Events & Awards 2017
We recently attended the UK IT Industry Awards, having been shortlisted for the UK Innovation and Entrepreneurship Award. It was a brilliant night and a chance to rub shoulders with some of the biggest players in the industry, which got us thinking about what a great year it has been to date.
European Software Excellence Awards
We’re still buzzing off the back of winning the Big Data, IoT or Analytics Solutions Provider of the Year category at the IT Europa European IT & Software Excellence Awards earlier in the year – an internationally recognised ceremony! We entered this award with our customer Parcelforce, which has been a customer of ours now for eight years.
National Technology Awards
The National Technology Awards prides itself on the celebration and promotion of pioneering new technology along with heightening standards to continuously encourage excellence.
We are honoured to have not only won a National Technology Award but to have been finalists alongside Entire Data, Financial Times and FoundIt!, and to share the success of continued innovation within our industry.
Cloud Computing Excellence Awards
Earlier in the year, we announced that Zizo had been named a finalist in the Cloud Computing Excellence Awards 2017 categories of Cloud Analytics Product of the Year and Best Cloud Project. While on this occasion we narrowly missed taking home the trophy, as an SME technology company, we were extremely pleased to be up against the likes of such big organisations like Microsoft and IBM. It’s great that Zizo continues to be acknowledged alongside these industry heavyweights.
UK Technology Awards
We were also shortlisted for an award at this year’s UK Tech Awards! The awards celebrate success and aim to raise the profile of the UK tech community. PcW nominated Zizo for the Tech Innovation of the Year Award and the winner was announced at the ceremony on Thursday 2nd November – we didn’t make it as a finalist but congratulation to the winners!
UK IT Industry Awards
We were also shortlisted for the 2017 UK IT Industry Awards for the UK Innovation and Entrepreneurship Award, following last year’s win! The Awards are run by Computing and BCS - The Chartered Institute for IT, two influential industry bodies, providing businesses with the ability to majorly boost their business profiles and opportunities.
Earlier on in the year, we attended the Retail Business Technology Expo (RBTE) – Europe’s biggest and fastest growing annual event for retail and hospitality. Our as-a-Service cloud based solution is used by some of the best, including IBM, Intel and Dell.
Intel Data Center and Cloud Summit – October 2018
We were invited by Intel to attend its latest Data Center and Cloud Summit as one of their chosen partners. It’s great to be considered for such an event, which is invite only. On the day, we’re looking forward to presenting how Zizo as a technology platform uses the latest Intel technology to drive improved performance and capability. This will be our 8th Intel event since joining Intel’s program for accelerated cloud adoption, which we announced last year.
Onwards and upwards!
