SCC is celebrating after winning a top industry award.
Europe’s largest independent technology solutions brand picked up the prize for Server and Storage Specialised Partner of the Year 2013 at the Oracle UK Specialised Partner Awards ceremony held at the London Waldorf Hilton Hotel. Competition for the award was tough, with SCC up against five other companies: BT Engage IT, Computacenter, Esteem and Fujitsu.
The award recognises the tenacity, energy and investment the SCC team has shown during difficult marketing conditions, particularly within the challenges of Oracle acquiring Sun Microsystems, Xsigo and Pillar Data.
James Gallagher, SCC Oracle Alliance Manager said: “This is a wonderful achievement for everyone involved with the Oracle business. The excellent portfolio of Oracle’s hardware and software together with SCC’s ‘plan, design, implement and manage’ service capability, means we can offer our customers best of breed technology solutions.
“We are very serious and committed to our partnership with Oracle, to delivering enterprise class IT solutions. The team has worked very hard and should be very proud that Oracle has recognised us in this way.”
Dermot O’Kelly Oracle Senior Vice President for UK, Ireland, and Israel said: “SCC has enhanced its knowledge of the Oracle portfolio massively in the last 12 months by increasing their number of Oracle Specialisations at an exceptional rate.
“They work closely and collaboratively with Oracle, and take the necessary time to truly understand their customers’ business needs in many areas, but with a strong focus in server and storage systems.
“They have a dedicated Oracle sales desk of 12 qualified and specialised personnel, and have the highest resell volume of T4 servers of any UK partner. That is why the Specialised Partner of the Year for Server and Storage Systems is SCC.”
The Oracle Specialised Partner Awards recognise partners for their commitment to delivering innovative, specialised solutions and services based on Oracle hardware and software.
The triumphant SCC Oracle team is James Gallagher – SCC Oracle Alliance Manager, Ben Viollet Oracle Alliance Manager, Brian Lavelle, Chris Barker, Chris Lawrence, Tracy Nugent and Ian Watkins.
