About our award

The Managed Service Solution of the Year Award recognises excellence in the support of IT infrastructure, and provision of hosted or Cloud based IT services as opposed to an on premise based solution.

All entries in the category were required to describe a real-world client scenario with a focus on how the solution met their needs. With many decades of experience in IT between them, the judges were not only looking for a company who were able to demonstrate how these needs were met, but able to prove how service level agreements (SLA’s) are not only monitored, but guaranteed.

John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa and head of the judge’s panel said:

“Not only did we have a record number of entries and votes from the industry, but the quality was even higher than previous years and confirms our view that Europe has entered a new era of IT confidence. It is up to us as an industry to take these ideas out to the market, to show the general media, politicians and governments that the industry is not all about security threats and scare stories, but regularly delivers great productivity gains to ordinary businesses and people. The evidence is in the projects that we have highlighted with our selection of finalists and winners.”
