CloudBlue Honors Best-In-Class Solution Providers With 2022 Partner Awards
Global Partners recognized for driving digital transformation with the CloudBlue B2B ecosystem orchestration platform
Irvine Calif. – May 18, 2022 — CloudBlue, a leading cloud ecosystem technology company, today announced its 2022 Partner Awards, recognizing worldwide customers exhibiting a high level of innovation, advocacy, performance, and sales success.
The CloudBlue Awards highlight partners utilizing CloudBlue’s powerful ecosystem orchestration platform to drive enterprise digital transformation. Key criteria used to determine this elite group of partners included overall cloud business growth, ability and motivation to innovate with the platform, and the partner’s level of engagement and alignment with CloudBlue.
“In the two-year forced hiatus separating our last partner awards ceremony from the announcement of yesterday’s winners, the world has been dramatically transformed. But as we reflect on the lessons learned and lives lost during the pandemic, we look towards the future and draw strength from the innovative spirit that has helped reshape the world during this particularly difficult and challenging period of radical transformation,” said Tarik Faouzi, senior vice president at CloudBlue. “Our channel partners: resellers, MSPs, ISDs, SIs, and telcos – are the true driving force behind our goal to build powerful ecosystems for XaaS businesses to thrive. Their determination and cooperation have been the impetus that has revolutionized the entire cloud ecosystem, catalyzed change, and expanded the capabilities of what we now deem possible as we continue to grow together. Last night’s winners exemplify these qualities, but to all our partners we are grateful for the network of support and insight that allowed CloudBlue, and the cloud industry as a whole, to draw clarity when the waters were most muddied.”
