CDW has pledged its support for the work organisations are doing around cloud by signing up as the lead sponsor for this year’s UK Cloud Awards.
Established by the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) in association with Cloud Pro, the awards are designed to showcase and celebrate the most innovative providers, projects and individuals that are setting the benchmark in the UK cloud industry.
The window for making submissions is open now (with a special early bird discount running until the end of this week) until 22 February. An array of expert judges, led by Jez Back, founder of Erebus Technology Consulting, will be on hand to cast their votes on all entries, while the awards themselves will be held on 16 May at County Hall in London.
“As technology is increasingly the route to competitive advantage, the UK’s cloud industry has become a vital cog in the UK economy. The UK has emerged as a leading player on the global stage when it comes to cloud innovation, and the UK Cloud Awards present the perfect opportunity to celebrate and recognise these successes,” said Joel Berwitz, head of cloud services at CDW.
“We are delighted to be supporting this year’s awards and look forward to seeing which providers, projects and individuals will take home a prize on the night itself.”
Alex Hilton, CIF’s CEO, added: “The UK Cloud Awards are a way for the UK cloud industry to come together to reward and celebrate excellence in the cloud sector and wouldn’t be possible without the support of companies like CDW. We are honoured to have such a well-respected technology solutions provider supporting this year’s UK Cloud Awards as headline sponsor. Each year we see an increasing number of companies and individuals enter the awards and I am confident that this will be the most exciting awards yet.”
