11th July 2013:
The Winners of the 2013 EuroCloud Awards were announced today at a feature packed event at Baker Tilly's Farringdon Street offices. Here is a complete listing of the class finalists and winners:
1XTM International was singled out by the judges for a Special Award. In the opinion of the judges its deployment of Cloud throughout its advanced business model, transforming traditional translation processes, epitomises the nature and ethos of Cloud organisations EuroCloud Awards promote.
Our profound thanks to our independent panel of judges, Dr Richard Sykes (Chair, Cloud industry Forum), Max Cooter (Editor, CloudPro) and David Blacher (Head of Media & Technology Practice, Baker Tilly) for an otherwise thankless and nearly impossible task which they have performed with great professionalism, enthusiasm and a little midnight oil.
Our thanks to our Event Main Sponsor IBM, Media Sponsor CloudPro, co-sponsor diginomica and hosts Baker Tilly who together help make this event a beacon to the UK Cloud industry.
And of course we would like to thank everyone who entered this year’s competition, never has it been more true to say that we wish all could win. If what we have seen over the last few weeks is a snapshot of the state of the UK Cloud scene and the thoughtfulness and politeness of those who have been responsible for the submissions flood a reflection on the many who work here, then the UK Cloud is a pretty good place to be right now. Yes indeed, we all in EuroCloud give our particular thanks to those who have not made it to the shortlist. Clearly the judges had a very hard job to do.
The EuroCloud UK Awards provide a unique opportunity to highlight best practices, innovation and customer success achieved by providers of cloud services and products in the United Kingdom. Decided by an independent panel of judges, the UK awards are part of a pan-European competition running across Europe. The national champions will go forward to enter the Europe-wide EuroCloud Awards, the winners of which will be revealed at a special gala dinner at the annual EuroCloud Congress in Luxembourg on October 15th.
Entry to the EuroCloud UK Awards is free-of-charge and is open to all eligible cloud vendors operating in the UK. There is no requirement to be a member of EuroCloud. The closing date for entries is 24th June 2013 (*revised) and the UK winners will be announced at a special EuroCloud UK event in July.

Last year's winners included UK startups Adpoints, CentraStage and blur Group as well as EuroCloud UK members Zuora and Ping Identity, which went on to win the European award for best offering. "Winning the double for PingFederate 6.6 in 2012 was a great milestone." says Clare Rees, EMEA marketing director at Ping Identity. "Peer group recognition has a unique value – it's a gold-standard the market notices and understands."
