What an evening!
Last week Cloudera hosted over 150 attendees at our annual EMEA Partner Summit in Amsterdam with attendees from over 21 countries across the region. Representatives from across the Cloudera ecosystem came together to hear from company executives and EMEA leadership as well as interactive sessions on Machine Learning, AI and Data Analytics, Cloud and Platform as well training and certification opportunities.
It also was a night to celebrate partner support from the past year and recognise some of the incredible achievements of the team and we were so pleased that we could recognise some of the work and talent in the region.
Alex Picker, Director of Channel and Alliances in EMEA commented: “I am thrilled to be able to recognise the work of our EMEA partners this year. Cloudera’s partner ecosystem is large and fast-growing, enabling customers to achieve their goals and support mission-critical workloads across all industries and regions. We want to thank all the applicants for their investment and their collaboration in delivering impactful solutions to customers.”
The winners in each category were selected by members of the Cloudera EMEA Partner and Alliances team and award winners were announced at the Cloudera EMEA Partner Summit 2018 in Amsterdam on September 26th.
This year the EMEA Partner of the Year went to Accenture to recognise them as a Digital Transformation Advisor and collaborative partner in some of Cloudera’s largest accounts in Europe. Accenture Applied Intelligence, part of Accenture Digital, have consistently supported increased investment in hiring and training and certifying employees on our platform to deliver an outstanding experience to our customers.
