We consider the key trends that will define 2018’s key business challenges… Plagued by cyber-attacks and skills shortages...
Following closely from our recent wins at both the Cisco and NetApp Partner Awards, we are once again celebrating after having been honoured with several awards for our work in resilience and continuity solutions. Sungard Availability Services has taken home a number of accolades from this year’s BCI Europe and India Awards, and the CIR Business Continuity Awards – with our very own Keith Tilley scooping the Lifetime Achievement Award for his tireless work in the industry over the last 35 years.
A driving force in Sungard AS’ success since joining in 2001, Keith has overseen the growth and development of both our EMEA and India presence, establishing the company as the region’s premier BC and information availability provider. He has played a vital role in steering the market towards a more mature and sophisticated approach to business continuity.
I hope you will join us in extending our congratulations and thanks to Keith for this much deserved win!
We are also very pleased to announce that Sungard AS was also awarded the Best Contribution to Continuity & Resilience while we are delighted to note that our customer Ray Yamin of the Royal Bank of Canada was honoured as the BC Manager of the Year, in what was a richly deserved win.
Continuing our Success
The awards didn’t end there! We are also thrilled to announce that Sungard AssuranceCM, our next-generation Software as a Service solution, scooped the top prize in the Continuity & Resilience Provider (Product) category of the prestigious BCI European Awards.
Meanwhile, the Sungard AS India team was awarded the Provider of the Year (Service and Product) title for the third consecutive year since 2013. The Provider of the Year accolade goes to an organisation “providing an outstanding business continuity or resilience product or service within the region, who further can demonstrate it has provided excellent customer feedback and support.”
Meanwhile Sungard AssuranceCM picked up a further prize, taking home the Continuity & Resilience Innovation Award. The Innovation award must, of course, be innovative; contribute to best practices within the industry; and be provided with excellent support.
The BCI India Awards recognise the outstanding contribution of BC professionals and organisations in the Indian subcontinent.
Delivering Availability, Year After Year
These awards are a perfect demonstration of our continuing commitment to delivering the highest standard of business continuity for our customers. Working to shift the industry’s outlook from being a recovery-led process to one of All-TimeTM availability, we have worked hard to help organisations understand the importance of an always on mind-set.
We are immensely proud of the industry recognition and hugely proud of the Sungard AS family that continuously strive to deliver, on a daily basis, to the customers that we serve.
Thanks to everyone who works with and supports us.
And congratulations to our fellow award winners too!
