Cloud Innovations award Navisite top prize

Sean McAvan

Rich in culture, history and fine dining, Rome was the venue for this year’s Cloud Innovation Awards where Navisite was honoured with the top ‘Cloud and Datacentre Solution’ prize. A pan-European award, the prize demonstrates Navisite’s leading cloud services in not only the UK, but across the continent.

We’re particularly proud to win at NetEvents’ Cloud Innovation Awards because of its high reputation within the IT industry. Judged by “an independent panel of highly respected judges including IT professionals, industry gurus, the tech investment community…plus leading technology press and industry analysts from around the globe”, it’s an especial honour to have been selected by this panel.

Our hybrid cloud and managed service offerings were at the core of our award entry. Today’s businesses are no longer asking whether or not to migrate to the cloud, they’re asking how and to what extent. In answering the how, it’s important for us to recognise that cloud environments are not a ‘one-size-fits-all,’ but need to align with business goals, performance requirements and compliance needs.

This is particularly important when creating and managing a hybrid environment. My colleague, Navisite CTO David Grimes, likes to explain that what we offer our clients is a selection of ‘LEGO block’ tools and solutions that they can pick and choose from for us to build an environment that meets their specific needs.
