Congratulations to our 2018 IBM Business Partner Award Winners
This week, at PartnerWorld at Think, more than 70 IBM Business Partners were recognized for their outstanding business solutions. These partners are using technology from across the IBM portfolio to do amazing work for our mutual clients, and we took notice.
This evening, I had the honor of awarding 17 Business Partner firms with an IBM Beacon Award. Each year, the IBM Beacon Awards program recognizes IBM Business Partners delivering exceptional solutions to drive business value and transform the way clients and industries operate, and this year I am proud to recognize the work of 17 innovative Business Partner firms. With AI and Cloud-enabled solutions, our Business Partners are “putting smart to work” around the globe.
One of these winners, Mark III Systems, took home the most prestigious Beacon Award—the Beacon Laureate. Mark III Systems earned this honor for its consistent exemplary achievement in the storage category year over year.
Mark III Systems is a leading enterprise IT solutions provider with a long, rich history of providing “full stack” technology solutions with IT infrastructure, software, services, cloud, analytics, AI, and digital transformation to a diverse range of enterprise clients. The Texas-based company has demonstrated transformation, beginning their journey with IBM as an IT infrastructure reseller to the oil and gas industry in the mid-1990s to a large, multidisciplinary solutions provider with enterprise and service provider clients and partners of all sizes in almost every industry across North America.
