Attenda earn Sun Microsystems’ Service Provider of the Year award

London, 22 September 2004 – Attenda, Europe’s leading specialist in operating enterprise and Internet applications won the Sun Microsystems’ Service Provider of the Year award. The award recognises Attenda’s investment in the Sun Services Partnership as well as exceptional revenue growth during the past 12 months and was presented at Sun’s annual iForce Partner Awards Ceremony on 9th September. Other companies short-listed in the category were Energis and Savvis.

Since embracing the Sun platform more than two years ago, Attenda has built up considerable experience and knowledge around Sun’s offerings and has taken a leadership stance around Sun’s innovative Java Enterprise System. Significant client wins have included Avis Europe, 3, Hiscox and Sun Microsystems themselves. Attenda’s SunTone accreditation was achieved by Attenda in record time, due primarily to the company fully embracing the ITIL process framework for IT service management more than four years ago.

Gary Nugent, iForce Partner & mid market director said, “Our partner awards give Sun the opportunity to recognise the role that our partners play in our success. Attenda have consistently delivered exceptional service quality to our mutual clients and we look forward to an even closer working relationship with Attenda in the years to come.”

David Godwin, VP Sales for Attenda added, “Attenda are delighted to win this award in recognition of our commitment to the Sun platform. Our industry leading operations platform, Attenda M.O., enables us to deliver unparalleled service levels and significant cost savings to our clients. The award will give further confidence to both new and existing clients as to the service quality that they can expect when they select Attenda.”
