QAD Named HP Alliance One Partner of The Year
QAD Honored for its Innovative Development in Support of HP Cloud Maps
Tony Winter, Chief Technology Officer for QAD, received the award from HP during a ceremony on June 6, 2011, that was held in conjunction with HP DISCOVER Americas, the company’s annual enterprise technology education and training event held in Las Vegas through June 10.
The HP AllianceONE Partner of the Year Awards are presented to an exclusive set of HP alliance partners in recognition of their outstanding accomplishments in the development and delivery of innovative solutions that achieve standard-setting levels for business excellence and client satisfaction.
“We’re very honored to receive this award,” said Winter. “QAD and HP have enjoyed a 30-plus year relationship developing and leveraging our respective innovations to deliver best-of-breed solutions that enable companies to help grow their business more efficiently and cost effectively. This award validates our teams’ dedication and hard work, and QAD's innovation in of support the evolution to the cloud and on-demand applications.”
HP Cloud Maps are navigational tools to accelerate the creation of a service catalog by providing a guide to automate infrastructure and application provisioning and deployment. The HP Cloud Map for QAD Enterprise Applications 2011 Enterprise Edition (QAD 2011 EE) provides users a reference template to automate the infrastructure provisioning and deployment for QAD 2011 EE environments.
One of the benefits of this template-approach to service creation is the opportunity to employ significant standardization for consistent and repeatable provisioning processes and reduce human error when approaching each application deployment as an isolated, customized event.
“To manage the changing demands of their customers, organizations have to accelerate time to market and time to business value,” said Duncan Campbell, Vice President, Converged Infrastructure, HP. “HP, with partners like QAD, helps break down rigid IT silos with infrastructure specifically engineered to drive out cost and provide the foundation for agile service delivery.”
For IT departments, infrastructure and application provisioning can be time consuming and resource draining.
