European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2013 finalists announced

  • 64 companies from 15 countries represented

[London, 31 January 2013] The finalists for the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2013 - 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 64 companies from 15 European countries have made the finals. The winners will be announced at the European IT & Software Excellence 2013 Awards Dinner at the Lancaster London Hotel, on 13th March 2013.

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 24 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. "Finalists have come from right across Europe with Central and Eastern European countries well represented."

"The judges were impressed with the quality of all the entries and the obvious work that had gone into preparing them," stated John Chapman, Editorial Director at IT Europa. "There has been tremendous enthusiasm from the channel for this event and we received nearly twice as many entries this year despite the difficult trading period across Europe. The quality of entries was also much higher, with some superb entries particularly in the new categories of Business Intelligence and Analytics, and Communications and Mobility."

There were nine categories for ISVs and eight 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.
