PHOENIX – Sept 8, 2014 – Channel Partners, a resource for indirect sales channels offering IT and telecom solutions, is pleased to announce that Matrix-IBS has been selected as a winner of the 2014 Cloudys Cloud Channel Innovation Awards.
Twenty-five winners were honored during an awards ceremony on Sept. 8 at Cloud Partners, a Channel Partners event, in New Orleans. These winners will be featured in a Channel Partners’ November/December print issue as well as a digital issue that can be downloaded from The Cloudys Immersion Center at www.channelpartnersonline.com/cloudys. The 2014 program was underwritten by Verizon.
“The response to the inaugural Channel Partners Cloudys awards has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Khali Henderson, Editor-in-Chief of Channel Partners. “This program rewards innovation across the cloud ecosystem and success in a world where traditional distinctions among developer, vendor, provider and partner blur.”
Matrix-IBS Metrolina Greenhouses has been selected as a 2014 winner of The Cloudys: Cloud Channel Innovation Awards for Most Innovative Cloud Customer Deployment.

Channel Partners editors evaluated and scored all applications to determine the winners in five categories, including:
- Most Innovative Cloud Service

- Most Innovative Cloud Partner Business Model
