Dermot Doherty, Founder and CTO of iSpaces IT LTD. has been shortlisted as Developer of the Year in the 2012-2013 Cloud Awards Program.

The Cloud Awards identify and celebrate excellence in the field of cloud computing, with categories including Best Cloud Infrastructure, Data Innovation of the Year, Developer of the Year, Most Promising Start-Up, Web Services Excellence and Best Software as a Service.

The cloud computing awards program accepts entries from organizations of any size - from enterprises to start-ups - in the US and internationally.

"I am thankful to be shortlisted in the Developer of the Year category for this year's Cloud Awards. In such an increasingly mature and competitive market, it is a real honor, " said Dermot Doherty, iSpaces' Founder and Chief Technology Officer.

Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: "The standard of entries this year was truly incredible - and we're still scratching the surface of what the cloud is capable of. "Efficiency, agility and an ability to leverage all of the positive attributes of cloud technologies are what set the organizations in this shortlist apart from any other.

"The competition in the Software as a Service category in particular was high - and although we have more of a long-list than a shortlist in this category, we're still sad not to be able to include every entry. "With such a high standard of international submissions, look out for some exciting developments for the 2013-14 Cloud Awards program. Due to high levels of demand, the program will include a new category for cloud consultancy services, and will accept entries from all international territories, including Australia."

Nearly 200 organizations entered, with entries coming from across the globe and including Europe, the US and Middle East. Final winners will be announced on Tuesday 15 January.
The Cloud Awards (http://www.cloud-awards.com/) will return in 2012-13 for a fresh program seeking excellence in the field of cloud computing.
