Fronde wins 2014 Red Hat APAC Partner Award
MEDIA RELEASE - Wellington, New Zealand, 15 July 2014 - Australasian technology company, Fronde was awarded Red Hat’s ANZ Top Partner Channel Award for the financial year ending 2014. Red Hat’s APAC partner conference was held in Bali last week.
The award was given to Fronde across the ANZ region, and recognised the company’s success and innovation in driving channel sales of open source solutions in the ANZ market.
Paul Armstrong, chief information officer at Fronde was in Bali to attend the conference, and says that creating a formal collaboration with Red Hat was natural and easy, given Fronde’s existing skills and experience and how readily they transferred into the Red Hat product space.
“The award is extremely gratifying. It recognises and rewards Fronde’s own strategy, which includes a focus on enterprise system integration and the move into cloud and hybrid cloud solutions. Also, knowing that this is Red Hat’s strategy, we anticipate a lot more shared success.”
The award was given for a Red Hat JBoss Fuse integration solution deployed on top of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It replaces mission critical infrastructure that is identified as critical to New Zealand’s economy and demonstrates the maturity of the product and services provided by both Red Hat and Fronde.
Colin Garro, director of channel sales and development, ANZ region, at Red Hat, says partners play a critical role in Red Hat's business.
"The annual Red Hat APAC Partner Conference is a great platform for us to get together, make plans, share successes and discuss best practices with our partners from across the region. FY14 was an exciting year for us and we are happy to have the opportunity to recognise Fronde's efforts and achievements as top channel partner for ANZ at the conference. Congratulations to Fronde again."
Red Hat relates to both Fronde’s enterprise grade system integration and cloud and hybrid cloud solutions. Based on the shared success and good alignment of strategies, further investment is anticipated into Fronde’s Red Hat capability.
Derek Wilson, country manager, New Zealand, Red Hat says:
"It is with great pleasure that we announced Fronde as our top channel partner in the ANZ region at this year's partner conference. With Fronde's support, we have reached out to an even wider audience across key verticals such as telco and energy. We look forward to greater collaboration this year and beyond.”
