With three weeks remaining until the closing date for the entries, interest is growing regarding the UK Cloud Awards. Microsoft has become the second firm to sponsor the cloud awards, after Ingram Micro announced itself as a supporter of the event. This was confirmed after contacting the Microsoft support center. This is UK’s first award that is solely dedicated to cloud.
The support from Microsoft Corporation is yet another endorsement for the awards. The judges in the Award committee have received more than 30 entries and they are expecting a flood of entries in the next few weeks. Entries for the award will close on 24th of January. These entries can be submitted through the awards website. In contrast to some of the other similar awards, the companies are not charged for their entries for the award.
Matt Eckersall, who is the director of hosting, Microsoft UK, said, “Microsoft has been a formal member of the Cloud Industry Forum since 2011, and are fully supportive of its aspirations to champion the adoption of cloud services and improve consumer confidence in the cloud. In many ways the UK Cloud Awards are an extension of this mission and we are very pleased to be able to lend our support.”
The UK Cloud Awards that is jointly organized by Cloud Pro, which is the Cloud Industry Forum and tech UK, has been set up to reward the providers, individuals and customers who are leading the way. The support of Microsoft has been welcomed by the organizers of the award. Alex Hilton, who is the CEO of CIF said, “Microsoft’s influence and impact on the cloud industry is undeniable so we are delighted that they have signed up to support the first UK Cloud Awards. The UK cloud industry has a fantastic track record of innovation and these awards offer the opportunity to reward the leading cloud vendors and highlight the significant cloud successes over the past year.”
