The Irish Software Association (ISA) has named the six Irish software firms that will be competing to win the Outstanding Company of the Year accolade at its upcoming awards on 9 November.

The companies that have been shortlisted for the award are Openet, Camara, Espion Group, Compliance & Risks, iQuate and TERMINALFOUR. Between them, the ISA said the six companies employ around 1,125 people.

Phil Cox, Silicon Valley Bank’s head of EMEA and India and president of the UK branch, will be the keynote speaker at the ISA awards.

Karl Flannery, ISA chairman, also CEO of Storm Technology, spoke about how the awards recognise Irish software and digital technology companies.

“They help companies to validate for their customers, employees and investors the breadth of innovation, vision and execution in their enterprises as they scale internationally,” he said.

This year’s industry awards will be taking place in Dublin on 9 November and the ISA is expecting more than 400 Irish software companies to attend the event. A new award category has also been added to the line-up: Gaming Media Company of the Year.
