Announcing the 2017 Global Partner Award Winners

In case you missed it, yesterday Hortonworks announced the 2017 winners of the company’s second annual Global Partner Awards.

These awards are part of the Partnerworks program, a global program to support and enable partners selling, implementing, and innovating with Hortonworks to deliver integrated customer solutions for the datacenter and in the cloud. The program was launched two years ago, and in that time Partnerworks has grown significantly.

Without further ado, here are the 2017 Global Partner Award winners:

Global Partner of the Year –  IBM 

This award recognizes efforts in building innovative and differentiated offerings to create new market opportunities.

Global Systems Integrator of the Year – Accenture

This award recognizes efforts to create integrated solutions and services for specific use cases that drive client success.

Global Independent Software Vendor (ISV) of the Year – Attunity

This award recognizes efforts by independent software vendors to develop and certify complementary solutions with Hortonworks products to meet broader customer needs.

“The Global Partner program is essential to our joint customers’ success. Through access to our technology experts and a library of go-to-market resources and extensive training, our Partners can maximize their investment in Hortonworks while also providing best-in-class insights and solutions for their customers. IBM, Accenture and Attunity’s success is a credit to their innovative, collaborative approach to working with Hortonworks and, importantly, within the broader ecosystem that exists to best serve our customers and the future of open source data management technologies.” –Alan Fudge, Chief Revenue Officer, Hortonworks

The Partnerworks programs offer a unique value for each type of partner with go-to-market commitments to support joint success over time. The three different programs include:

  • ISV/IHV program enables independent software and hardware vendors to develop, test, certify, deploy and support joint solutions with Hortonworks’ products.
  • Consultant program is for consultants and system integrators that offer design, consulting and/or deployment services with our Connected Data Platforms (data in motion: Hortonworks Data Flow and data at rest:  Hortonworks Data Platform)
  • Reseller program is for partners interested in reselling Hortonworks fulfilled support subscriptions and other services to their customers.

Hortonworks is proud to celebrate the 2017 Global Partner Award winners. There’s no question that 2018 will be another huge year for Partnerworks. The program empowers partners to take advantage of open source technology and opens new growth opportunities for partners and their customers.
