Interoute Application Management finalist in BCS & Computing IT Industry Awards 2012

Interoute competes for title of Cloud Provider of the Year

London, 14 September 2012 - Interoute Application Management, the application managed services specialist and progressive cloud services provider, has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Cloud Provider of the Year category of the BCS & Computing IT Industry Awards 2012. The IAM SaaS Acceleration Programme for ISVs has been selected in the first round of judging to compete in the Technology Excellence Section of the awards, recognising its commitment to giving Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) the ability to deliver a robust, best practice SaaS solution to their clients.

The IAM SaaS Acceleration Programme has been designed to reduce the time to market for ISVs with technical and commercial support enabling them to deliver a SaaS solution with minimal re-engineering and no re-skilling. ISVs are also able to provide a multi-tenanted application without having to re-architect their own application.

The BCS & Computing UK IT Industry Awards are a platform for the entire profession to celebrate best practice, innovation and excellence. IAM will now compete to win the title in this category with a presentation to an expert judging panel at the end of September. The winners will then be announced at an awards ceremony on 14 November.

David Clarke MBE, Chief Executive Officer, BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, says: "Congratulations to the finalists; they can be proud of their achievements in reaching this stage of our prestigious Awards. Through the Awards we aim to demonstrate not only the innovation and professionalism of those working in IT but also the importance of IT in delivering business and social benefit."

Andrew Slater, Director of Cloud Services, Interoute Application Management commented "We recognise the intense pressure that established ISVs are under and are committed to helping them succeed in an increasingly competitive and challenging market. Our SaaS Acceleration Programme gives ISV partners the agility of a cloud platform architecture, with the added benefit of managed services and automation, that is designed to address their exact needs."

Stuart Sumner, Editor of Computing, comments: "I would like to congratulate the finalists. The UK IT Industry Awards are rigorously judged and to be announced as a finalist is a great achievement."
