Are Your Software-as-a-Service, Cloud and Internet of Things Solutions Award Winners?

THINKstrategies is accepting nominations for its ongoing awards programs aimed at recognizing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Internet of Things (IoT) solution providers that are delivering measurable business benefits to their customers.

More than 100 SaaS companies have won Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Awards since the program was initiated in 2009. Click here to read a summary report about the wide array of SaaS companies that have been recognized for delivering quantifiable business benefits to their customers, ranging from lower operating costs and reduced response times to increased sales and higher customer satisfaction

The success of the BoSS Awards encouraged us to launch a second award program in 2010 to recognize IaaS and PaaS companies delivering similar business benefits to their customers via the Cloud, called the Cloud Computing Business Value (CCBV) Awards.

In December, THINKstrategies unveiled a new Connected Cloud Internet of Things (CCIoT) Award program that will showcase IoT success stories which have also produced quantifiable business benefits. The IoT marketplace is experiencing rapid growth powered by Cloud services that provide more cost-effective connectivity, data storage, analytics and information sharing capabilities.

The CCIoT Awards program is another opportunity to fulfill THINKstrategies’ mission of promoting the business benefits of today’s Cloud-based alternatives and help businesses of all sizes achieve their corporate objectives.

In order to qualify for an Award, companies must fulfill the following criteria:

  • Be incorporated and have a solution commercially available.
  • Be able to provide one or more customer success stories that quantify the business benefits of their solution and can be included in a public announcement.

Award nominations will be accepted on an ongoing basis using a standardized application. The nomination fee is $500 and is nonrefundable.

Award winners are announced on THINKstrategies’ website and promoted to our mailing list of over 15,000 newsletter subscribers and more than 6200 followers via Twitter. Award winners will also be able to promote the award designation on their website and in company collateral.
