[We Partner] OVHcloud and Sopra Steria receive EMEA VMware 2023 Partner Collaboration Award


OVHcloud, the European cloud leader, today announced it has been awarded the 2023 VMware Partner Collaboration Award for EMEA with Sopra Steria as part of VMware’s annual Partner Achievement Awards.

This award recognizes the collaboration between OVHcloud, Sopra Steria and VMware to deliver high-value, tailored solutions to customers. More specifically, it recognizes a strong partnership that resulted in the creation of Sopra Steria’s Trusted Digital Platform. This sovereign platform has received the Open Trusted Cloud label from OVHcloud and is secured, hosted and operated in Europe on OVHcloud infrastructure. It aims to accelerate digital transformation within the public sector but also in sectors like energy or healthcare with sovereignty being a key requirement for sensitive data.

OVHcloud and Sopra Steria are hence recognized by VMware for their collaborative spirit and commitment to helping customers, public or private, benefiting from the highest level of innovation speeding up their digital transformation, when developing and moving cloud native apps to production environments.

Customer success in multi-cloud depends on a connected ecosystem. Neither VMware nor any single partner can solve all a customer’s needs alone,” said Petra Heinrich Liedtke, VMware. “Encouraging partners to work together is one of our key business priorities to create customers for life. OVHcloud and Sopra Steria are demonstrating a commitment to innovating for the multi-cloud era by identifying areas of collaboration in service of customer needs and bringing together partners with complementary skills to deliver exceptional value.
