Asystec has won the prestigious VMware 2016 UK & Ireland Partner of the year award, hosted at the St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel on Wednesday the 5th of July.


One of the reasons for winning the award was based on significant growth.  Asystec managed to deliver 210% YoY growth from 2015 into 2016 with 60% of their revenues focussed on non-vSphere revenue.  This was built upon large Enterprise license agreements including VSAN, NSX, VRealize & Horizon solutions.  All of these technologies are viewed by VMware as “Act2” technologies, that are seen as key to the sustained growth of VMware moving forward.


Lorne Chedzey, Head of Cloud & Infrastructure solutions, Asystec stated “I think customers now are looking for genuine value-add partners that can deliver platforms that enable Digital transformation.  VMware provides us with the technology and combined with our extensive professional services capabilities, we provide a solution to our customers that meets their needs for innovation and delivers a genuine ROI.  I think that is why we have had so much success in the UK & I marketplace with VMware”.


Oisin Cummins, VMware Partner Manager said “We view Asystec as an extension of the VMware team.  Their knowledge, expertise and transparency make it very easy to do business with them.  Even this year, after such a strong 2016, Asystec are on track to grow even more”.


“We are honoured to win such a prestigious award and to be viewed as the best VMware Partner within the UK & Ireland“ said Les Byrne, Managing Director for Asystec. “We have invested heavily in our VMware business, setup a dedicated team, and hired the best in the industry, and it’s nice to see this investment come to fruition, and to be recognised by VMware for such an achievement”.
