W.Media held its 2nd edition of South Asia Cloud & Data Center Awards, which recognises the significant efforts and contributions made by organisations and thought leaders.
We recognize data center companies, cloud service providers and end users of technology that have demonstrated excellence through their success, vision, strategy and future opportunities in the industry. It was time to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of all teams, individuals and projects that have contributed so significantly to the development of this close-knit cloud and data centre community across South Asia.
The standard of entries for this year’s awards continues the very high standard set last year. We received 120 entries across 15 categories and this number represented an increase over 2021. The Awards consisted of various categories which included Sustainable Design & Build, Cloud Consolidation & Migration, Energy Efficient Innovation, Hyperscale Innovation (Automation), Carbon Reduction, Digital Transformation, MultiCloud Management, Cybersecurity Implementation, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Data center Operations Team, Datacenter Service & Maintenance Team, Business Leader, Business Leader, and Technology Leader.
The ceremony started with ‘Outstanding Datacenter Projects’ category, covering 19 Award winners and ending befittingly with the ‘Top Business Leader’ award. Further, the awards went through a stringent selection process and was evaluted by close to 40 international industry professionals. The event ended with a networking dinner and a chance for all attendees to share insights, best practices and concerns in the industry.
Some of the awards were given away by industry people to their competitors- a first of its kind initiative. The move signaled that the industry is close knit and is open to sharing best practices, as it evolves.
As we enter into 2023, businesses need to put innovation and efficiency ahead of everything else, in this ‘new normal’ world. W.Media congratulates all winners for the 2022 South Asia Awards and will return in 2023 for a more elaborate celebration.
