European Software Excellence Awards 2012 finalists announced

  • 36 companies from 14 countries represented

[London, 25 January 2012] The finalists for the European Software Excellence Awards 2012 - the leading pan-European awards event for ISV and Software Developer channels - were announced today by IT Europa. A total of 36 companies from 14 European countries have made the finals. The winners will be announced at the European Software Excellence 2012 Awards Dinner at the Grand Hyatt, Berlin on 1st March 2012.

The European Software Excellence Awards are the first pan-European awards which recognise the crucial role that Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and Software Developers play in the delivery of real world solutions, and attracted entries from 18 countries. Entries were submitted by ISVs and Software Developers describing the solution provided. Each entry had to be supported by an endorsement by the client.

"The quality of entries was extremely high and demonstrated the depth of talent in the software community across Europe," stated Alan Norman, Managing Director of IT Europa. "Finalists have come from right across Europe with Central and Eastern European countries well represented."

"The judges were impressed with the quality of all the entries and the obvious work that had gone into preparing them," stated John Chapman, Editorial Director at IT Europa. "There is tremendous enthusiasm from the software channel for such an awards event. We were inundated with enquiries, ranging from requests for advice on how to make a good entry to emails of support for what we were doing with the event. What is so exciting and uplifting is the real skill and ingenuity shown by the companies in many of the solutions. Our judges have a lot of experience in the IT industry and sitting on such judging panels, so to have such comments as 'what a superb solution' and 'transformational' from them was incredible to hear."

There were 12 ISV categories for software-based solutions for which the ISV has written the bulk of the solution itself. As well as the ISV categories, there are two supplier categories for which ISVs nominate their developer platform or delivery platform supplier for the support they provide through their ISV programs.

"The entries in the categories for suppliers, showed that these companies have been putting a tremendous amount of effort into their ISV development activities, particularly in helping partners accelerate their businesses through the recovering economic climate experienced in 2011," commented John Chapman. "The entries detailed the sales and marketing activities undertaken in partnership with the supplier and showed the results as far as new business development and market penetration."

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
