Partners recognized for collaborative solutions helping clients connect IT with changing customer, workforce needs
Synergy 19, Insight Enterprises’ annual partner event, united the world’s leading technology companies at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix for two days of strategic updates and discussions built upon one purpose: creating meaningful connections that help businesses run smarter.
The event also celebrated the exceptional teamwork of Insight and its partners throughout the year with 2018 Insight Synergy Awards across 14 categories. The awards were announced Wednesday evening during a formal ceremony to conclude Synergy 19.
“As a true solutions provider, we are focused on a path that recognizes where our industry is going and leveraging our partners’ strengths to keep businesses moving forward,” said Ken Lamneck, president and CEO of Insight. “Tools like the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence are driving the next evolution, increasingly linking business and people through data. Our partnerships allow us to connect across our clients’ needs, helping them build connected workforces, launch cutting-edge digital innovations, optimize their IT supply chains, and transform their cloud and data center strategies.”
This year’s theme was “Connect,” emphasizing the collaboration between Insight and its more than 5,100 hardware, software and cloud partners to help organizations of all sizes intelligently connect with their customers and workers through frictionless experiences.
“The ways people are consuming technology forces everyone to think differently about how they’re doing business. Companies are required today to be cost-efficient yet transformational, but nine in 10 IT decision-makers say they struggle to balance those ambidextrous activities within their business,” said Steve Dodenhoff, president, Insight North America. “Our four solution areas and our deep partner relationships give clients the agility to manage the tug of war between driving savings while funding innovation. Congratulations to all of our award winners, and we look forward to continuing to connect IT with real business outcomes in 2019.”
