Now in their 9th year, the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2017 attracted more than 500 entries. The awards are given for IT solutions that get to the heart of customer issues, delivering better business, a clearer understanding of data, and more efficient and profitable outcomes. The judges, with many decades of experience of IT industry involvement between them, have arrived at a list of finalists that they believe truly reflects both the strength of Europe's IT industry and many of the changes in direction occurring within it.

John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa, who heads the judges' panel says: "We have seen an even higher quality of entry this year. The fact that IT can make such a transformation in the business and organisation of so many enterprises, countries and organisations of all sizes is a tribute to the hard work that the industry puts in to effect such changes. In some ways IT transformation has been a well-kept secret and we aim to push out the core message in the coming year about just what the IT industry is capable of doing to a wider audience by highlighting some of the possibilities and potential contained in these awards."

The award winners will be announced on 30th March 2017 at a gala dinner and presentation ceremony.
