NEXTconf is taking over Anaheim May 7th - 9th and we’re looking forward to hosting our fourth annual .NEXT Customer Awards! We want to recognize all the work our customers have put in towards advancing their organization at our NEXT Americas 2019 event. The nomination period for the .NEXT 2019 customer awards is now open and will remain so until March 8, 2019.

Each year we look for a fearless leader, a group of transformers, disruptive teams, and a giving back initiative with heart to recognize on the main stage. We’re asking you - our valued customer, partner, or field team member, to nominate a Nutanix customer who’s acted with innovation, made an impact, and moved with momentum in their organization.

Our distinguished panel of judges will go through a robust review process to select the top three finalists in each category. Winners will be revealed and presented their award during our keynote by the Nutanix leadership team.

The top three finalists chosen per category will receive two nights hotel accommodations at .NEXT Anaheim and a complimentary .NEXT conference pass. You can read more about the nomination process, eligibility and submission criteria on the .NEXT Awards page.

Here are the details of the award categories:

Cloud Trailblazer Award

This award recognizes an innovative senior executive (CIO or VP-level) who has demonstrated excellence in technology leadership through innovation in his or her datacenter strategy that has directly resulted in meaningful business impact to his or her organization. End results include IT playing an important role in business growth, improvements in organization efficiency and productivity, and more.

Cloud Transformers Team Award

The award recognizes a team that has transformed their organization through IT with benefits in customer experience, growth, efficiency, service levels, operational savings, and more. This is the opportunity for business organizations and non-profit organizations alike including customers across all industry segments to highlight their strategy and success.

DevOps Rockstar Team Award

Breaking down silos between Infrastructure, Ops and Development teams requires collaboration, insight, agility and supporting technology. This award honors those teams who are working together to accelerate the development and roll out of applications. These innovators have found efficient and effective ways to remove friction between teams and collaborate in the spirit of driving digital transformation.

.Heart Giving Back Organization Award

As businesses embrace enterprise cloud in transforming their datacenters and positively impacting their organization, we also want to honor those companies that are simultaneously making a positive impact on their communities and the world. At Nutanix, we believe strongly in the power of diversity to contribute to innovation and satisfaction in the workplace. This award recognizes a socially responsible organization that has dedicated time, resources, and energy toward programs and diversity initiatives that fosters a passion for technology and education in everyone.

Submit a nomination for your company or customer for an award in one of the four categories here before March 8. Best of luck to all and we look forward to hosting you in Anaheim!
