We're lucky to work in an exciting, fast-moving space and reading these nominations was a fantastic reminder of what a massive impact organizations in the cloud industry can make to our world, in so many exciting, humbling, and unexpected ways."

Awards ceremony host Maxine Nwaneri added: "There are some absolutely exceptional nominees in these shortlists.
