WSO2 Partner Awards: Rewarding Top Performers and Emerging Partners of 2021

2021 was another great year for WSO2. Although it was business as usual in the new norm, the results were exceptional. The company acquired 145 new customers and achieved revenue growth of 31% YoY. We started our journey towards radically simplifying the creation of digital experiences for our customers by introducing new cloud platforms. This gives us the flexibility to deploy products and solutions either on software as a service (SaaS), on private cloud, or on-premises and easily migrate between the options in the future.

Our partner program continued to bring significant results for us. As we look back at 2021, we are thankful to our partners who contributed towards this success.

  • We went past 200 partners globally.
  • Our partners accounted for 39% of our total revenue. 
  • Our partner network brought in an annual recurring revenue (ARR) of $25M in 2021, which is an impressive 61% increase from 2020. They also contributed 56% of our total net new ARR in 2021.
  • 55% of new logos acquired in 2021 were made possible through our partners.

To recognize and reward those who significantly contributed towards these accomplishments, we conferred 12 awards, including 4 top partner of the year awards, 4 emerging partner of the year awards, an IAM partner of the year award, an integration partner of the year award, an executive's choice award, and an award for deal of the year. While taking recommendations from our regional sales and channels teams, we focused on growth, new ARR, and new logos when evaluating partners this year. Our full list of award winners is given below.
