European IT & Software Excellence Awards winners are announced

The winners in the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2019 ( - the leading pan-European awards for resellers, ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators and their vendor and distributor partners – have been revealed at a gala dinner in London on 14 March.

“This was a record year – both in the quality and number of entries,” says John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa and head of the judges’ panel. “It was particularly interesting to see the numbers really tick up in the innovation categories. There is a lot of new thinking being done as to how technology can make a real difference, and it is happening right across Europe.”

Entries were received from companies of all types and sizes, and with a geographic spread from Russia, Belarus and Turkey to the Nordics and Ireland. Germany fielded a particularly strong year with a variety of solutions; the Balkans shows their usual strengths, especially in public sector projects.

Now in their eleventh year, the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2019 attracted more than 500 entries. The awards were given for IT solutions that get to the heart of customer issues, delivering better business, a clearer understanding of data, and more efficient and profitable outcomes.

The judges, with many decades of experience of IT industry involvement between them, have arrived at a list of winners that they believe truly reflects both the strength of Europe's IT industry and many of the changes in direction occurring within it.
