Crises Control Managing, Shalen Sehgal, has been recognised in the coveted Computing Magazine Cloud Excellence Awards as Cloud Professional of the Year 2021. The title was awarded by the judges to an individual who has made visible and lasting changes to their business through the medium of cloud. The award was handed out at a glittering awards ceremony held at the Montcalm London Marble Arch Hotel last night.
On receiving the award last night, Shalen commented:
“I am delighted to receive this award, not just for myself but for all the members of our amazing team here at Crises Control. We have taken massive strides forward this year in setting up cloud hosting partnerships around the world, most prominently with Microsoft Azure. This award is recognition for the very hard work my team has undertaken over the last 12 months, during the massive disruption caused by the pandemic, to provide our platform to customers who need it around the globe.”
Shalen is the driving force behind Crises Control and is responsible for Crises Control’s cloud strategy, a vital component of our continued success. He has taken his vision for Crises Control a step further by brokering several key cloud deals for Crises Control this year, including a new partnership with Americana Computer Systems in the United Arab Emirates providing local IT support services; a new cloud computing data centre region in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with our partners Sahara Net; and most excitingly, a deal to host Crises Control on Microsoft Azure in their data centres around the world.
Shalen is a founding member of the Crises Control team and has been Managing Director of Crises Control since 2018, overseeing our progress as we have grown into a world leading cloud-based crisis communications and incident management platform. Shalen manages Crises Control’s operations globally, bringing our disruptive technology to organisations around the world.
At Crises Control our aim is to support organisations to keep the lines of communication open at all times. This includes everyday communications with team members both locally and around the world, and more crucially, in emergency situations when every second counts for getting the message out there.
