Data#3, Logicalis and Telstra picked up global accolades during 2023's Cisco Partner Summit in Miami.
For the sixth time, Data#3 was recognised as a global champion, scooping up the Cisco Global Software Partner of the Year award.
“Earning the Cisco Software Partner of the Year award is a testament to our team's ongoing dedication to creating software solutions that ensure our customers’ customers thrive in the digital era. This recognition reaffirms our position as a technology leader, driving innovation and delivering tangible results,” Data#3 CTO Graham Robinson said.
Logicalis secured two awards and was named the Sustainability Partner of the Year in a nod to its success in helping customers reduce their environmental impact with tools such as its Digital Fabric Platform that allows customers to measure and reduce the environmental impact of their IT infrastructure. Logicalis is one of only six Cisco Global Gold certified partners and holds the Cisco Environmental Sustainability Specialisation in 15 territories globally.
Logicalis also helped a number of organisations such as Australian company G.James undertake responsible recycling and repurposing of end-of-use equipment and also provided smart building solutions for UK-based UKRI.

“Over the past 12 months, our goal was to create meaningful change for our industry as we focused on driving sustainable outcomes for customers through our managed connectivity services,” Logicalis global CEO Robert Bailkoski said.
“It’s a privilege for those efforts to be recognised with the awards of Global Partner of the Year for Sustainability and Global Enterprise Networking and Meraki Partner of the Year for the second consecutive year. These accolades reaffirm our commitment to facilitating sustainable business outcomes for our customers moving forward.”
