As many of you will know, I have been talking for a while now about evolving our business to ensure we can help our clients to meet the challenges of the future head-on. Or, as I like to say – moving the world from .Now to .Next.
But what does that mean? For me, it is really about understating the challenges that living in a .Now digital world presents, and then assisting our clients – current and future – move seamlessly into the .Next world of the future. MTI helps its organisations evolve from relying on traditional IT silos (and the inefficiencies and cost burdens this represents!) to a world focussed on agility and performance. MTI’s mission is to stay ahead of emerging technology such as software-defined applications, infrastructure, and data centers.
With this in mind, I am delighted to announce that MTI has earned recognition for its forward-thinking approach. MTI has been named ‘High Growth Partner in Flash’ at EMC’s ‘Partner Redefined Event’ earlier this week. Our very own Simon Walters, Director of Managed Services was on hand to collect the award on behalf of UK Sales Director for Managed Services & Datacentre, Craig Russell. By all accounts, Simon enjoyed receiving the award in the plush surroundings of the BAFTA Studios in London. I am sure Craig would want me to emphasise that this award is recognition of the work that everyone at MTI has been doing recently.
This award is another feather in our cap and validates our approach where we are continuing to invest in cloud, big data, mobile, and security for the .Next world. The award also comes on the back of our recent achievement in becoming the first partner certified to deliver end-to-end services for EMC’s all-flash-array solution, XtremIO.
As you can see, it’s been a busy couple of months at MTI. It’s always nice to get awards for our efforts and everyone at MTI should be extremely proud of everything we have achieved over the last few months.
I know that our focus on helping our clients move into the .Next world is going to ensure we stay ahead of the game and we’ll continue to win accolades or our industry-leading work. We might even need to start working on a few more BAFTA-esque award acceptance speeches!
