The London-based consultancy is a finalist in the Data Centre, IT Managed Services & IT Security Solution of the Year categories.
The announcement marks Green Fields’ first industry awards nominations of 2014, and follows a remarkable few years which has seen the innovative company named as finalists in Technology Transformation, Managed Services, Convergence Solution & Data Centre categories across a range of prestigious competitions as well as winning European Service Provider of the Year (2011) & European Cloud Managed Service of the Year (2012) at previous IT Europa Awards.
Matt Tomon, founder & Chief Executive of Green Fields, said “We are delighted to have been nominated for these awards - it’s a great accolade for the whole team. We have always sought to combine the stability, reliability & expertise of an enterprise IT services provider with the flexibility, passion & personalised service of a boutique consultancy and being named as finalists amongst such tough competition means we must be getting it right. "
The European IT & Software Excellence Awards are the only pan-European awards which recognise the crucial role that ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators play in the delivery of real world solutions, and attracted entries from 25 countries. Entries were submitted by the ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators themselves describing the solution provided. Each entry had to be supported by an endorsement by the client.
“The quality of entries was extremely high and demonstrated the depth of talent in European IT and Telecoms channels,” stated Alan Norman, Managing Director of IT Europa. “We had a record number of entries this year the finalists have come from right across Europe, with Central and Eastern European countries well represented.”
“There was a definite shift in the nature of the entries this year, with real-world applications delivering clear returns, even in some sophisticated and demanding environments. I'd like to thank all the entrants for their hard work and enthusiasm in preparing them,” says John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa. “The way software is now such a fundamental part of the total IT offering, and how much better its use, integration and future possibilities are presented in the solutions this year, impressed the judges.
Tomon agrees: "The economic climate means our clients expect us to deliver technical solutions that are not just robust & reliable, but also that deliver tangible benefits in terms of clients’ strategic, operational & commercial objectives. We pride ourselves on leveraging technology innovations that give our clients’ the competitive edge they need to keep them ahead of their rivals. The three projects we have been nominated for are perfect examples of this philosophy.”
