SDC AWARDS 2024 - 15th edition of Angel Business Communications' premier IT awards - predictably fantastic!

Rewarding innovation and excellence

The SDC Awards 2024 recognise the innovation, expertise and success of the IT industry across a range of key disciplines.

First up, we focus on the practical ways in which IT is making a difference in the 'real world', helping end users to address operational challenges and grasp digital opportunities. Our Projects categories highlight success in automation, storage, cybersecurity, cloud, networking, digital transformation, as well as the significant contribution that the channel makes when it comes to providing solutions to their customers.

Data protection and resilience is our second focus area, where we recognise innovations made within the storage and cybersecurity sectors. There are awards for backup and archive technology, business continuity and disaster recovery, cyber resilience, cloud storage and security, with both hardware and software solutions featuring.

Our third awards area covers digitalisation - some of the newer IT categories which are bringing artificial intelligence and machine learning, data management and analytics, IT operations and management and IT orchestration and automation into the workplace.

Next up, we salute the role that the channel plays in the IT industry. There are awards for the channel when it comes to storage, security, ESG, excellence in service, digitalisation, as well as recognition for vendor channel programmes.

Last, but by no means least, we feature the companies who are making a difference 24 x 7 x 365 when it comes to their chosen area(s) of expertise - storage, security, digitalisation, the channel and ESG/CSR.

Now in their 15th year, the SDC Awards continues to reflect the brilliance of the IT industry as it evolves to meet the demands of today's rapidly evolving digital landscape. Not only do we recognise organisations who have a long and strong track record for technology innovation and excellence, but we've also been quick to highlight start-ups who are bringing a fresh approach to many sectors of the industry.

The SDC Awards are completely free to enter, with the winners coming from our open, online voting process.

If you've been in business for the last 12 months, and are planning to be so for the next year, it's almost certain that you'll have customer success stories to share, technology innovations to highlight, not to mention overall company success to celebrate. In fact, if you haven't done anything award-worthy in recent times, or don't have any plans to do so in the next few months, then why are you in business?!!!

Don't delay, make sure you enter the SDC Awards today.
