Last week saw two of the biggest events in our UK channel world - 2014 CRN Fight Night and the Mimecast Partner Awards 2014. Although our Mimecast contender Sam ‘Baby-faced Assassin’ Oliver didn’t prevail in his fight I can say, as I was next to the ring, it was a heroic performance.
The Mimecast Partner Awards, was held just before Fight Night and was equally as exciting. Six winners were announced in total (detailed at the end of this post) and some exclusive material was previewed by Mimecast.
Mimecasters introduced the new UK channel strategy to partners, which includes a new and larger Mimecast team to support partners drive a deeper engagement with customers. In addition, Gillian Crewdson, Channel Director teased the audience with a sneak preview of our impressive position in the upcoming CRN Vendor Report 2014 report. More to come on that when CRN launch it…
We also lifted the lid on the expanded range of products on offer from Mimecast this year and heard from our CTO, Neil Murray, about the evolution of our technology platform which delivers our services.
The feedback and participation we get from the Partner Awards always highlights how privileged we are to have a large and highly committed partner channel in the UK…I can’t wait to see who wins next year.
