Advizex announced today that HPE has named Advizex as its 2021 U.S. As-a-Service Partner of the Year.

The 2021 HPE Partner of the Year Awards recognize HPE partners from across the ecosystem for their incredible commitment to customer excellence, continued strong performance, focus on growth, and dedication to our mutual achievements. Winners were selected based on financial performance, innovative solutions, and ability to drive transformative business outcomes for shared customers.

“In the last year, I’ve seen HPE partners go above and beyond the call of duty. I’m incredibly proud to honor them with these accolades,” said George Hope, Worldwide Head of Partner Sales, HPE. “As a channel-led company, HPE is committed to supporting our partners with the best-in-industry innovation, initiatives, and expertise to drive excellence and deliver better outcomes to our shared customers. We are grateful for continued strong partnerships, which allows us to collaborate and grow together, while setting a new standard for our joint success.”

“It is a huge honor to be the As-a-Service partner of the year,” said C.R. Howdyshell, President of Advizex. “This isn’t about being the biggest partner, it is about being better at executing Everything as-a-Service strategy. HPE invested in the channel, which has given us the ability to make a big bet on this strategy.”

Earlier this year, Joe VanPatten accepted the role of Vice President of Cloud Consumption. Investments like this have allowed Advizex to lead the industry in As-a-Service solutions.

“HPE invested a lot in us, and we invested a lot in them,” said VanPatten. “We are excited about it and we feel like we are ahead of the competition. I haven’t found a workload that GreenLake can’t handle.”

Advizex has been able to help customers across various industries make the shift to an as-a-service cloud consumption model, thus allowing them to stay ahead of the curve with a customized IT solution. Customers such as W.R. Grace & Co, a global specialty chemical manufacturing company, needed a solution for growth that would align with customer needs and would scale as they continue to grow.

The 2021 winners were honored during HPE Discover at the North America Partner of the Year Award Ceremony.
