As 2019 comes to a close I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to our customers, alliance partners and my fellow blueAPACHEans for an incredible year. In reflecting on blueAPACHE’s journey through 2019 it has undoubtedly been the biggest in our 21-year history.
I was privileged to accept two of our industry’s most coveted awards, the ARN Mid-Market Partner of the Year Award, and the CRN Fast50 All Star Award. These awards are recognition of the amazing achievements that the team here have delivered. As we exit 2019 blueAPACHE is now a truly global organisation although our heart still remains firmly down-under. With a team approaching 200 people, we support our clients across the world who rely on blueAPACHE for the secure delivery of their business-critical applications. It’s our people that drive our success, and it is through the support and engagement of our customers and alliance partners that we achieve amazing outcomes. It was great to see many of our team members recognised for their contributions at numerous industry awards nights held throughout the year, including ARN’s Tech 30 under 30, Women in ICT Awards, Innovation Awards and HP Gala.
Information and cyber security remain top of mind and our continued investment in GRC capabilities delivered our ISO27001 certification with a scope that covers every solution and service that blueAPACHE deliver, cementing our position as the leading service provider. As we move into 2020 blueAPACHE is bringing together a suite of technologies to deliver emPOWER Workspaces. emPOWER Workspaces harness the power of the multi-cloud world we now live in, bringing together applications and data, irrespective of their origin into a unified workspace designed to deliver material productivity gains and ultimately drive the best user experience. As the shift from employee engagement to employee experience takes hold, blueAPACHE’s emPOWER Workspaces provides the platform to leverage artificial intelligence, giving focus to the most meaningful work – helping our customers win the war on talent.
I wish you all a safe and enjoyable new year filled with peace, joy, productivity and prosperity.
