You’re doing things your way

As a Brocade partner, you’re demonstrating a commitment to innovation, next-generation technology, and customer successes today, and every day.

In short, you’re a Status Quo Breaker – and we’re proud of it.

Tell us how you do it – and win

How did you or your organization go against convention with a status-quo-breaking approach to a sale? What did you do that challenged everyday thinking, or looked past the obvious, to deliver the solution your customer really needed? We’re on the look-out for stories of original thinking, of not taking ‘no’ as the final answer, and of going against the grain. Whether it was in your unique targeting, advertising, solution packaging or salesmanship, or in the way you secured the deal.

Examples could include: Challenging a customer to understand the full business impact of their legacy network; developing a powerful new case study that demonstrates the benefits of network transformation; leading a major design win; stepping out of your comfort zone to launch a cloud practice – these are all examples of going against the status quo and making tomorrow’s network possible today.

We want to hear your status-quo-breaking story!
