European IT Excellence Awards 2012 finalists announced

  • 49 companies from 17 countries represented

[London, 19 April 2012] The finalists for the European IT Excellence Awards 2012 - the leading pan-European awards event for Solution Provider and Systems Integrator channels - were announced today by IT Europa. A total of 49 companies from 17 European countries have made the finals. The winners will be announced at the European IT Excellence 2012 Awards Dinner at the Sheraton Park Lane Hotel, London on 30th May 2012.

The European IT Excellence Awards are the only pan-European awards which recognise the crucial role that Solution Providers and Systems Integrators play in the delivery of real world solutions, and attracted entries from 23 countries. Entries were submitted by the Solution Providers and Systems Integrators 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 the European IT channel," 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. "Each year we are encouraged by the tremendous enthusiasm from the channel for such an awards event. We were inundated with enquiries, ranging from requests for advice on how to make a good entry to emails of support for what we were doing with the event. What is so exciting and uplifting is the real skill and ingenuity shown by the companies in many of the solutions. Our judges have a lot of experience in the IT industry and sitting on such judging panels, so to have such comments as 'superb' and 'incredible' from them was great to hear."

There were 12 categories for Solution Provider solutions from SMB to major enterprise and Government to Managed Service provision. As well as the Solution Provider categories, there are four supplier categories for which Solution Providers nominate their distributor, service provider or hardware and software supplier for the support they provide through their partner programs.

"The entries in the categories for suppliers showed that these companies have been putting a tremendous amount of effort into their channel development activities, particularly in helping partners accelerate their businesses through the recovering economic climate experienced in 2011," commented John Chapman. "The entries detailed the sales and marketing activities undertaken in partnership with the supplier and showed the results as far as new business development and market penetration."
