On the 1st July, IT vendors and end users alike gathered to celebrate the achievements of providers who are leading the field of enterprise IT with innovative products, services and solutions that underpin and drive success in both business and public sector organisations. Computing’s annual accolades looks to provide insight to its readers as to which vendors they should choose when looking to make high level purchasing decisions within the IT market.
Computing’s second Vendor Excellence Awards took place at London’s prestigious Royal Garden Hotel in London Kensington. Prior to the awards being announced, there was an opportunity to meet fellow industry peers, business associates and nominees at the pre-awards drinks reception. As the champagne flowed everyone was then ushered into the main event space for lunch and to watch entertainment provided by Hackney comic Funmbi Omotayo who then hilariously announced the winners and gave out the awards.
