The Best of the Best of the BestYou may not remember it, but there’s a line in the movie Men in Black where a character opposite of Will Smith says, “We’re here because you’re looking for the best of the best of the best, sir!”

This line came to mind as we were preparing for the EMC Enterprise Content Division (ECD) Partner Awards Dinner this week at Momentum at EMC World.

It’s no secret that our partner ecosystem is the best in the content management industry. Many of the solutions that they’ve built on our products have transformed the way that organizations – ones that you know or even work for – do business. They’ve helped these organizations thrive, and ultimately do amazing things like save lives and preserve historic documents. And they’ve helped EMC ECD be named a “Visionary” in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for BPM-Platform-Based Case Management Frameworks.

These partners, and those that resell and implement our solutions, are an extension of our EMC family. Many of them have been with us a good portion of our 25 years and are dedicated to seeing that our mutual customers are successful (by the way, you can help us celebrate our 25th Silver Anniversary by supporting charity: water).

In particular, I’d like to highlight International Turnkey Systems (ITS), the winner of our President’s Award for Customer Satisfaction. Both Rohit and I were impressed by ITS and their many stellar references. Consistent throughout was the emphasis on clear, dependable communications and thorough expectation setting. It was apparent that this partner is as passionate about having truly delighted customers as EMC is.

Although it was difficult to acknowledge just a few out of this fantastic ecosystem, I’m proud to announce the “best of the best of the best” and share my sincerest appreciation for all that they do.

Please join me in congratulating these partners on their tremendous effort and successes!
