Recognising Data#3 as a leader within Cisco’s global partner community of over 60,000 organisations, the award was presented in acknowledgement of Data#3’s innovative approach and ongoing focus on customer success. Data#3 has also been recognised as the Cisco APJC Marketing partner of the Year, for the second year running.
The global award for Cisco’s Commercial Partner of the Year follows Data#3’s prior recognition as Cisco’s global Enterprise Networking Partner of the Year in 2019, and global Software Partner of the Year in 2018.
