[London, 20 April 2018] The winners in the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2018 (www.iteawards.com) - the leading pan-European awards for resellers, ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators and their vendor and distributor partners – have been revealed at a gala dinner in London on 19 April.

Now in their tenth year, the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2018 attracted several hundred entries from all over Europe, with 29 countries represented amongst the finalists.

The industry is continuing to change in response to customer’s need. I can highlight the strong SaaS and managed services’ entries, reflected in the winners list in a number of categories.”
