(London, 26th February 2010) IT Europa, the leading European IT publisher and market intelligence organisation, today announced the winners of the European IT Excellence Awards 2010 – the first pan-European awards event for IT and Telecoms channels. The finalists were honoured last night at a celebration dinner at The Tower Hotel, London.

The European IT Excellence Awards are the first pan-European awards which recognise the crucial role that Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and Solution Providers play in the delivery of real world solutions, and attracted entries from 26 countries. Entries were submitted by ISVs and resellers describing the solution provided and each had to be supported by an endorsement by the client. 51 companies from 16 countries made the finals. The winners were selected by an independent panel of consultants and editors.

The award for Channel Company of the Year, the award to the entry across all 17 categories that most impressed the judges, was won by Interconsult Bulgaria for a document generation process automation solution for Konisberg Maritime (KM).

Another notable award on the night, for the European Channel Personality of the year, went to Patrice Arzillier, CEO of Distrilogie. This award was based on the results of a poll of 20,000 directors of Europe’s leading 8,000 channel organisations and the readership of the IT Europa’s pan-European channel news services.

Other winners included: Jaspersoft, Appear Networks, ACE enterprise Slovakia, s.r.o., RetmarkerAMD (a division of Critical Software), Flexera Software, SIVECO Romania, Intetics Co., SDL, Wavex Technology Ltd., Isotrak Ltd., Derdack GmbH, Origina, Vodafone, Interconsult Bulgaria, Info-Quest S.A., Level3 Communications and Citrix Systems

In congratulating the winners, Alan Norman, Managing Director of IT Europa said: “the overall quality of entries was extremely high and demonstrated the depth of talent in the channel community across Europe. I congratulate all the winners and wish them and all the finalists every success in the year ahead”

The awards categories were divided into two main groups: ISVs and Solution Providers. The ISV categories were for software-based solutions for which the ISV had written the bulk of the solution itself. The Solution Provider categories were for complete solutions that include hardware, software, communications and services. As well as the channel categories there were three supplier categories for which channel companies nominated their distributors, service providers or vendors for the support provided through their channel programs.
