How do you know we’re getting close to the beginning of Interop? The judges have announced the finalists for Best of Interop, that’s how. The folks over at InformationWeek Analytics who are running this year’s competition released the list of finalists today — take a look and leave a comment to let us know who you think will win in Las Vegas.
In addition to the eight category winners, there will be three special awards: Grand Prize Winner, Best StartUp, and the Green Award. The Green Award recognizes eco-friendly products. For the Best StartUp category, the vendor must have existed as an independent company for two years or less. The judges will determine the overall Grand Prize Winner from the pool of category winners. For more information on Best of Interop categories and awards, visit the Best of Interop web site.
Now — which companies do you think will take home the prizes? Let us know — with enough comments, I’ll put together a few graphs before the awards, and we’ll see how The Wisdom of the Crowd compares to the judges’ results. Plan to check back on Tuesday, May 19, when winners will be announced and the ceremony will be blogged right here.
