Last week, the International Cloud Computing Program Announced a shortlist for the 2015-2016 Cloud Awards, and we are excited be on it.

The Cloud Awards program selects winners from around the world for excellence and innovation in cloud computing. To make the shortlist against such competition represents the level of service and commitment to our customers we strive to achieve, and it’s a special honor for Signiant to be recognized in the Best SaaS category. This year’s other award categories include Data Innovation of the Year, “Best in Mobile” Cloud Solution and Most Promising Start-Up.

Reflecting on five years running the program, Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said:

“In our fifth year of recognizing the best of the best – not just the monoliths within the space, but all of the cloud organizations which offer real innovation and value to their users – we are still delighted to find new names pushing hard, and established names responding by pushing the envelope still harder. The Cloud is all about adding value in a lean, cost-effective way, utilizing the latest technologies and methodologies to benefit the end user. That’s what we are continuing to see in 2015.

“What’s even more exciting is that we’re still seeing more applicants in 2015 from much farther afield than the USA – Europe, Canada, the UK, Australia, Asia. It’s an exciting time – as one of the oldest and best-established recognition platforms for innovation and excellence in the cloud, this is the place to be. We have a tireless quest to throw light on best-of-breed cloud performers. Watch this space to see who our judges have selected as the winners, but know that every organization on the shortlist is worthy of your time.”

Wish us luck, the final winners will be announced on Thursday, January 28 2016!
