The DCD EMEA Awards are part of a unique global series recognizing the most outstanding projects, teams and professionals in the field. Previous winners have included some of the world’s leading brands and this year the winners were from across the region, including UAE, UK, Ireland, Turkey, the Netherlands, Greece, Spain, West Africa, Finland and Djibouti.
The winning entries were the result of rigorous selection by an independent judging panel of industry experts, seeking to identify success, leadership, innovation and best practice in data center projects, people and teams. This year saw four new categories to recognise achievement in particular markets: The Enterprise Data Center Award, Public Services Digital Delivery Award, Service Provider Data Center Award and Internet Data Center Award.
We’d like to extend our congratulations to all winners at the event including Prof Ian Bitterlin, Consulting Engineer & Visiting Professor, Leeds University, for winning the “Outstanding Contribution to the Data Centre Industry” as presented by Shane Hope of Rittal Ltd.
