Solace, the leading enabler of event-driven architecture for real-time enterprises, announced today the recipients of the company’s Solace Partner Awards. The awards recognize the important role partners play in Solace’s mission to help enterprises make their business operations and customer interactions real-time through the power of event-driven architecture (EDA). According to a recent global EDA Survey, close to two-thirds of the 840 respondents (59%) agreed that finding the right strategic partner was among the top five keys to a successful EDA migration.
“Despite dealing with intense periods of supply chain outages, talent and skills shortages, and other market disruptions, our partner ecosystem have embraced these challenges as opportunities, and have played a significant role in helping deliver the power of EDA to our joint customers worldwide,” said Tim Wong, Chief Revenue Officer, Solace. “I congratulate our 2022 Partner Awards recipients and look forward to deepening these relationships further as we collaborate on enabling the real-time enterprise.”
