Adaptavist recognised as a leading global Atlassian Partner
Atlassian Summit 2014 was the biggest and best Atlassian event yet with more than 2,100 delegates and a host of major product releases. It was also Adaptavist's biggest Summit yet. We were Gold sponsors of the event, had the largest Partner presence of 17 team members and delivered four sold-out training sessions in the Atlassian University. Most notable of all, though, was being awarded the Atlassian President's Award for Technical Excellence.
It was great to end another year of spectacular growth and achievement being presented with the award by Jay Simons, Atlassian's President. This year saw Adaptavist increase revenues by 110% and expand our operations in the UK, North America and Germany. The award is recognition of the service that we deliver for clients in more than 60 countries and the level of expertise we have with the Atlassian product set.
Delivering the full value of Atlassian software
Working with Atlassian software since 2005, we have built a reputation for the breadth and depth of our experience with Atlassian's products. We also pride ourselves on the fact that we help clients understand Atlassian's products in the context of their own business and their overall application lifecycle.
Through professional services, managed services, training and software, we offer the world's most complex Enterprises ways to improve their competitive edge. We help them plan, deliver and manage their applications and software assets. One of our major new clients in the last 12 months sent its RFP to 17 Atlassian Partners worldwide but concluded that Adaptavist really blew everyone else out of the water. There was not even a close second in terms of the response.
Delivering true partnership
"Being the most Technically Excellent partner in the Atlassian eco-system really tops off a great year for us," says Simon Haighton-Williams, Adaptavist's CEO. "It speaks volumes about the trust that our clients and Atlassian put in us to deliver the maximum possible value from their software. Without clients sharing their challenges and goals and trusting us to deliver the right tools and processes, we wouldn't be in a position to win this type of award."
"It's also a recognition of our position as true partners, we aren't just there to sell licenses and maintain software, our clients see that we're on the journey with them. Their problems are our problems and they see that we can help develop and deliver a shared vision of their application lifecycle."
"Adaptavist has been a strong ecosystem partner for many years," says Atlassian's President, Jay Simons. "The work they do with some of our largest and most complex Atlassian customers is by all accounts superb. They've evolved and adapted with our products and continue to demonstrate the strength of our ecosystem and Expert partners."
