There was no shortage of competition. With a large network of HPE partners across the world, there never is.

But after delivering outstanding performance and accomplishments that raise the standard for business excellence and customer satisfaction, International Integrated Solutions, Ltd. (IIS) rose above the field to claim HPE’s Global Partner of the Year award, presented at the 2016 HPE Global Partner Conference.

The company is aligned well to HPE’s four global Transformation Areas – Transform to a Hybrid Infrastructure, Protect Your Digital Enterprise, Empower the Data-Driven Organization and Enable Workplace Productivity – and continues to innovate its business as the IT world continues to evolve. For IIS, which was also named North American Software Partner of the Year, the win proves that it was best aligned with HPE to deliver the business outcomes that give customers a competitive edge.

“We’re honored to have been chosen from among all of the global partners for such a prestigious award,” said IIS co-founder and CEO John Iacone. “We’ve been delivering HPE solutions to our customers for over 20 years, and this award shows how efficiently we’ve adapted and evolved to dramatically changing IT needs over that time.”

According to HPE, IIS was a natural choice for the award, given its excellent financial performance and drive for meaningful business results with shared customers.

“HPE is changing the way it does business as rapidly as anyone in the industry, and our global partners have had to keep pace just as quickly,” said Kerry Bailey, Senior Vice President World Wide Indirect Sales at HPE. “IIS is a shining example of how to navigate that process.”

Each year HPE recognizes its outstanding partners as part of its Global Partner Conference; this year’s event took place September 12-14 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
