Shows market leadership with IT by Wire solution blueprint powered by HPE technology
Logicalis UK, the international IT solutions and managed services provider, today announced it has won Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) 2016 EMEA Hybrid IT Partner of the Year Award. The accolade reflects Logicalis’ proven customer success and technical capability in hybrid cloud environments, using its unique platform architecture blueprint – ‘IT by Wire’ - to bring the power of HPE automation, management and analytics to give CIOs end-to-end visibility of their digital enterprises.
“This award is great recognition for our work helping enterprise customers achieve digital transformation with software-defined, hybrid IT infrastructure,” said Bob Swallow, Managing Director at Logicalis UK. “We value our close partnership with HPE and this award is recognition and endorsement of our approach in designing joint solutions around HPE’s advanced technologies and products. Our commitment to high-level HPE technical accreditations, marketing and state-of-the-art demonstration facilities help us to stand out in a highly competitive UK market place.”
One example of a true hybrid IT solution powered by HPE and delivered by Logicalis UK is the innovative £1.3m Digital Platform project at the University of Wolverhampton (UoW). Recognised as an exemplary project throughout the UK higher education sector, this leverages ‘IT by Wire’ to blend an infrastructure foundation (HPE Hyper Convergence), through the virtualisation layer, to automation (HPE Helion) cloud services integration and instrumentation (HPE OneView, HPE Cloud Optimizer). This approach helps organisations like UoW automate the provisioning, control, management, and cost of IT services at speed; shifting department focus from operational fix to policy-driven decision-making in line with an internal service provider model.
“We’re proud to recognise Logicalis as our top ‘Transform to a Hybrid Infrastructure’ partner this year. The award illustrates Logicalis’ commitment to innovate and guide customers on their digital transformations, whilst also highlighting the company’s excellent business performance,” said Xavier Poisson Gouyou Beauchamps, Vice President, Hybrid IT EMEA at HPE.
