Deloitte ditches Scottish IT awards

Deloitte ditches Scottish IT awards

Awards canned after seven year run

The Fast 50 Scotland awards, which recognised the achievements of technology
companies in the region, have been scrapped by Deloitte in favour of a
nationwide awards scheme.

The firm had run the awards scheme – which originated in San Jose,
California, in 1995 – for the last seven years.

The Scotsman reported that Deloitte had scrapped the awards because
Scottish technology companies were less interested now in comparing themselves
with other Scottish companies and more interested in finding out how they
measure up against big IT players in Cambridge, London and Manchester.

Just eight of last year’s Scottish Fast 50 made it on to UK list.
