CAMBRIDGE, MA – January 4, 2014 – InsightSquared, provider of next generation business intelligence software as a service, has been shortlisted in the 2014-2015 Cloud Awards Program in the category Best Business Intelligence or Analytics Solution. With awards for excellence and innovation in cloud computing, the cloud computing awards program accepts entries from across the entire globe, including the US, Canada, Australasia and EMEA. Now in its fourth year, entries are accepted from organizations of any size, and include start-ups and government bodies.

In 2014-15, categories include Data Innovation of the Year, “Best in Mobile” Cloud Solution, Most Promising Start-Up and Best Software as a Service.

“As we move into the near year, the cloud will continue to play a central role in data analytics and business operations,” said Fred Shilmover, CEO of InsightSquared. “We feel privileged to be recognized among the other nominees in the 2014-2015 Cloud Awards program. Our inclusion is a true testament to the importance of cloud in all facets of business.”

“The standard of entries to this year’s program has been truly staggering – so much so that even after culling hundreds of organizations from our consideration, our shortlist is still longer than ever before,” said Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson. “We’ve been very impressed with how the Cloud ecosystem has evolved by the end of 2014 and these best-of-breed organizations are knocking it out of the park in terms of performance. These technologies aren’t going away: leverage them now or ignore them at your peril.

Johnson continued: “When the dust has settled on what promises to be the most diverse and dynamic field of candidates yet, nobody knows what the 2015-16 Cloud Awards program will bring next year aside from continued excellence.”

Over 300 organizations entered, with entries coming from across the globe, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. Final winners will be announced on  Tuesday, January 27th 2015. This will not be the end of the process, with a public vote announced on this date to decide who will win the Cloud Computing Organization of the Year Award.

The Cloud Awards (http://www.cloud-awards.com/) will return in 2015-16 for a fresh awards program seeking excellence in cloud computing.
