Cloud Journey of the Year
With such a vast array of cloud offerings to choose from, and volumes of claims, counter-claims, technical material and promises to wade through, starting out or taking new directions in the cloud can be a daunting prospect. Notwithstanding, the “cloud” in all its forms touches nearly all IT delivery models, whether “public”, “private” or as a “hybrid”.
This Award will be presented to the organisation that can demonstrate an innovative or pioneering approach to cloud adoption that best matches business objectives meeting corporate requirements in terms of risk, availability and security.
- Be at least in part located in the relevant Awards region although the scope of the initiatives may be geographically wider
- Come into operation between 1st June 2014 and 31st May 2015
