I am very delighted ITQ was recognized with the VMware Partner Innovation Award in the category Partner Professional Services (PPSP) for EMEA, at the VMware Partner Leadership Summit’, says Francisco Perez van der Oord, CEO ITQ.
He continues: ‘This was a great honour for ITQ and a recognition of the investment we made into VMware competencies, the hard work delivered by the ITQ team and the excellent cooperation with VMware.’


Although ITQ has also delivered various successful projects abroad (up to the Middle East region), the primary target market has always been The Netherlands. Up till now. Since a few years already, we have been thinking about expanding our reach further into the Benelux region in order to better align with the VMware Benelux organization.

As per February 1st, 2018, ITQ will open a branch in Leuven, Belgium, with the objective to build a local team of technical consultants specialized in VMware technologies to cover the Belgian and Luxembourg market.

‘We are not going to the World Championship football in 2018, we prefer to go to Belgium’, jokes Francisco. On a more serious note, he continues: ’Expanding our activities across the entire Benelux region makes a lot of sense. Over time, this team will also build the competencies in the 5 pillars of ITQ: Software-Defined Data Center, Hybrid cloud, End-User Computing, Cloud-Native Apps and IT Transformation Services. This also creates opportunities for experienced and passionate VMware engineers, consultants or architects to join the ITQ team.’

Since 1999 I am part of the IT world. The first few years as a field engineer working with SBC products like WinFrame and MetaFrame and later with TS/RDS based solutions. In 2005 I had my first experience with VMware products and since then I got hooked. Especially when I saw my first vMotion :) Late 2013, it was time to make a career change. But what? Actually, it was kind-of easy. Mix Server Virtualization with SBC and Application Virtualization and what do you get? The answer is simple, End-User Computing. I applied for a job at ITQ as a Virtualization Consultant, got hired and took my career to a next level. The 3 year after that were a rollercoaster. vExpert since 2015, VCIX/VCAP's (5/6) on Data Center and Desktop & Mobility, VMware EUC Champion awards and I achieved my ultimate goal: VCDX-DTM. As EUC is going through a revolution with a lot of new tech that makes it more agile, robust, scalable, secure, manageable and pretty awesome, my main focus is on EUC. But with a passion for technology, I won't hesitate if any other cool project comes by. If you like to read more about me, you can do so on my personal blog vHojan.nl
