The support systems for the European IT and Software Excellence Awards will be in place continuously over the break, says IT Europa. Anyone looking for answers or advice can email for support, including questions as to timings, categories or qualification (the most common query is 'does it have to be a European project?' The answer is that there just needs to be a European connection - customer, provider, project or supplier).
“We expect to have another great set of entries, revealing just how solid is the work being done in Europe at present. From large e-government schemes to small SMB-focused apps, there is some new thinking apparent in the way IT is being offered to all sorts of industries and organisations,” says John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa and chair of the judges. “We expect the usual rush around the break, when vendors gear up their email requests for support from their channel to nominate them, and when the channels, who we know have been very busy this year, find time to submit their projects and nominations.”
With expansion of the cloud solutions area into enterprise and SMB, and with hybrid categories appearing for the first time, the judges will be evaluating some very exciting projects, he added.
Entering the European IT & Software Excellence Awards is completely free. All entries must be submitted to by the 25th of January 2019. And to make it even easier, there is now an entry tips guide for download which highlights what the judges are looking for available here.
The guide also identifies the way in which entering can be used to generate great publicity by using local and national media, plus contacting customers and potential customers through marketing.
This year the Awards are co-located with the first channel specific security conference Channel-Sec, held on March 14 in London’s Royal Garden Hotel.
