be singled out by Nimble Storage as its Partner of the Year. Our work in helping clients chose the best business driven technology solutions is only as good as the quality of local and global cloud service providers and technology vendors.
“When we build strategic partnerships with the world’s best, such as Nimble Storage, Amazon, HP, IBM and Citrix, to name a few, we can help our clients design, build and manage the best next gen cloud-based platforms, so they in turn can offer best of breed services to their customers.
“It’s a win:win all round.”
