Modern Infrastructure 2016 Impact Award Categories

Here are the categories for the 2016 Modern Infrastructure Impact Awards.

The Modern Infrastructure Impact awards recognize the top products, technologies and services in the essential areas of technology that Modern Infrastructure covers. The award-winning tools will be those helping to run enterprise businesses with efficiency and insight -- whether they're used inside the data center or outside.

Nominations are open through Oct. 2, 2015. Winners will be announced in the January issue of Modern Infrastructure.

Award Judging

A team of experts and editors will evaluate submissions and choose the top 10 finalists in each category. This list of nominees will be those products that reflect the most modern technology trends and that provide tangible operational benefits for IT organizations. Readers will then vote and provide feedback on the nominees. One winner and any honorable-mentions will be announced for each category in January.

The deadline for submission is Friday, Oct. 2, 2015. If you submit multiple products, complete one form for each product. The same product may not be entered in multiple categories. Enter through our Modern Infrastructure Impact Awards nomination form.
