WWT’s New B2B Innovation Platform Puts Cisco Partnership in a League of its Own

WWT’s new accelerated learning platform is strengthening the foundation of key partnerships and changing the game across technology verticals and industries.

November 7, 2019

WWT honored to receive prestigious Cisco Partner Summit Global award, recognizing us as Architectural Excellence Partner of the Year for Data Center.


It’s exciting times here at World Wide Technology (WWT).

We’ve reimagined how IT innovates by opening up one of the most robust technology ecosystems in the world — the Advanced Technology Center (ATC) — to customers and partners through a revamped wwt.com. By completely reconceptualizing our website as a B2B Innovation Platform, we’re delivering unrivaled value for IT practitioners and decision-makers alike through an array of launchable labs, workshops, briefings, assessments, trainings and more.

As excited as we are about the new platform, we’re even more eager to see what innovations trusted partners like Cisco can generate with it. While WWT customers have had access to the latest Cisco technologies in the ATC for years, Cisco sales and engineering teams now have streamlined access to accelerated learning opportunities and burgeoning tech communities focused on creating force multipliers of knowledge, speed and agility — all of which can be harnessed to drive deeper adoption of Cisco and other foundational technologies.

WWT and Cisco continue to build on a long history of collaboration, rooted in the jointly held vision of driving value while helping customers solve complex problems. This year, Cisco recognized WWT for our regional and theater work with the following awards:

In selecting award winners, Cisco considers innovative processes, architecture-led successes, strategic business outcome-focused programs, and a partner's ability to seize new opportunities and sales approaches. These awards are a testament to WWT’s commitment to being Cisco’s top-performing partner, as well as our leadership and expertise in the latest enterprise technologies.

A stronger Cisco partnership, year over year

Much of WWT's success is made possible by our commitment to growing relationships with key partners like Cisco, and continuous investment in and dedication to driving innovation. This is most visible via our new B2B Innovation Platform at wwt.com.
