Winners of the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2016 announced

IT Europa, the leading European IT publisher and market intelligence organisation, has announced the winners of the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2016 - the pan-European awards event for ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators and their vendor and distributor partners. The finalists were honoured at a celebration dinner at the London Lancaster Hotel.

In their eighth year, the European IT & Software Excellence Awards attracted over 400 entries from more than 31 countries. A number of entries demonstrated how carefully the industry has been listening to its clients and building solutions that really do make a difference. The winners ranged from a low maintenance self-service web portal which became the standard national online platform for collecting structured data across all UK schools to a consultant's global mobile management system and a taxi service system in Paris. Winners were chosen from 86 finalists representing 21 countries.

With so many high-scoring entries, choosing outright winners in each category was particularly hard this year, says judges' panel chair John Garratt, editor of IT Europa. “It is also fascinating to see how the entries reflect the changes in the industry; previous years have seen concentrations of cloud and then SaaS solutions; this year we have had many entries showing solutions based on data and its management and analysis. This shows how responsive the industry is, particularly among the software developers and ISVs who are so determined to deliver results for their clients. The awards show that there is a real case for considering IT as a success and encouraging even more investment in what it can offer.”
