CDI Named VMware Cloud on AWS Partner of the Year and VMware State and Local Government and Education Growth Partner of the Year
IT systems integrator continues historic run of awards, following the acceptance of five additional Partner of the Year designations from technology leaders
New York, NY – April 10, 2023 – The East Coast’s leading provider of technology solutions and services, CDI (Computer Design & Integration, LLC), announced today that it has been awarded the VMware Cloud on AWS Partner of the Year and the VMware State and Local Government and Education (SLED) Growth Partner of the Year. The SLED Growth Partner award was announced during the VMware Partner Connect Enablement Day at the Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner.
The VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Services Partner of the Year award recognizes CDI’s exceptional performance in helping customers adopt and implement VMware Cloud on AWS, a combined offering from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and VMware. Thanks in large part to their industry-leading expertise in cloud architecture and migration, paired with their unrivaled mastery of VMware technology, CDI clients have been able to migrate their workloads quickly and successfully to the cloud, while reducing costs and improving operational efficiency.
“We are honored to receive the VMware Cloud on AWS Partner of the Year award,” said Will Huber, Chief Technology Officer, CDI. “We remain the only partner to achieve all eight VMware Master Services Competencies and will continue to leverage our expertise to help clients around the world achieve business success. Winning this award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, who have helped customers leverage the power of VMware Cloud on AWS to drive innovation.”
The VMware State and Local Government and Education Growth Partner of the Year award recognizes CDI’s exceptional growth performance in 2022. In a short period of time but with great focus, CDI grew its SLED VMware business dramatically. As CDI continues to grow, its SLED vertical is a key area of opportunity heading into 2023. As education and government customers realize their need for partners with expertise in VMware rather than just procurement vehicles, CDI sees great opportunity to capture SLED revenues and mutually grow its business alongside VMware.
Kelli Moraz, Senior Partner Sales Manager, announced the award at the event: “I’m excited to announce our SLED Growth Partner of the Year is awarded to CDI! CDI is one of the only VMware partners holding all eight of our Master Services Competencies. CDI is also making significant investments in growing their SLED business, most notably hiring Associate Vice President of SLED, Rosemary Pron. CDI worked closely with our VMware team and Carahsoft to close one of the largest SLED deals in our fourth quarter, helping them achieve tremendous SLED growth. We are looking forward to continued success and growth together this year as well – thank you CDI!”
“Carahsoft is proud to team with CDI in the State, Local & EDU markets,” said Tim Boltz, Sales Director, Carahsoft. “CDI has made strategic and significant investments in their capabilities and are adding tremendous value to our State Government & Education customers. The future is bright for CDI and their clients as they use VMware solutions to build the foundation of their multi-cloud strategy.”
“We are honored to receive the VMware State and Local Government and Education Growth Partner of the Year,” said CDI’s Rosemary Pron, AVP, SLED. “This award not only demonstrates our quick ramp in the back half of last year, but also signifies our continued trajectory and potential as we head into 2023. This will be a year of change as we disrupt the traditional selling motions of transactional partners in SLED and bring value to our Education and Government customers by providing deep expertise in the deployment and consumption of VMware’s products.”
