Especially this past year, your commitment to driving innovation – even in the face of unprecedented change and challenges – has resulted in tangible impact across countless businesses and people’s lives.

That’s why we have developed the 2021 VMware Partner Achievement Awards to recognize your success and outstanding results.

By submitting an application for one of the five categories above, partners may be considered for additional recognition opportunities, including:

The 2021 VMware Partner Achievement Awards program is again being run in partnership with IDC, who will help review and evaluate award submissions against the criteria for each category. This year’s winners will be announced at VMware EMPOWER Online in May 2021.

“What we’re seeing our partners do across the connected ecosystem is nothing short of remarkable,” says Sandy Hogan, Senior Vice President of the VMware Worldwide Partner and Commercial Organization. “VMware Partners are stepping up and playing a more critical role across the customer lifecycle to drive outcomes and create new opportunities at any stage of their digital transformation journeys. We look forward to highlighting these incredible stories of transformation and innovation in our awards program.”

Why apply for an award?

Recognition through the VMware Partner Achievement Award program allows you to differentiate your achievements and increase your visibility with customers. It also positions you for future business opportunities, garnering the potential for increased industry reputation and revenue growth.

Award recipients will be offered marketing and promotional opportunities with VMware as well.
