BOSTON – October 22, 2015 – Acquia, the digital experience company, today announced that Pac-12 Networks and the City of Los Angeles are the recipients of the Cloud Innovator Awards, co-presented by Acquia and Amazon Web Services (AWS). The awards were presented during Acquia’s customer conference, Acquia Engage. They recognize organizations that are pushing the frontiers of what is possible when building and delivering digital experiences from the cloud.
The Cloud Innovator Award celebrates those organizations that stand apart in their commitment to thinking ahead in a digitally connected world, one that is ever-changing and always being disrupted. They’re tackling big challenges related to customer and citizen engagement and finding ways to improve the lives of others by creating experiences that are relevant, personal, and readily accessible. Through innovative applications of cloud and open source technologies, they’re moving beyond static forms of customer service and unlocking high-impact communication and service channels that will evolve with the advances of wearable tech, the Internet of Things and more.
Pac-12 Networks -- the TV and multimedia company that’s wholly owned by the 12 universities in the conference -- broadcasts to millions over cable, and its digital on-demand channels have transformed fan engagement across the web, mobile, on-demand video, and even in-stadium experiences.
