We recently learned that Sungard Availability Services has again been shortlisted in every category entered in the CIR Business Continuity Awards 2016.

We have an unequalled track record in these awards, having won a record number of gongs over the years, but never forget that competition is always fierce.

We were thrilled that Royal Bank of Canada’s Roger Payne has been deservedly shortlisted in the Student of the Year category. Meanwhile, we are finalists in the Most Effective Recovery of the Year (for our handling of the Chennai floods), Best Contribution to Continuity & Resilience, Most Innovative Solution (for our RaaS offering, also recognised in Gartner’s inaugural Disaster Recovery as a Service Magic Quadrant in the Leader position ) and Resilience in Infrastructure & IT Service Delivery categories.

Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on 9 June, which will take place at the London Marriott hotel and will be hosted by comedian Ed Byrne.

Having also submitted entries for the BCI Europe and India Awards, as well as the Datacloud Awards, we hope we’ll have some more good news to report in the summer issue!
