Taking the alfresco experience to new heights, the Burj Club Rooftop was the venue for the Cloud MENA Awards Ceremony 2017 on May 1st.
Cloud MENA region’s leaders in Cloud, IoT and 5G gathered together for a glamorous evening of dinner, relaxed discussions, and networking.
THE WINNERS OF CLOUD MENA AWARDS 2017 ARE:
The judges were looking to award the Cloud Platform whose offerings are able to significantly maximise the simplicity while minimising the cost of IT.
The Judges were looking to award the security solution that can showcase its ability to close this security gap, encrypt and protect data no matter where they are stored and bring peace of mind in Cloud Computing. Darktrace won this award as a very young company but with huge potential and success of delivering on the security needs with their solutions based on mathematics.
Infrastructure is immensely important for Cloud, and this Award recognises it. The Best Cloud Infrastructure Provider Award was given to a company that could demonstrate the most reliable, cost effective and high quality infrastructure services particularly in the MENA region.
This Award, as the only Award for an individual professional rather than a company or group of companies, recognised the hard work and passion of a superb CIO who has contributed significantly to their own company by deploying cloud, to the cloud industry in the region and to new developments in cloud technologies with regards to cooperation with partners/vendors. Hamad Rashid Suwaid from Qatar Gas Transport Company (Nakilat) is this year's winner!
Each category was independently judged by our neutral panel of industry analysts and specialists.
Keep an eye on this space to enter the Cloud MENA Awards in 2018.
