The MK Data Hub has won the prestigious “Business IT Innovation of the Year” at the UK IT Awards 2015
The event was attended by thousands of the UK’s technology leaders and professionals from around the UK. The UK IT awards, run by The Chartered Institute for IT (BCS) and Computing Magazine, are highly acclaimed due to the high contention for each award and the rigour of judging, which involves 2 stages where finalists are interviewed by a panel of industry and academic experts to determine the final winner. The entry focused on the Data Hub’s importance in enabling Smart City and IoT applications and analytics, using MK:Smart and Stride as the primary use cases. John Wittgreffe from BT and Sarah Gonsalves from Milton Keynes Council presented to the judges.
