Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, was voted ‘The Most Innovative Data Centre Cooling Company of the Year’ at the Titans of Tech Africa Awards for the 19th consecutive year.
The Titans of Tech Awards, sometimes known as the ‘Grammys’ of the Nigerian tech industry, honor the movers and shakers in the local sector, recognizing both organizations and individuals in the vanguard of encouraging technology uptake and usage in Nigeria and across the African continent.
Solving recognized technology problems, meeting network requirements, optimizing service and performance, and enhancing customer service were key criteria for award winners, as were overall quality of innovation, contribution to ICT advancement, originality and vision, potential involvement in positive industry growth and service, market success, and contribution to end-user quality-of-experience and service efficiency.
The award judges also considered innovation and achievement, integrity and consistency, influence, community involvement, an expansion plan, professional performance, and local content to be major deciding elements.
“Feedback from the Titans of Tech Africa judging panel was that Vertiv has been recognized for its tech-driven critical solutions, particularly our all-in-one solution combining power, cooling, monitoring, and racks,” says Gbenga Adebowale, enterprise sales director for Central Africa at Vertiv. “Our track record of innovation, consistency, and dedication to quality were also lauded.”
“Furthermore, Vertiv’s commitment to continually add value to our customers’ operations, as well as our strong drive to meet and exceed client expectations and reliable delivery, all played a role in our winning this award.
“Vertiv is thrilled to have received the title of Most Innovative Data Center Cooling Company of the Year,” he continues. “As a business, we have placed serious focus on the African region, and Nigeria is a critical country for us.
“This recognition from the Titans of Tech Awards emphasizes our efforts in helping local businesses tackle their data centre cooling challenges, through Vertiv’s Thermal Management solutions offering, and is something that we will continue to do into the future. We would like to extend our gratitude not only to the Titans of Tech Awards judges for placing Vertiv as the leader in this space, but also to our local customers and partners for their continued support,” Adebowale concludes.
