The 2021 SUSE One Partner Awards Go To…


It gives me great pleasure to announce the winners of the 2021 SUSE One Partner Awards! The awards are to honour those partners who have gone above and beyond for our joint customers in what has undoubtedly been one of the most challenging years for many.

In 2020, COVID-19 brought the world to its knees. But 2021 has seen enterprises striving to regain lost ground and adapt to the new landscape with many IT leaders now feeling under more pressure to deliver tangible outcomes than last year. Managing security and increased demands on remote infrastructure are high on the agenda, whilst maintaining service performance and reducing operational costs must also be considered.

What businesses are telling us they need is to simplify and modernise their IT operations whilst accelerating change. Simple, right? Well, with open source software, it’s a lot easier to find the right answers to those tough challenges.

Open source is the language of innovation, opening the door to new opportunities with Linux and Kubernetes – the pillars of digital transformation.

With open source you have the flexibility to move at the pace you need and the choice to shape things the way you want. That’s why 99% of the Fortune 500 use open source software and 80% of IT departments are set to increase their use of open source in 2021. And it’s easy to see why.

  • 85% of IT leaders agree that open source enables innovation at the edge
  • 84% see open source as cost-effective way to drive innovation
  • 82% feel optimistic about the future of open source

At SUSE, “openness” is about more than the technology alone.

It’s about bringing diverse communities together, collaborating, sharing and learning together to bring ideas to life. And the SUSE One Partner program is an embodiment of exactly that: The Power of Many. Together as One.

The 2021 SUSE One Partner Awards recognize partners who are aligned with SUSE’s open source philosophy and who have demonstrated how open source technology from SUSE can deliver tangible outcomes for joint customers along with long-term growth.

It’s our partner ecosystem that allows us to offer something unique to our mutual customers. And in a challenging year, where many partners have been adapting to the challenges of home-working and serving customers remotely, we’re pleased to honor those partners who have gone above and beyond in demonstrating how open source technologies can fuel innovation and growth.

Please join me in congratulating these very worthy winners of the 2021 SUSE One Partners Awards:
