Alex Hilton, CEO of the Cloud Industry Forum, said: “We first established the UK Cloud Awards last year with the aim of recognising and celebrating excellence within the UK Cloud industry. The standard of the entries, and ultimate winners, speaks volumes about tech success and innovation in the UK, and serves as a reminder of the dynamic and forward-looking industry we have in this country. I’d like to thank all those that took part in this year’s awards and to offer my congratulations to the ultimate winners.”

Paul Franklin, Publisher at Cloud Pro and IT Pro, added: “A lot of hard work went into organising the UK Cloud Awards 2015, and we’re hugely thankful to our sponsors, HP Helion, Microsoft and Ingram Micro Cloud. We received an extremely high level of interest in this year’s awards and it’s fair to say that we have earned a place in the tech industry’s award calendar. We fully intend to bring the UK Cloud Awards back for 2016, so watch this space.”
