The Beacon Awards are a central and vital element of IBM’s business partner recognition program. Announced at the IBM PartnerWorld Leadership Conference (held this year in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States) and selected by leading industry influencers and IBM executives from among hundreds of nominations, IBM Beacon Awards recognize a small number of IBM business partners that have demonstrated business excellence in delivering IBM-based solutions resulting in client transformation and business growth. This year’s awards recognized business partner achievements in 27 award categories.
“The IBM Beacon Awards were established more than a dozen years ago to recognize business partners globally for their excellence and innovative solutions based on IBM technology,” said Mark Hennessy, general manager, IBM Global Business Partners & Midmarket. “Our winners are business partners that have delivered unique and innovative solutions that raise the standard for business excellence, bringing client value. We congratulate Esri on winning the Beacon Award for Best Industry Solutions for Government and demonstrating its ability to provide value by creating Esri Maps for IBM Cognos
