Business Partners give IBM high marks in Analytics and Storage in CRN’s 2017 Annual Report Card
Each year, channel publication CRN surveys thousands of solution providers, asking them to rank IT vendors on their product innovation, support and partnership in various categories. The highest ranking vendors are named as winners in CRN’s prestigious Annual Report Card (ARC).
This year, I’m proud to announce that IBM was named the overall winner in the Business Analytics category and the partnership sub-category winner in Enterprise Network Storage.
In Business Analytics, we were named best in class for Cognos Analytics, which enables thousands of enterprises worldwide to monitor, explore and share insights from their data. In the Enterprise Network Storage partnership sub-category, we were named the winner for IBM Storage and Software Defined Infrastructure, which provides a foundation for data analytics so that businesses can make lightning-fast decisions enabled by data-driven insights.
This honor underscores IBM’s commitment to helping businesses store, manage and transform massive amounts of data and turn it into greater business value. It is also a vote of confidence from you—our IBM Business Partners. These awards reinforce the importance of partnering around higher-value solutions in the Cognitive Era.
I want to extend my gratitude to all the partners across our channel who have championed our Cognos Analytics and IBM Storage and Software Defined Infrastructure offerings. Thank you for partnering with us to provide world-class experiences for our shared clients.
Industry awards and recognition from our partners are greatly appreciated, but their real value lies in the confidence they can inspire in business offices and data centers around the world. That’s why it’s very important for you to make the most of this recognition by leveraging these wins with your clients.
