Hat trick at VMware Nordic awards
At a pan-Nordic ceremony on March 22, the cloud computing and virtualization technology company VMware awarded Tietoevry as “Cloud Partner of the Year”. Alberto Valero, Head of Technology and Growth at Tietoevry Connect, was awarded as “Partner Personality of the Year”. Furthermore, the company won the category “Most Committed Partner” in Finland.
The motivation for the prestigious Cloud partner award was:
“Your success is our success - you have made a significant impact within the managed service space. Together with VMware, Tietoevry has built and implemented a Sovereign Cloud platform and services for Nordic customers and ensured that all data stays on sovereign soil. Their work is fundamental and paves the way to overcome the increasing data security regulations and needs for the whole Nordic customer base. Their solution simplifies the complexities of digital operations, ensuring the right data is where it needs to be, while driving opportunity, innovation, and growth. They have taken huge responsibility on taking this important topic forward and they are delivering the message fearlessly to the Nordic region.”

“I’m thrilled that VMware recognizes our intensive work with our Sovereign Cloud platform that enables our customers to have full control over their data with local governance and global reach and ensuring that it is sovereign and secure. We will continue to drive innovation and growth in this area as we enable businesses and organizations to gain a greater autonomy over their digital assets,” says Alberto Valero, Head of Technology & Growth, Tietoevry Connect.
Alberto Valero himself was awarded for his educative and innovative mindset with the following motivation:
“You personally make a difference in the collaboration with VMware. You educate, you evolve and you engage. Alberto Valero brings true value to our community. Always leading with a VMware message, not only in the Nordics but in Europe as well. With a foot in the future, he is a trusted advisor inspiring and educating in all areas of cloud. He also has a warm aura, which is not always easy to find in a top leadership role.”
“I’m naturally very honored, says Alberto Valero. To co-create with partners and customers is what really drives me forward and makes me want to challenge current perceptions and expand the boundaries.”
Finally, Tietoevry won the category “Most Committed Partner”, concluding a great “hat trick” of cloud related awards, where key people from Tietoevry Connect participated in the simultaneously arranged ceremonies in Helsinki, Oslo and Stockholm.
