Content Guru has been selected as a finalist in two categories in the influential BCS (The Chartered Institute for IT) & Computing UK IT Industry Awards 2016.
The annual UK IT Awards set the benchmark for outstanding performance in the UK computing industry. Each category focuses on the outstanding achievements of individuals, projects and organisations that have stood out in the advancement of IT during the preceding 12 months. Winners will be announced at a glamorous black-tie dinner at London’s Battersea Park Events Arena on 16th November 2016, where finalists will attend a drinks reception and three-course meal with top-flight entertainment.
Content Guru made the shortlist in the ‘Young IT Professional of the Year’ category thanks to the recognition of Support Engineer Liam Sutcliffe. Sutcliffe’s exceptional work and dedication to helping customers and colleagues alike upholds and furthers Content Guru’s strong industry reputation for individual and organisational quality.
Content Guru was also shortlisted in the ‘Best Use of Cloud Services’ category for the deployment of its UK storm® cloud platform in NHS England’s London Region Patient Relationship Management (PRM) initiative. This solution has seen storm roll out a raft of new communications integration capabilities for the key NHS 111 service. PRM leverages Agile programme management to deliver adaptive intelligent automation and secure integration between diverse health and care information systems, substantially improving patient experience and outcomes.
Martin Taylor, CMO at Content Guru, commented:
“It was a fantastic experience to be named Cloud Provider of the Year at last year’s UK IT Industry Awards, and we are honoured to be recognised this year for deploying storm’s cutting-edge cloud technology on behalf of such a vital service as 111; the NHS is one of the UK’s proudest institutions and it is tremendous to be playing our part in transforming a service that benefits thousands of people every day. A lot of hard work goes on behind the scenes, so it’s extremely rewarding to be recognised at not just an organisational but also an individual level in this year’s UK IT Awards. Liam Sutcliffe is an exceptional member of a top-class team and I’m sure he will be looking forward to the ceremony, where we hope to build on the success of winning our first Queen’s Award for Industry in April.”
