Provo, UT, Aug. 19, 2019—Sovrin Foundation today announced it was named a finalist in the ninth annual Constellation SuperNova Awards. As digital transformation evolves across industries and geographies, organizations must make deeper investments to create real impact. This prestigious program recognizes teams and leaders for their innovative application of disruptive technology and transformative initiatives. Sovrin Foundation was chosen as a leading program in the Digital Safety, Governance, and Privacy category.
Backed by over 60 leading companies and organizations from around the globe, the Sovrin Foundation is a nonprofit organization established to administer the Governance Framework for the Sovrin Network, a decentralized global public network enabling self-sovereign identity on the internet. Using the Sovrin Network, people, organizations, and things can own and control their own permanent digital identity.
“As we enter a post-digital world, business transformation has emerged as both an art and a science,” said R “Ray” Wang, chairman and founder of Constellation Research. “The finalists selected for the 2019 SuperNova Awards represent individuals, teams, and organizations who have pushed the limits of their culture, business model, and technology to deliver on the art of the possible. What sets them apart is their ability to succeed at scale.”
“We are thrilled to be considered for the Constellation SuperNova Awards. The Sovrin Network changes everything about digital identity,” said Heather C. Dahl, CEO of the Sovrin Foundation. “As a decentralized, global, identity metasystem, Sovrin protects the autonomy people deserve in online interactions by giving people control over how they manage their digital identity. Self-sovereign identity is cryptographically secure, life-long, and independent of third parties—it is the critical element that has been missing since the inception of the internet.”
The 2019 SuperNova Award judges, comprised of technology thought leaders and journalists, selected finalists who demonstrated success in implementing leading-edge business models and emerging technologies for their organizations. Finalists achieved remarkable results, including competitive advantage, cost savings, and quantifiable improvements in agility.
Public voting for the SuperNova Awards will take place online from August 19 – September 13, 2019. The winners will be announced at the SuperNova Awards Gala on November 6 in Half Moon Bay, California, during Constellation’s Connected Enterprise.
