NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A host of leading organizations from the cloud ecosystem are partnering with the first-ever Digital Revolution Awards, a new awards ceremony founded by leading cloud talent solutions firm Tenth Revolution Group and committed to recognizing and celebrating outstanding performances across the industry.
The Digital Revolution Awards were founded in an effort to showcase the exceptional work being done by both individuals and businesses in the global cloud space. The awards will commend those making a difference to the way we work, the way we live, and the way we build our future through cloud technology.
Since launching in early October, the awards have garnered support from top organizations from across the digital technology world.
Nominations will be judged by a panel of independent experts from leading cloud organizations such as Salesforce, Barclays Investment Bank, KPMG UK, Belle Fleur, entero AG, The Equity Foundation, ISG, Project F, and Fortinet.
Among those sponsoring the Digital Revolution Awards are leading Salesforce DevOps solution developer Copado, prominent Microsoft Dynamics marketing platform ClickDimensions, and Salesforce Platinum Partner PolSource.
Also sponsoring the awards is Salesforce platform developer Elements.cloud, global consulting firm and Microsoft Gold Partner Arbela Technologies, and AWS Partner Network Rising Star Partner of the Year for the UK and Ireland, Rebura.
The awards are also supported by innovative organizations working to change the face of the cloud ecosystem, like talent creation firm Revolent, non-profit advocacy organization Brown Girl, Tech World, and multi-award winning social enterprise Code First Girls.
The Digital Revolution Awards isn't just about celebrating the work of today's cloud pioneers. As part of its mission to pave the way for the next generation of tech talent, and in lieu of traditional sponsorship fees, the Digital Revolution Awards are raising funds to support St Martin’s School so they can continue their outstanding work empowering students in Kenya to build brighter futures.
Nominations close on January 7th 2021. Finalists will be announced shortly after, with winners revealed in a virtual awards ceremony on February 25th, 2021, hosted by the entrepreneur, executive coach, and author Maxine Nwaneri.
"Without the incredible work of so many amazing individuals in the cloud ecosystem, the global economy could have ground to a complete halt in 2020," said awards ceremony host Maxine Nwaneri. "The mass transition to remote work we have seen over the past 12 months simply would not have been possible in the server-led infrastructure of not too long ago.
"I am therefore thrilled for the opportunity to be part of celebrating the ground-breaking accomplishments of essential workers in the cloud ecosystem; while also inspiring and enabling the success of others as we share their stories and best practices, and raise money for a fantastic cause."
"We are thrilled to have the support of so many cloud giants and ground-breaking organizations. Having experts from companies like Salesforce, Barclays, and Fortinet on our judging panel will be invaluable as we work to shine a light on cloud excellence," said Kashif Naqshbandi, CMO at talent-as-a-service firm and awards organizer Tenth Revolution Group.
"The backing the Digital Revolution Awards have been shown so far by people and organizations that are as passionate about the cloud industry as we are has been fantastic. We're so grateful for their collaboration."
