We are pleased to announce the finalists for the seventh annual SuperNova Awards. The Constellation SuperNova Awards recognize leaders and teams for their innovative application of disruptive technology in business.

Now it's your turn to help the judges decide who will win a SuperNova Award. Cast your votes for the 2017 SuperNova Award winners from September 18 - October 2. 

The winners will be announced at Constellation's Connected Enterprise at the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay October 24 - 27. Constellation analysts will reveal the winners during the SuperNova Awards Gala, which will be held on the second night of Connected Enterprise. 

“The competition for SuperNova Awards is really tough this year,” said R “Ray” Wang, chairman and founder at Constellation Research. “We saw some really innovative applications of emerging technologies across a wide variety of industries. Among this year's finalists are a bank employing AI to enhance customer experience, an energy company monitoring output of gas wells with IoT, a sewing machine manufacturer that doubled profits after a successful digital transformation, and a Scotch whisky distiller whose implementation of cloud ERP enabled it to produce innovative limited edition whiskies. I'm really excited to share these case studies with the world.”
