European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2014 finalists announced

  • 81 companies from 16 countries represented

[London, 7 February 2014] The finalists for the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2014 - the leading pan-European awards for ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators and their vendor and distributor partners - were announced today by IT Europa. A total of 81 companies from 16 European countries have made the finals. The winners will be announced at the European IT & Software Excellence 2014 Awards Dinner at the Lancaster London Hotel, on 26th March 2014.

The European IT & Software Excellence Awards are the only pan-European awards which recognise the crucial role that ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators play in the delivery of real world solutions, and attracted entries from 25 countries. Entries were submitted by the ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators themselves describing the solution provided. Each entry had to be supported by an endorsement by the client.

"The quality of entries was extremely high and demonstrated the depth of talent in European IT and Telecoms channels," stated Alan Norman, Managing Director of IT Europa. "We had a record number of entries this year the finalists have come from right across Europe, with Central and Eastern European countries well represented."

"There was a definite shift in the nature of the entries this year, with real-world applications delivering clear returns, even in some sophisticated and demanding environments. I'd like to thank all the entrants for their hard work and enthusiasm in preparing them," says John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa. "The way software is now such a fundamental part of the total IT offering, and how much better its use, integration and future possibilities are presented in the solutions this year, impressed the judges."

There were nine categories for ISVs and eleven categories for Solution Provider solutions spanning all major customer and solution segments, from SMB to large enterprises and the public sector. In addition to the ISV and Solution Provider categories, there are five supplier categories for which ISVs and Solution Providers have nominated distributors, hardware and software suppliers, communications, hosting or business services providers for the support they have provided through their partner programmes.
