IBA Group Wins Best Database Solution of European Software Awards
On March 1, IT Europa announced the winners of the European Software Excellence Awards 2012, the pan–European awards event for ISV (Independent Software Vendor) community, in Berlin, Germany. IBA Group was selected the winner in the category Database Solution.
Entries from 18 countries were submitted by ISVs. A total of 36 companies from 14 countries made the finals. The winners were selected by an independent panel of consultants and editors.
The ISV categories were chosen to highlight the different areas where ISVs develop and deliver software–based solutions for their clients. These awards were for customer solutions not products and the ISV had to describe what their customer was trying to achieve, what they proposed, how they implemented it and what the results were for the customer. Each entry was backed up by a customer testimonial.
The contest was conducted for the fourth year. However, this year IT Europa separated the European Software Excellence Awards from the European IT Excellence Awards, establishing awards specifically for software developers.
IBA Group applied in two categories, namely Information Management (Database Solution) and Vertical Market (Enterprise Solution), and its Database Solution was selected the winner.
IBA Group entered the contest for the fourth time and became the winner for the second consecutive year. In 2011, it was selected the winner in the category Relationship Management of the joint European IT Excellence Awards.
The winners in other categories included Oracle for Application Development Platform, Fujitsu for Application Delivery Platform, and other reputable companies.
In congratulating the winners, Alan Norman, Managing Director of IT Europa said: “The overall quality of entries was extremely high and demonstrated the depth of talent in the ISV community across Europe. I congratulate all the winners and wish them and all the finalists every success in the year ahead.”
