Bull ranked Number One for Storage services by 2,000 leading IT managers in the Netherlands
Bull has been named Number One in Storage Services by a panel of 2,000 leading IT professionals in Holland. The selection was based on the following criteria: know-how, price, quality of service, reliability, adherence to agreed timescales, adherence to proposed budget and communication - with the average in the last column. Most interestingly, Bull achieved the highest marks in all categories.
In the Netherland, Bull is the most appreciated service provider that advises on the implementation of storage solutions. This is the conclusion of a large scale survey carried out by TNS Nipo for Dutch IT magazine Computable among almost two thousand IT directors and professionals. Bull’s scores for storage services averaged 7.5 (on a scale from 1-10), coming out ahead of its competitors, notably Hewlett Packard (7.3) and IBM (7.1). When it came to knowledge about storage, all three achieved the same score: 7.7, well above Fujitsu Services (7.1) awarded number 4 on the list. Bull’s Number One spot is especially due to the high marks that respondents gave for adhering to agreed timescales and for way it communicates with customers. For the latter, Bull achieved an impressive 7.6.
"With the proliferation of data, which is an exponential and inescapable phenomenon, smart storage is becoming a key weapon in increasing competitiveness and reducing energy consumption. Thanks to new operating modes, we are able to help our customers manage and transform their knowledge capital into tangible added value. Thanks to our expertise, storage is one of the key growth engines for Bull and I am particularly proud to be ranked by leading IT managers as the Number One for Storage services in this country. This is the reward for our investments in this area, and for the numerous storage projects we have successfully delivered this year,” commented Dick Fens, CEO of Bull Netherlands.
