The winners are:
* The Fastest Growth of the Year: EOH

* The Most Significant Project of the Year: Sithabile
* The Best VCSP Partner of the Year: Silicon Sky
* The Best SMB Partner of the Year: First Technology Western Cape

The awards recognise the commitment and success of Veeam ProPartners and Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partners who have demonstrated success in providing Veeam solutions to their customers, and growing their business while supporting users.
"Veeam is a partner-first business and understands that the very nature of how business is done is changing, and how quickly," says Gilles Pommier, VP Channel and Alliances EMEA at Veeam.
He says Veeam, that follows a channel sales model, aims to adapt to these needs to ensure its partners have the latest products, training and support, as well as access to its expert ecosystem.
"We are confident that we are delivering new data management capabilities for our partners to help grow their business by empowering their customers to do more with their data, offering more choice and identifying new revenue opportunities for multi-cloud environments," Pommier adds.
Lisa Strydom, channel manager lead for Africa at Veeam, says: "In 2018, our focus was on part-ners across the spectrum, from those driving business initiatives into the SME, to partners with a hybrid cloud offering, and those that offer value to the enterprise."
This year, she says, Veeam plans to expand its team locally to continue to support the channel in Africa.
