EXTON, PA, December 21, 2021 – Ricoh USA, Inc. has been declared a finalist in the international cloud computing awards program, The Cloud Awards.

Now in its tenth year, The Cloud Awards seek to identify, promote, and celebrate innovation in cloud computing. The awards program welcomes global entrants from organizations of any scale.

Ricoh has been shortlisted in two award categories, “Best Cloud Infrastructure” and “Best Hybrid Cloud Solution.”

“We are honored to be named a finalist in two categories of the Cloud Awards,” said Bob Lamendola, Senior Vice President, Technology and Head of Digital Services Center, Ricoh North America. “Over the past few years, the industry has changed from client-owned physical servers to virtualization and serverless environments. Hybrid cloud solutions take advantage of scalable computing power to meet workload demands and keep data secured, while running new applications without infrastructure investments. Our cloud infrastructure services continue to evolve, expand and lead the industry as we partner alongside customers on their digital transformation and cloud journey.”

Head of Operations for the Cloud Awards, James Williams, said: “Ricoh is a clear example of an organization using innovative technologies to achieve excellence – and, most importantly, provide value to its clients.

“After a decade of identifying and celebrating leading figures in the cloud sector, The Cloud Awards team is still unearthing new and remarkable uses of cloud technology. In the best examples, these innovations unlock transformative business practices and efficiencies. These celebrated organizations and individual innovators continue to disrupt existing markets and create new ones.

“The Cloud Awards team has a difficult time ahead marking out the organizations and business leaders at the very pinnacle of the stratum of excellence represented by today’s shortlist announcement. Those final winners will be announced in the New Year.”

Hundreds of organizations entered, with entries coming from across the globe, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. You can view the full shortlist here: https://www.cloud-awards.com/2021-shortlist/.

Final winners will be announced on Tuesday, February 8, 2022.

The Cloud Awards will return with a new Cloud Computing program in late 2022 to continue its recognition of excellence in cloud computing. The Software as a Service Awards program will soon accept entries for its Spring 2022 program at https://www.cloud-awards.com/software-as-a-service-awards/.
