Managed Services & Hosting (MSH) Awards 2019 finalists announced

The finalists have been announced in the annual managed services awards by IT Europa and Angel Business Communications. The winners will be announced at an awards dinner following the Managed Services & Hosting Summit.

With categories covering both projects and technologies, the awards have been designed to recognise excellence in this increasingly important and fast-developing sector. “There was a particular interest in the innovation solutions categories, as we’d expect,” says John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa and chair of the judges. In fact, the judges’ panel decided to split the Most Innovative Managed Service Solution in the Security section into two because of the number and quality of the entries. So, there are now awards for both the application solution and the project.

As well as entries from those engaged in the projects and vendors, there are entries based on voting from a poll of senior executives across Europe’s 1500 MSPs who were asked to select the technologies and solutions which mean the most to their businesses.
