Business travel can sometimes be more obligation than enjoyment. There’s always the chance of flight delays and other transportation snafus, long days, and often, the expectation of keeping up with your day job while being out of the office for work. But sometimes there’s that special business trip you look forward to!
That’s how we feel about the annual Ingram ICE event. “ICE” stands for Ingram Cognos Elite and it’s an exclusive program for IBM business partners who demonstrate expertise in selling IBM Cognos solutions. Every year, this event is held in a different location. This year, the ICE event took place in sunny Key Largo, Florida which is always a fun place to have a business trip. To make it even more exciting, this was the second year in a row that Revelwood was named the Ingram Micro IBM Analytics Growth Partner of the Year!
“Revelwood has done an incredible job growing their IBM analytics business through portfolio expansion and new client acquisition,” said David Hino, senior vendor business manager for IBM Software, Ingram Micro. “They are part of an elite group of Ingram Micro and IBM partners that many could learn from.”

Our CEO, Ken Wolf, was on-hand to accept the award, but it was earned by the entire Revelwood team. As Ken said in our press release, “Our team earned this award because we have continued to grow our established practice in financial and operational analytics, while also building a successful and award-winning practice in customer analytics and artificial intelligence.” As you can see from the photo, Ken had a great time at the event!
