categories

The 2018 MSH Awards consists of seven broad categories, allowing both Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Vendors to receive recognition for their work in the managed services sector. The seven categories are:

Managed Services Provider Categories

Best Public Sector MSP Project


Open to any public sector MSP project that resulted in significant benefits to the end-user organisation with regard to one or more managed services.

Best Enterprise MSP Project


Open to any enterprise MSP project that resulted in significant benefits to the end-user organisation with regard to one or more managed services.

Best SMB MSP Project


Open to any small or medium sized business MSP project that resulted in significant benefits to the end-user organisation with regard to one or more managed services.

Most Innovative MSP


Open to any MSP that can demonstrate innovation in terms of, but not restricted to, the organisation’s ability to develop and support one or more managed service, the way in which the MSP has developed its role in the supply chain, fulfilling the trusted advisor link role between vendors and end users, and the way in which the MSP has transformed its own organisation in terms of sales, support and technology expertise.

Vendor Supplier Categories

Most Innovative Managed Service Solution


Open to any clearly innovative managed service solution – this could include the technology upon which the managed service is based and the way in which the service is delivered to the customer and subsequently supported.

Best Vertical Market Managed Service Solution


Open to any managed service solution that targets a particular industry sector – therefore the entry will need to explain how the solution has been developed specifically to meet a need within the relevant industry.

Best Cloud Platform-based Managed Service Solution


Open to any Cloud platform-based managed service solution – the likelihood is that the solution will be based around one or more of the hyperscale Cloud platforms, although, as the headings suggests, a solution based on any Cloud platform is acceptable.
