Xalient wins Stevie Award for Most Innovative Company of the Year 2021 in International Business Awards®

Xalient was named the winner of a Silver Stevie® Award in the Most Innovative Company of the Year 2021 category in The 18th Annual International Business Awards® today.

Xalient was recognised for its vision, commitment to excellence and recent innovations, including MARTINA, a networking monitoring tool that utilised AI & ML to simplify monitoring complex global networks.

Mark Cooke, COO at Xalient, said “We’re really proud to have won this award for innovation. Committing to delivering excellence is one of our core values and part of that is challenging ourselves to constantly innovate and think outside the box. We’ve made significant investments into innovations in recent years, which are now delivering great value to our customers around the world. This award is testament to the hard work the team has put in to date and will continue to do going forward.”

In their feedback on Xalient’s entry, the judges acknowledged:

“Xalient is a winning combination of flawless delivery and continuous innovation.”

“Congratulations on an outstanding example of innovation! Creating the spirit of creativity among all employees is an amazing value to share. Combining security and IT networking, different types of tech like the light beam and having the revenue and testimonials to prove it is an incredible achievement and shows the belief throughout the organisation.”

“I applaud Xalient for their partnership with [Bradford] University…as AI will not be solved by one customer, one solution, one market or one approach. Bringing together others provides the foundation and platform for a much deeper understanding of the problems, issues, needs and opportunities for AI.”

Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 260 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from June through early August.

“What we’ve seen in this year’s IBA nominations is that organizations around the world, in every sector, have continued to innovate and succeed, despite the setbacks, obstacles and tragedies of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher.  “All of this year’s Stevie Award winners are to be applauded for their persistence and their resilience.  We look forward to celebrating their achievements with them during our 8 December virtual awards ceremony.”
