ATLANTA, Jan. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Liaison Technologies, a recognized leader in cloud-based integration and data management solutions, today announced that it has been shortlisted as a finalist in the 2016-2017 Cloud Awards in the "Best Platform as a Service or Cloud Middleware" category. Now entering its seventh year, this cloud computing awards program celebrates excellence and innovation in the rapid-growth cloud computing market.
Making the shortlist for the Cloud Awards is the latest in a string of honors for Liaison Technologies, which has garnered considerable industry recognition following the release of its groundbreaking Liaison ALLOY™ Platform. The company was the recipient of numerous awards and accolades in 2016 from prominent award programs such as the Golden Bridge Business and Innovation Awards, the Business Intelligence Group's Stratus Awards for Cloud Computing, and the American Business AwardsSM.
Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: "In our sixth year of recognizing and celebrating excellence and innovation in the cloud, the standard of entries has been staggering. This high level of excellence is reflected in the size of organizations we are seeing enter — from start-ups to blue chips, and everything in between.
"Every organization on the shortlist is a worthy candidate, and the judges have had the most difficult time this year finding the best of the best, due to the standard and volume of entries. But every year, the bar gets raised to new levels. We will also be publishing a research report on the state of the cloud computing industry, based on the responses of the hundreds of participants who entered."
The rising popularity of Liaison ALLOY is due to its unique approach to integration, which offers a more complete vision than those of current middleware and iPaaS providers. By offering integration, data management, and continuous compliance as fully managed services on a single unified platform, ALLOY frees its users from the non-strategic, yet resource-intensive tasks of data movement, harmonization, storage, and protection. This allows customers to more agilely address ever-growing volumes and varieties of data, meet increasingly complex data compliance mandates, and satisfy business leaders' urgent demands for insights—solving the true integration problems facing organizations today.
"We are proud to be on the Cloud Awards shortlist," said Rob Consoli, Chief Revenue Officer at Liaison. "It's an honor to not only have our innovations acknowledged, but also those of our inspiring customers who are using ALLOY in creative new ways to disrupt their industries and change the world."
