EMC Ireland awards 2015 Partner of The Year

Datapac,a leading ICT solutions and services provider, today announced that it has been awarded EMC Partner of the Year for 2015 for new customer acquisition. The awards ceremony was held last night at the Dylan hotel in Dublin.

Datapac won this award for the breadth of new customer acquisitions it has achieved in Ireland over the past year for EMC solutions and services, including 15 significant new customer wins. Datapac experienced 220% growth in its enterprise storage and solutions business in 2014.

EMC is a global leader for information management and storage. It has a broad portfolio of innovative systems, software and services, and has made a cumulative investment of (USD) $16.5 billion in research and development since 2003. Ireland is an important part of EMC's global business, employing more than 3,000 people in Cork, Dublin and Belfast, including a Global R&D centre and a manufacturing facility, both based in Cork.

Datapac is Ireland's largest indigenous ICT solutions provider. It has enjoyed double digit growth across many of its business divisions over the past year. Its enterprise storage and solutions business has grown at an unprecedented level as Irish organisations have turned to Datapac to help them manage growing levels of data volume and complexity.

Patrick Kickham, director, Datapac, said, "To be recognised as EMC's Irish partner of the year for new customer acquisition is fantastic news for everybody at Datapac. We're in a process of continual investment in our service portfolio, processes and people, and winning an award like this is proof that we're making the right investments and delivering strong growth results. We're looking forward to further substantial growth in 2015 as our successful partnership with EMC reaps further dividends."

Gerry Murray, county manager, EMC Ireland, "We're delighted that Datapac has won this award. They have demonstrated the highest levels of dedication, commitment and in-depth knowledge of our solutions portfolio, as well as a deep understanding of the evolving needs of Irish businesses. By bringing this all together so successfully, they are enabling us to grow and broaden our customer base and market share together in Ireland."
