Partner Status Quo Breaker

Nov 03, 2014

Award is in recognition of Emitac’s efforts in helping customers shift their networks from legacy hardware platforms to virtualized platforms primed for the cloud transition

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates: November 3, 2014 – As an initiative to acknowledge top performing partners, Brocade (NASDAQ: BRCD) has awarded Emitac Enterprise Solutions (EES), a leading IT infrastructure and solutions provider based in the UAE, with the ‘Partner Status Quo Breaker’ award. The award recognizes Emitac’s outstanding partnership in delivering cutting-edge networks, including working closely with the networking vendor in getting competitive accounts and investing in a Brocade-focused team.

Yarob Sakhnini, regional director, MEMA at Brocade says, “The world has changed, and today’s users are demanding much more from IT. To meet this challenge, data center networks must be more flexible, scalable, and efficient. Unfortunately, legacy networks simply aren’t designed for today’s growing workloads. It is time for organizations to say goodbye to status quo networks and make the transition to the New IP and Ethernet Fabric based networks that pave the way for Software-Defined Networking and support highly virtualized and cloud-ready environments. But given the time, money, and manpower invested in legacy networks, IT departments must overcome quite a bit of inertia before buying into a new way of thinking.”

“We rely heavily on our partners to carry this message out to the market and bring about change in the mindsets of CIOs and IT managers. The award celebrates the resourcefulness and spirit of our partners who have broken out of status-quo thinking, status-quo selling and status-quo solutions to deliver the best possible answer to customer challenges. We congratulate Emitac for being among the first batch of winners of this award globally.”

Miguel Angel Villalonga, CEO, Emitac Enterprise Solutions says, “EES is pleased to be recognized for the ‘The Status Quo breaker’ award from Brocade. We are encouraged and extremely happy to be appreciated for demonstrating vision, cutting-edge technology expertise, intense customer commitment and building complementary value solutions that meet the demanding business needs of our key customers. Like Brocade, we have always been keen to develop and extend value-adding relationships with key partners where we can leverage each-others’ core competencies to reach customers and markets. In that regard, we are continually renewing our efforts across the business and between our sales and services teams to identify, propose and win mutually successful sales together. This award is certainly a testimony to our ongoing efforts.”
