Award Recognizes AHEAD for Collaboration Efforts Across the VMware Partner Ecosystem with AWS

CHICAGO — April 10, 2023 — AHEAD announced today that it has been awarded the 2023 VMware Partner Collaboration Award for the Americas region along with Amazon Web Services (AWS) as part of VMware’s annual Partner Achievement Awards. This award celebrates VMware partners for working collaboratively with other partners to deliver high-value, tailored solutions to customers. AHEAD and AWS were recognized by VMware for their collaborative spirit and commitment to helping its customers benefit from the highest level of innovation.

“Customer success in multi-cloud depends on a connected ecosystem. Neither VMware nor any single partner can solve all of a customer’s needs alone,” said Tara Fine, vice president, Americas partner organization, VMware. “Encouraging partners to work together is one of our key business priorities to create customers for life. AHEAD and AWS are demonstrating a commitment to innovating for the multi-cloud era by identifying areas of collaboration in service of customer needs and bringing together companies with complementary skills to deliver exceptional value.”

This award is in recognition of AHEAD and AWS collaboration on a first-of-its-kind transaction for a global life sciences company—a joint AHEAD and AWS client. The outcome was a hybrid ELA approach which enabled improved VMware cloud subscription licenses, enhanced customer support, optimized PSO credit consumption, and deepened relationships between the client, AHEAD and AWS.

“Receiving this award from such a valued partner as VMware for our work with AWS is an honor,” said Jamison Nack, vice president of sales strategy and alliances at AHEAD. “The award is an indicator of how highly we regard our partnerships and our focus on collaboration to ensure client success.”
