(openPR) - International Cloud Computing Awards Celebrate Excellence in the Field of Cloud Computing|
LONDON – 13 December 2012 – SkyDox, a leading provider of a cloud-enabled file sharing and collaboration platform for cross-functional and distributed teams, has been shortlisted in the inaugural 2012 Cloud Awards Program in the categories of Most Promising Start-Up and Web Services Excellence.
The Cloud Awards recognize and celebrate industry leaders and pioneers in the field of cloud computing. Categories include B2B Customer Strategy, Best Cloud Infrastructure, Data Innovation of the Year, Developer of the Year, Most Promising Start-Up, Best Platform as a Service, Security Innovation, Best Software as a Service and Web Services Excellence.
The cloud computing awards program is open internationally across the US and EMEA regions and accepts entries from organizations of any size.
Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: “We have seen a remarkable calibre of organizations enter the program and the Cloud Awards team is truly honored to judge them.
“Cloud computing has faced off many detractors. Some commentators have expressed concerns over security, scalability, and reliability. Now we’re seeing consumer advertisements name-dropping ‘The Cloud,’ we know it’s here to stay. But beyond the hype and the buzz, what does cloud computing have to offer?
“The organizations which have taken part in the 2012 Cloud Awards program demonstrate exactly what cloud computing has to give. We’ve seen world-leading organizations spring up literally overnight to offer faster, more capable and cost-effective solutions than previously imagined. We’ve seen markets become so disrupted, they’re unrecognizable. And we’ve seen all of this when the cloud computing industry is still in its infancy. We can’t wait to see what we get in our in-trays in 2012 and 2013, let alone 2025.”
Barrie Hadfield, SkyDox founder and CTO, said: “The Cloud Awards further reinforce what we are already hearing from the market. We know enterprise customers are looking for ways to integrate the innovations of cloud-based technology into the workplace. At SkyDox, we’re proud to be leading the market in this direction, toward cloud-enabled collaboration solutions that are designed specifically for the enterprise. We’re honored to be recognized for this by the Cloud Awards.”
Final winners will be announced on Tuesday, January 10, 2012.
The Cloud Awards (www.cloud-awards.com/) will return in 2012-13 for a fresh program seeking notable excellence in the field of cloud computing.
