Finalists announced in European IT and Software Excellence Awards 2016

The finalists for the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2016 (www.iteawards.com) - 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 86 companies from 21 European countries have made the finals. The winners will be announced at the European IT & Software Excellence 2016 Awards Dinner at the Lancaster London Hotel, on 14th April 2016.


Now in their 8th year, this year’s European IT & Software Excellence Awards attracted over 400 entries from more than 31 countries. The awards are given for IT solutions that get to the heart of customer issues, delivering better business, a clearer understanding of data, and more efficient and profitable outcomes. The judges, with many decades of experience of IT industry involvement between them, have arrived at a list of finalists that they believe truly reflects both the strength of Europe's IT industry and some of the changes in the direction occurring within it.

John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa, who heads the judges' panel says: “This year has seen more entries than ever, and an even wider spread of project types – from mobility, security and management to software-as-a-service packages for key vertical markets, and from data-driven systems using the new power of analytics to others which effectively replace costly old systems with new and far more efficient apps, increasingly driven in the cloud. The result is the best-ever advertisement for the capabilities of European IT, and we could not help but be impressed by the skills on display and the effort that has gone into effective IT delivery.”

The award winners will be announced on April 14 at a gala dinner and awards ceremony following the day-long European Software and Solutions Summit 2016 (www.eusss.com ) where director-level representatives of leading ISVs and Solution Providers will meet with hardware, software and service organisations to discuss some of the changes impacting the sector and to develop business relationships.
