In what has been, and continues to be, extraordinary times for the business world, it seems doubly important to recognise the projects, innovations and individuals which have made such a huge difference during 2020. Almost overnight, employees switched from office working to working from home, and the new, or next, normal, means that, into the future, what might be called a ‘hybrid work’ model looks set to evolve, with flexible working very much the order of the day. What was already becoming a trend as part of many organisations’ digital transformation programmes, has been accelerated.
Despite the challenges presented by this year, the SDC Awards must go on and this time it must be virtual!
Over the past 10 years the Storage, Digitalisation and Cloud Awards has firmly established itself as the premier IT event for recognising and rewarding success in the products and services that are the foundation for digital transformation!
And the SDC Awards 2020 will celebrate the achievements of end users and the IT community as they have innovated like never before to ensure business continuity in these challenging times. There are many projects which need to be recognised, there are many technology innovations which have made a difference, and there are the organisations and individuals who have made it all happen.
We’ll be promoting all the short-listed entries via Digitalisation World’s multi-media platform over the coming months, ahead of the awards ceremony. We really do want to celebrate and recognise the many amazing achievements which have come about in response to the coronavirus.
This year, the SDC Awards must be virtual, so we are embracing some new ways of getting the awards highlighted, shared, voted for and generally promoting our industries crusade for excellence!
SO, WHAT IS DIFFERENT?
We will still have a huge marketing campaign to encourage voting, via our own publishing channels as well as partner/supporter channels. We will still encourage our nominating companies to encourage voting through their databases and networks. The standout winners and runners up will still be celebrated!
With no ceremony we cannot bring together the industry in a room for an evening of fun and networking, but while it’s impossible for us to provide the same party atmosphere, we can create a cacophony of noise celebrating the very best of what the industry has to offer!
