The Best of Tech·Ed 2011 awards recognize companies who offer innovative products for the industry. The judges reviewed 334 products and services submitted for the award and chose 47 finalists to be interviewed at the Microsoft Tech·Ed North America 2011 conference in Atlanta, Georgia on May 16, 2011. Winners will be announced at an invite only evening reception at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, May 18.
“We received a record number of nominations this year—more than 300—and determining an array of finalists from that large, diverse field was difficult,” said Jason Bovberg, senior editor at Windows IT Pro®. “The mix of products and services from year to year is ever-changing and exciting, and we feel that our 49 finalists represent highly distinguished products and services in their categories. For all categories, as always, our judging process involves three criteria: strategic importance to the market, competitive advantage, and value to customers.”
