Recognising innovation in cloud adoption

”This award will be presented to the organization that demonstrates an innovative and pioneering approach to cloud adoption, especially when migrating from the traditional data center environment, and one that best matches business objectives to corporate requirements in terms of risk, availability and security,” said George Rockett, CEO of DCD. 

A spokesperson for last year’s winner, SDL, added: “I’m honoured and proud for this recognition by my industry peers. Our Cloud Journey for SDL Machine Translation was one of the biggest 2014/2015 projects and the team did an amazing job.”
