VMware has unveiled the worldwide and regional winners of its 2023 partner achievement awards. This year’s worldwide winners are Atos, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Wipro. VMware honored more than 30 ecosystem partners in delivering “demonstrable customer outcomes and societal impact” over the last year.


VMware’s Ricky Cooper

Ricky Cooper, head of worldwide partner and commercial sales at VMware, said it’s been remarkable what the company has been able to achieve.

“VMware owes much of its success to the tremendous partner ecosystem we’ve created. Without these partners, without their innovation, without the constant steps forward, we wouldn’t be the company that we are. They’ve humbled me over this past year working with them,” Cooper said. “I’ve listened a great deal and I’ve learned so much about how they’re evolving and about what they need from VMware to win in the market. This is truly my favorite time of year, when we get stop and honor partners from around the world for their commitments to our shared customers, and their continued investments in their VMware businesses. It’s truly the age of the partner.”
