December 2011: An Award-Winning Month!
So far, December has been a very exciting and successful month for Virtual Instruments! We opened the month with the fantastic news that the company was ranked number 6 on Forbes’ list of America’s Most Promising Companies. The list featured 100 privately held up-and-comers with compelling business models, strong management teams, notable customers, strategic partners and precious investment capital.
On the evening of December 7th, at a private event in Los Angeles, we had the honor of winning the Red Herring 100 Global Award, which recognizes information technology product and service companies from over 40 nations who have demonstrated the most innovative technologies and have the potential to be market changing companies.
Our inclusion in these prestigious rankings with some of the most groundbreaking technologies and businesses is a real honor and not something we take for granted.
Several hours earlier on December 7th and “across the pond” in London, we had another piece of exciting news – Virtual Instruments, in conjunction with The Lloyd’s Banking Group, won the 2011 SVC Innovation Award for innovative and effective use of technology that supports storage, virtualization and cloud computing initiatives.
A few weeks earlier, VirtualWisdom was named a Technology Excellence Medalist for 2011 “Infrastructure Innovation of the Year” by BCS. A few weeks before that, Virtual Instruments’ customer, Unilever, won “Enterprise Project of the Year” from Datacentre Solutions Magazine, in large part due to their use of VirtualWisdom.
Over the last year, Virtual Instruments has experienced tremendous growth in all key business areas and we are proud that both VI and our customers are being recognized so publicly.
