LONDON, UK - March 14, 2016 – ExtraHop, the global leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT intelligence and business operations, has been selected as a finalist for the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2016 or the Big Data, IoT or Analytics Solution of the Year Award within the ISV category.
Now in their eighth year, this year's European IT & Software Excellence Awards attracted over 400 entries from more than 31 countries. The awards are given for IT solutions that get to the heart of customer issues, provide a clearer understanding of data, and deliver more efficient and profitable business outcomes. The judges, with many decades of experience in the IT industry between them, have arrived at a list of finalists that they believe truly reflects both the strength of Europe's IT industry and some of the changes in the direction occurring within it.
Colin Pittham, Vice President of Sales for EMEA at ExtraHop said, "Businesses all over the world are waking up to the value of wire data to deliver key performance insights, align IT and business workflows, and improve business outcomes. We would like to thank our clients for supporting our nomination and the judging panel for recognising the innovation and value offered by our real-time stream analytics technology and for selecting us for a finalist position in what is a highly contested category."
The ExtraHop stream analytics platform goes far beyond traditional performance management tools, delivering the real-time insight that puts IT teams back in control of even the most critical and demanding of environments. With ExtraHop, teams across the IT organization – from network and applications, to DevOps and cloud, to security – have the visibility they need to fix, optimize, and transform their operations and align IT priorities and workflows with core business goals. The ExtraHop stream analytics platform is used by some of the UK's top organizations, including bet365, Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, and Eduserv, and Sportingbet.
John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa, who heads the judges' panel says: "This year has seen more entries than ever, and an even wider spread of project types – from mobility, security and management to software-as-a-service packages for key vertical markets, and from data-driven systems using the new power of analytics to others which effectively replace costly old systems with new and far more efficient apps, increasingly driven in the cloud. The result is the best-ever advertisement for the capabilities of European IT, and we could not help but be impressed by the skills on display and the effort that has gone into effective IT delivery."
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. 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 Awards dinner is co-located with the European Software & Solutions Summit 2016 (www.eusss.com) which incorporates the European ISV Convention 2016 (www.isvconvention.com) which will be staged during the day on 14 April 2016.
