These solutions are built on the premise that no two businesses are alike, and neither should their cloud solutions be the same.”

The mission of the annual Mobile Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of mobile and wireless technology categories, including Cloud Computing, Mobile Management, Wireless and Broadband, Mobile Analytics, IoT, and Smart City and many more. All nominations were evaluated by an independent panel of experts within the wireless industry.

“What do small businesses and the world’s largest enterprises all have in common? The need for reliable and efficient IT infrastructures. Today’s businesses are operating in an ever-changing environment where flexibility is paramount, and they can’t afford downtime, security threats, or compliance headaches,” said James Johnson, managing director, Mobile Breakthrough. “RapidScale has the capabilities to address these challenges and further, to scale as companies grow. Their ‘breakthrough’ portfolio of end-to-end solutions to tackle both the most common and more unique technology issues companies face daily is what makes them our ‘Enterprise Cloud Computing Platform of the Year’ award winner.”
