360incentives Shortlisted for 2013-14 Cloud Awards Program

International Cloud Computing Program Announces Shortlist

Whitby, ON – 17 December 2013 – 360incentives.com has been shortlisted in the 2013-2014 Cloud Awards Program in the category Most Promising Start-Up.

Identifying and celebrating excellence in the field of cloud computing, the cloud computing awards program encourages entries from across the entire globe – the US, Canada, Australasia and EMEA regions. Entrants can be from organizations of any size, including start-ups.

Categories this year included Best Cloud Infrastructure, Data Innovation of the Year, “Best in Mobile” Cloud Solution, Most Promising Start-Up and Best Software as a Service.

Jason Atkins Founder CEO 360incentivesJason Atkins, CEO & Founder, 360incentives said: “For 360 to be shortlisted in the “Most Promising Start-Up” category of the 2013-14 Cloud Awards program is a special honour, and we are delighted to be recognized among the other nominees.”

Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: “Every year, we think we must have met the ceiling on how high the standard of entries will get. Every year those expectations are smashed, as a new wave of Cloud pioneers and innovators shows us their successes – and more importantly, their drive for success.

“Cloud technologies are like no other, showing a remarkable ability to act as a catalyst for scalable, intuitive, hardworking solutions for business and modern life. We are lucky enough to be able to showcase some of the brightest and best.

“We’re seeing entries from Europe and the UK, from Canada, from the Middle East – and they’re matching pace with US offerings. It’s always sad for those who can’t make the final shortlist, even after splitting awards into geographic regions where necessary, but I can say that every single entry would have been worthy of a place in the final list.

“We have no idea what the 2014-15 Cloud Awards program will bring next year, but it looks like the only way is up.”

Over 200 organizations entered, with entries coming from across the globe, including Europe, the US, Canada, Australia and the Middle East.

Final winners will be announced on Tuesday 28 January 2014.

The Cloud Awards (http://www.cloud-awards.com/) will return in 2014-15 for a fresh awards program seeking excellence in cloud computing.
