New York, NY (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
Saugatuck Technology, the leading subscription research and business strategy consulting firm focused on the Cloud, today announced the 2013 winners of Saugatuck’s annual Beacon Awards for business and IT innovation. The winners are being presented with their awards during Saugatuck’s annual Cloud Business Summit, held today at the Westin Times Square in New York City.
This year, Saugatuck recognizes four pioneering enterprises whose innovative applications of Cloud and related IT improved their business – and their abilities to create and take advantage of new opportunities. Those firms are as follows:
“The types of innovation that we envisioned for the Awards are significant improvements in how a firm operates, the types of markets or lines of business that it is in, or how a firm has applied different ways of thinking, management, and use of technologies to create new offerings, markets, ways of doing business, or entirely new businesses,” according to Saugatuck SVP and head of Research Bruce Guptill.
“We are proud to recognize not only these terrific firms and their visionary leaders, but all of the firms that were nominated for our inaugural Beacon Awards. It’s a tremendous feeling to see the broad and deep ranges of business and IT innovation being developed and deployed to create and improve enterprises, processes, ways of doing business, and even new business opportunities – it’s what our Cloud Business Summit is all about,” added Saugatuck founder and CEO Bill McNee.
