Connected Cloud Internet of Things (CCIoT) Awards

The purpose of the Connected Cloud Internet of Things (CCIoT) Award program is to recognize IoT companies that are leveraging Cloud services to deliver IoT solutions which produce measurable business benefits for their customers.

The CCIoT Awards is an ongoing program. There is no deadline for submissions, and applicants are reviewed and winners announced continuously.

In order to qualify for a CCIoT Award, companies must fulfill the following criteria,

Companies will only be considered that complete the entire CCIoT award application and provide all the information requested.

The nomination fee for the CCIoT Award is $500 and will not be refundable.

Award recipients will be notified via email. CCIoT Award winners will be designated on the Cloud Showplace and promoted via the Showplace e-newsletter which is distributed to over 15,000 subscribers and more than 6200 Twitter followers.

A CCIoT Award emblem is posted next to the Award winners listing on the Showplace with a link to a summary of the award winning solution and customer success story.
