One badge, many customers

They don’t just give out badges. They give out “Customer Experience Partner of the Year Award” badges. It’s probably boorish to toot your own badge but this one is important because it symbolizes the strength and success of the Microsoft-NetApp partnership. And that success comes from our customers. Whether it’s ROI, ease of implementation or the profound benefits of their cloud journey, we are honored to have helped along the way. So, yes, we will take this badge and wear it proudly.
