The winners were announced at the ceremony that was held on 29 November. After a series of presentations conducted by the seven finalist companies, the jury decided to award the first place to Stratio and the second place to HealthySystems. On the one hand, these two companies stood out for their intrinsic potential and, on the other hand, for the results of the pilots that were developed for the respective subsidiaries companies of the Group.
