2nd Annual AppDynamics “Partners of the Year” Extend Geographical Presence, Promote Integrated Solutions, and Support Customer Innovation
AppDynamics recognizes the achievements of their innovative Channel Partners in their 2nd Annual Partner of the Year awards.
by Ryan Shopp
It’s been another record year for the AppDynamics Channel, despite the global headwinds facing all businesses large and small. In fact, the momentum set into place over the past few years is marked by the continued stellar performance of AppDynamics Partners. This past fiscal year, over 80% of deals were touched by our Partners, a huge accomplishment in any “normal” business year. 2020 was obviously different, and we wanted to profoundly thank our Partners for their continued and incredible business efforts.
As established last year, we’re taking a moment to recognize the achievements of these Partners by designating one partner in each region as our Partner of the Year.
These awards aren’t solely based on revenue generation — we also looked at our Partners’ value-add to close deals as well as their commitment to innovating to drive customer outcomes through marketing campaigns, digital events, technical innovations, and their ongoing AppDynamics practices. Each award winner brings unique capabilities, but if there’s one thing they have in common, it’s their focus on introducing automation to help remediate issues fast and relieve IT Ops teams of mundane tasks.
A prime example of how our partners continue to push innovative solutions forward: Cisco’s acquisition of ThousandEyes. This acquisition was enthusiastically received by our channel partners, and each regional winner below is now showcasing to their customers the frictionless handoff between network and application operations teams for reduced remediation times.
Americas Winner: World Wide Technology (WWT)
We’ve been continuously impressed by WWT’s multiple technology initiatives, all of which feature AppDynamics in some capacity. Their Advanced Technology Center (ATC) is a collaborative ecosystem that helps enterprises design, build, and deploy new technology products within an overall integrated architectural solution. WWT is committed to ensuring customers realize the benefits of AppDynamics, and their Application Implementation Review (AIR Check) finetunes implementations to optimize their value. AppDynamics is also part of ORA (Operational Readiness Assessment), WWT’s AIOps Consultative Engagement offering.
Tanner Bechtel, who leads the WWT Application Performance Monitoring (APM) and Artificial Intelligence IT Operations (AIOps) division, welcomed the news of the award.
“Being recognized with this award is a testimony to the ongoing investment we at WWT have made in AppDynamics. We view AppDynamics as not just a market-leading APM vendor, but also a foundational component of our AIOps ecosystem. AppDynamics integrates with areas such as ITSM, alerting, and cloud-native technologies, and with the new joint ThousandEyes solution, a compelling proposition is made even stronger.”
