We’ve had an exciting first half of the year at Chef. Between ChefConf last month and announcing Chef Automate 2.0 in addition to our updates to InSpec and the new Chef Workstation, it’s an exciting time for us. We’re also extremely pleased by our ongoing industry recognition for our continued innovations in digital transformation from some of the industry’s premier award programs. Here’s a recap of the awards we’ve taken home in the first half of 2018:
Habitat was named the “Most Innovative DevOps Solution of the Year” for 2017 in the DevOps Dozen, a reflection of some of the great work being done in the DevOps community with our application packaging solution. This list is DevOps.com’s take on the best of the best in DevOps. In the same month, Chef Automate was named “Best Cloud Automation Solution” in the Cloud Awards. The Cloud Awards program celebrates the brightest and the best in Cloud Computing. Open to organizations across the globe, the Cloud Awards is the first and largest recognition platform of its kind.
AWS OpsWorks for Chef Automate (OWCA) received a Cloud Computing Excellence Award from TMC. The award, presented by Cloud Computing magazine, honors vendors that have most effectively leveraged cloud computing in their efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market. Later that month, Habitat won a 2018 BIG Innovation Award. This annual business awards program recognizes the organizations, products and people that are bringing new ideas to life.
Chef won a Visionary Spotlight Award for SaaS and Cloud Applications. The awards honor outstanding products, services and deployments across technology categories. The winners of the awards exemplify this goal, showcasing the industry’s overall innovation, capacity for future-thinking execution, creativity and feature set differentiation, offering channel partners a cornucopia of opportunities to boost their roles as trusted providers and business success.
Chef was recognized in the SD Times 100: ‘Best in Show’ in Software Development. The SD Times 100 looked for companies that have set a clear path that developers have followed.
