HDI announced the winners of the 2015 HDI Service Management Awards at the recent FUSION 15 Conference & Expo which took place November 1–4 in New Orleans. Experience the award ceremony from FUSION 15.
The HDI Service Management Awards are the highest honor in the IT service management profession, recognizing excellence and honoring support organizations that have generated positive, measurable results. The two awards, the HDI Service Improvement Award and the HDI Knowledge-Centered Support Award, address specific areas of service management.

With a total of three finalists for the HDI Service Improvement Award (Emory Healthcare, Farm Credit Mid-America, and Spectrum Health) and three finalists for the Knowledge-Centered Support Award (Apollo Education Group, TECO Energy Service Desk, and Paychex), each entry was thoroughly evaluated by a panel of judges that included a mix of industry experts and award-winning practitioners in the service management industry.
