London, United Kingdom: 11 May 2017 - Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) today announced it was recognised as both the 2017 Dell EMC Global Alliances Marketing Partner of the Year and the Global Alliances Industry Partner of the Year. The awards were presented at the Dell EMC Global Partner Summit in Las Vegas, recognising Sungard AS for achieving extraordinary results and for its commitment to Dell EMC.

The Global Alliances Marketing Partner of the Year Award honors Sungard AS for excellence in execution on unique, industry-oriented and integrated Marketing and Sales Enablement campaigns with Dell EMC, while the Global Alliances Industry Partner of the Year recognises Sungard AS for significant achievements as a strategic Dell EMC partner.

“These honours underscore our dedication to providing customers with continuous access and protection for mission-critical data,” said Carmen Sorice, Senior Vice President, Global Channel Sales & Programs, Sungard AS. “Users expect access to information on any device, anytime and anywhere. Our goal in working with Dell EMC is to give customers the access to applications and data they need, while ensuring their data is protected at all times, wherever it resides.”

Sungard AS and Dell EMC collaborate to combine Sungard AS Managed Cloud Services, Managed Recovery Services, and Managed Services with Dell EMC Corporation's cloud and infrastructure solutions. Together, they provide comprehensive services to support their customers’ IT environments, ensuring high availability, ease of management, and business continuity for mission-critical applications and business operations.

“We congratulate Sungard Availability Services on receiving Dell EMC’s Global Alliances Marketing Partner of the Year Award and Global Alliances Industry Partner of the Year Award, both of which recognise partners that have exhibited an exemplary commitment to Dell EMC, and have placed a true focus on bringing enhanced value to our mutual customers,” said Jay Snyder, Senior Vice President, Global Alliances, Service Providers and Industries. “Alliance partners play a vital role in the Dell EMC Go to Market (GTM) and are critical in helping enable us to transform our customers on their digital transformation agenda.”

Partners for more than 15 years, Sungard AS and Dell EMC offer a broad portfolio of third-party validated and industry-certified solutions, powered by Dell EMC technology, for a bimodal world. This includes enterprise-class cloud services that provide the flexibility, scalability, and resiliency businesses need to support both traditional and cloud-native workloads and accelerate digital strategies.

With Sungard AS and Dell EMC, customers also have a single provider for multiple services across production and recovery systems, freeing their IT staff from juggling multiple vendors or taking on more work themselves. Further, by offloading the management of these environments to Sungard AS, organisations can focus on driving business outcomes versus managing their IT infrastructure.
