[LONDON, UK, 15 March 2019] CANCOM beat 12 other contenders to win Enterprise Cloud Solution of the Year at this year’s European IT and Software Excellence Awards held in Central London last night.

The award recognises the design and build of a cloud-first, modern workplace for a joint venture between music licensing bodies PRS for Music and PPL. The design met a complex set of needs, supporting multiple locations, home-based and field-based staff.


“Compared to competitors, our design was the only one offering a full end-to-end, cloud solution,” commented Managing Director, Martin Hess.

Combined with OCSL’s passion and talent for Cloud, we’re in a great place! I’m very proud of our teams and our clients, who made all this possible. Well done to all!"
