SHI wins 2 Cisco Partner of the Year awards, preps for new Cisco growth

connected worldCisco is building on its traditional dominance in networking, and evolving its strategy to meet customer demand for cloud, security, big data, and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. At the Cisco Partner Summit last week in Montreal, Cisco executives acknowledged this shift by often categorizing the organization as a “software company,” and pointing to consumption models supporting IoT, hybrid IT, and software as the forces that would drive future growth.

This pivot in the overall Cisco offering places increased importance on a continually strengthening SHI-Cisco partnership. SHI grew its Cisco business 24 percent in 2014, making Cisco a top-10 SHI partner for the first time, and early returns on 2015 suggest the pace is quickening. Through Q1, SHI’s year-over-year Cisco product sales grew 46 percent while services grew 11 percent.

In recognition of this growth, Cisco again recognized SHI’s partnership with two 2015 awards: U.S. Nationals Commercial Partner of the Year and U.S. South Region Partner of the Year.

“I am proud of the Cisco and SHI employees who work together every day to support our ever-strengthening partnership, and I am happy their efforts have been acknowledged with these two awards,” offered Thai Lee, the President and CEO of SHI. “As Cisco continues its transformation by introducing new products and services, SHI remains committed to helping customers manage and optimize these new technologies to meet their unique business goals.”

We’re excited to partner with Cisco at such a transformative time, and are confident our broad experience in software licensing, asset and data management, and security will help Cisco customers capitalize on the newest technology trends and solutions.
