The Cloud Awards. The SaaS Awards. Both awards programs aim to celebrate excellence and innovation in the scope of cloud-based “solutions as a service”. Organizations of any size, any vertical and any area of the world may apply for recognition as a Cloud or SaaS Award winner or nominee. The Cloud Awards program is one of the longest-standing and most influential platforms for organizations to gain recognition for their cloud-based offerings, celebrating success since 2011. The Software-as-a-Service Awards program concludes before the end of May, while the Cloud Awards program concludes before the end of October. Typically this will be on the penultimate (second-to-last) Friday of the month. Extensions, if given, will incur a late-entry fee.
