Another win for Icon Solutions at IBM Impact 2014!

30 April 2014

Icon Solutions were delighted to win the Cloud Innovation award at IBM Impact on 27 April 2014. The award recognises the Business Partner who has provided an innovative software solution using WebSphere technologies and their patterns for IBM’s PureApplication System demonstrated just that.

As a leading Business Partner working on PureApplication, Icon Solutions has developed a number of bespoke patterns for customers looking to deploy Private or ‘On-Premise’ cloud solutions whilst benefitting from a flexible Platform as a Service model. Their winning solution for this category also included a pattern which proved to a customer that PureApplication is truly an open platform and can extend the same benefits to non IBM software.

Martin Hampton, Sales Manager at Icon who attended the ceremony and received the award said, “We’ve made significant investment in the past 18 months to build a PureApplication System Practice which can quickly deliver a range of PureApplication patterns to meet a variety of business needs. The benefits of our patterns to customers is threefold; cost reduction in IT Operations (which allows refocused efforts on higher value tasks), faster time to market for new business initiatives and increased protection to business critical applications.”

Tom Kelleher, Commercial Director at Icon who was also at the ceremony added, “This actually marks our second award at Impact we were very proud to win the PureApplication Award at the event last year and were delighted to be nominated in the same category again this year in addition to the Cloud Innovation award. Achievements like this really solidifies our position as the leading UK IBM Business Partner for PureApplication and is well deserved recognition for the team behind our Practice.”
