SCC is recognised by Nutanix for its outstanding contribution to its corporate social responsibility (CSR)
London — November 27, 2018 — SCC announced today at Nutanix’s annual .NEXT Europe conference that it has been awarded the 2018 Nutanix .heart Giving Back award.
The award presented by Nutanix recognised SCC for its participation in the Course Du Coeur. The event aims to raise awareness of the shortage of organ donations and brings together people who have had organ transplants, medical personalities, athletes, institutions and large companies.
SCC was chosen for the award for exemplifying the mission of Nutanix’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) program – .heart – to allocate voices, time and funds to make a positive impact on people, communities and the world.
The Course du Coeur is a 800km amateur event from Paris to les Arcs, crossing 200+ towns in France and consists of 23 teams of 14 runners, who run in relay mode for 4 days and 4 nights non-stop to spread this important message.
This year, the race took place on 28th March – 1st April and Team SCC will participate for the 6th consecutive year on 27th – 31st March 2019. SCC France has participated in this fantastic awareness campaign for the past five years, with SCC UK and Romania also taking part for the last two.
“We’re thrilled to have honoured SCC at .NEXT Europe this year for their continued investment in CSR activities,” said Rodney Foreman, Vice President, Global Channel Sales, Nutanix. “SCC France has reached the most advanced partner level in Nutanix’s channel charter – Master level – and have the largest number of certified employees on the Nutanix platform).”
He continued, “SCC not only embodies our product mission of helping businesses embrace enterprise cloud solutions for their data centre needs, but they also mirror the .heart mission of organisations making a positive impact on their external community. For this reason, this award is rightfully deserved by SCC and its hard-working team.”
Olivier TAIEB, Innovation Director at SCC France said, “The partnership with Nutanix has been an important axis of development and innovation for us. We started our collaboration in December 2015 and have since then continued to contribute jointly to the success of the projects presented to us. We’ve since worked on a number of successful customer implementations together and continue to see increased interest in Nutanix solutions across Europe.”
