At the 2013 Georgia Technology Summit yesterday, Internap was honored as one of the Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. The awards, presented by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), recognize “an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia’s Technology community.

The hundreds of technology leaders in attendance at the event also represent something else – they reflect larger trends taking place in the world of business today. A quick glance at the full list of winners shows the increasing demand for cloud, mobile and social technologies. Healthcare, finance, risk management, green energy and supply chain management are also well-represented on this list.
