Data Integration announced today that it has received the Service Partner of the Year 2005 award from Juniper Networks, the leader in enabling secure and assured communications over a single IP network.
The award was presented at Juniper's annual EMEA Elite Partner Forum 2005 in Barcelona. The award was presented to Garath Lauder, MD, Data Integration, U.K.
Data Integration received the Service Partner of the Year 2005 award due to its excellent service practices, which support our customers across the full range of Juniper enterprise products said Gert-Jan Schenk, vice president of channels in EMEA for Juniper Networks.
Our people have worked hard to develop their in-depth Juniper Networks knowledge and to meet the accreditation requirements to give Data Integration its Enterprise Elite Partner and U.K. Service Centre status. With a range of application acceleration and security projects already under our belt, we have proven our ability to deliver sophisticated solutions and we are very pleased to receive this recognition from Juniper, said Garath Lauder.
Juniper's J-Partner program is structured to promote specialist knowledge within its routing, security and application acceleration product portfolios among its registered partner base, enabling resellers to add value and deliver optimum service to end users. By focusing on expertise and product knowledge rather than revenue goals, Juniper provides even the smaller resellers within J-Partner the environment to succeed and maximize market opportunities in their specialism. The annual EMEA Elite Partner Forum brings together Juniper's most successful partners within J-Partner to share sales and technical information, and to reward excellence.
