The DCS Awards are widely recognised as the leading Data Centre award scheme and carry significant influence within the IT community.  Here’s a roundup of the winning entries:-

Curvature – How Curvature have become synonymous with Excellence in Services, having grown their portfolio through referrals and peer-to-peer endorsements.

DataCore – Explores the number of challenges that arise when an international business Evergreen Garden Care, departs from their infrastructure umbrella offered by their US parent company, Scotts Miracle Grow

Especially thrilling for OYC was the Award – ICT Storage Innovation of the Year 2019 which went to DataCore and their partner Waterstons – an OYC compiled end-to end case study testimonial resulting in the delightful Evergreen Case Study (see our Gallery) or visit  The judges and then the readers of Digitalisation World selected the entry as the ultimate winner in a packed category through the detailed description of the challenges and timescales that M&A poses and how every challenge offers opportunity for positive IT change.

Peter Davies, Sales Manager of the Digitalisation World portfolio at Angel Business Communications, organisers of DCS Awards said: " I’m delighted that we have this annual opportunity to recognise the innovation and success of a significant part of the IT and Infrastructure community. The number of entries, and the quality of the projects, products and people they represent, demonstrate that the DCS Awards continue to go from strength to strength and fulfil an important role in highlighting and recognising much of the great work that goes on in the industry.  This year's Finalists represent the very best in the industry and Curvature, Altaro and DataCore were voted as outstanding by our readership to win their categories."

Here's the opening extract from DataCore’s winning entry at Evergreen:

“How do you continue trading household brands such as MiracleGro, RoundUp and Weedol without interruption from 8 countries as far as Australia, when you no longer have the systems in place that you used to rely on? That was the situation at Evergreen just 14 months ago with the creation of a new international entity. Evergreen’s IT management team also wanted to embrace a strategy that would promote digital change and allow for flexible growth for expansion of the standalone business in the future. The new company appointed an Interim CIO with extensive experience of M&A, Steve Williams. “With the impending move away from the US corporate infrastructure, we had the chance to create a highly performant environment engineered from the ground up. In total we had 76 business systems to consider and due to criticality and process enhancement, we prioritised delivery of a new SAP ERP system first.” In between, IT had to keep the lights on with the existing systems to keep commerce turning. As with all steep challenges come distinct opportunities to modernise and embrace digital change and growth. Evergreen now had the real chance to implement slicker processes that would give market edge and deliver product innovation bringing new products to market faster than ever before and across international boundaries…”
