BT once again takes Best Cloud Provider title at the Sell-Side Technology Awards, 2017

Sell-Side Technology Awards 2017

BT has scooped another award for our BT Radianz Cloud financial services platform.

For the fifth year running, daily news and analysis service Waters Technology has judged us Best Cloud Provider in its annual Sell-Side Technology Awards.

It’s the latest in a series of awards for BT Radianz Cloud, our connectivity and hosting platform for financial services firms.

In it’s write-up, the publication highlighted that since the launch of the Sell-Side Technology Awards five years ago, there has been only one winner of the best cloud provider category—BT with its BT Radianz Cloud.

For more than fifteen years, the BT Radianz Cloud has supported the world’s largest secure networked financial services cloud community. And over all of those the years we’ve consistently celebrated awards for our financial technology services portfolio, something we’re very proud of.

This latest award further reinforces that the industry appreciates that BT knows and understands its customers and has the capabilities to help them address their industry challenges.”
- Michael Woodman, Head of Radianz, BT

The vendor’s scale is impressive, to say the least. In 2016 alone it added 101 new customers and 3,313 service connections. It also added 13 new content providers—of which it has over 400—and over 130 new applications.

And on the acquisition front, in February, BT acquired IP Trade, a Belgium-based provider of unified communications and collaboration technologies for trading floor environments and command-and-control dispatch centers. The deal was made to bolster BT’s voice trading and turret solutions, which Radianz underpins.

With advancements like these, don’t be surprised to see BT back in the SST Awards winners’ circle this time next year.”
