SunGard Availability Services (UK) Limited has been recognised as Service Provider of the Year an unprecedented eight times in the Business Continuity Awards’ thirteen-year history, and has been a finalist on all but one occasion: a track record unequalled in the industry. In 2008, SunGard was presented the 10th Anniversary Award for Outstanding Excellence in Business Continuity. SunGard and its customers have also achieved success in the Most Innovative Product, Most Effective Recovery, Industry Personality, Lifetime Achievement and Consultant of the Year categories, amongst others. Representing Intellect, the trade association, on the steering committee for BS 25999, SunGard helped to define the first standard of its kind, which is alerting the wider business community to the importance of business continuity management. SunGard then became the first business continuity expert to secure certification against the BS 25999 Standard, which it retained in 2010. It is now in the unique position of being able to assist its customers – both large and small alike – through the certification process drawing on its own experience. **About SunGard** SunGard is one of the world’s leading software and technology services companies.
