Now entering its seventh year, the Cloud Awards celebrate excellence and innovation in the rapid-growth cloud computing market. More than 300 organizations from around the globe submitted for this year’s award, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. The entrants range from start-ups to large organizations and also include government bodies.
“Today’s digital economy is increasingly focused on human-to-machine and machine-to-machine interactions. Whether it’s bots, AI or IoT, the need for state-of-the art, secure and enabling cloud platforms has never been greater,” said Paul Pluschkell, Kandy founder and CEO and EVP of Strategy, GENBAND. “We’re delighted that the judges have placed us among the top providers, especially in such a competitive year.”
Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson added, “In our sixth year of recognizing and celebrating excellence and innovation in the cloud the standard of entries has been staggering. This high level of excellence is reflected in the size of organization we are seeing enter – from start-ups to blue chips, and everything in between. But it’s also the sheer global presence of cloud technologies, and innovators outside of the US that have started to become more prominent this year.”
Final winners will be announced Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
