London, United Kingdom: Sungard Availability Services ® (Sungard AS), a leading provider of information availability through managed IT, cloud and recovery services, today announces two wins at this year’s Business Continuity (BC) Awards in the categories of ‘Contribution to Continuity and Resilience’ and ‘Resilience in Infrastructure and IT Service Delivery’. The awards – now in their 19th year – recognise innovation and strategic prowess in the BC, security, resilience and risk industry.
Sungard AS secured its first award, ‘Best Contribution to Resilience and Continuity’, for its two-pronged commitment to promoting awareness and understanding amongst industry users as well as ensuring the company’s people, processes and technologies are aligned to enable customers to wrest back certainty in an uncertain world. Sungard AS helps professionals, business leaders and IT decision markers grapple with the demands of bi-modal Hybrid IT environments, as well as helping to ensure organisational resilience, competitiveness and availability.
We are also thrilled to announce that Sungard AS received the ‘Resilience in Infrastructure & IT Service Delivery‘ award for its key investment strategy focused on resolving conflicts between traditional and agile IT, while developing new cloud-based services to meet customer needs for a resilient IT infrastructure. The ability to work with complex hybrid IT environments combined with its customer-focussed approach were the key differentiators that made Sungard AS stand out from the competition in this category.
“The Business Continuity awards have long been a much anticipated and respected industry event for BC professionals, and we’re proud to be recognised in the categories of ‘Contribution to Resilience and Continuity’ and ‘Resilience in Infrastructure and IT Service Delivery’. The awards demonstrate our continued commitment to deliver the highest standards of service for our customers. As recent events in the UK have shown, it is vital that organisations approach their business continuity not just as a recovery-led process, but as one of All-Time™ availability, with resilience and security baked-in. We constantly strive to deliver the services and consultancy to facilitate this mindset and work closely with our customers to help them achieve it.”
The Business Continuity Awards, now in its 19th year, recognises business continuity, security, resilience and risk professionals for their innovative strategies and industry savvy. The event took place on 8th June in London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square. A full list of winners can be found here:
