Azul Systems (Azul), the award-winning leader in Java runtime solutions, today announced that it was presented with a Gold Stevie® Award for its ReadyNow!™ technology in the products and services category for financial services in The 13th Annual American Business Awards on Friday, September 11.

The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations - public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for "crowned," the awards were presented to winners during a gala banquet on Friday, September 11 at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. More than 250 nominees and their guests attended for the presentation of new product awards, management awards, app awards, and more.

This year's American Business Awards were presented at two events. Stevies for excellence in customer service, human resources, marketing, websites, publications, videos, management, and other disciplines were announced in Chicago in June. Last night's event focused on new product and technology-related categories, tech-related management, and select company/organization categories.

"We're honored to have been named a gold winner in the 2015 American Business Awards for our innovative ReadyNow! technology," said Scott Sellers, CEO and President of Azul Systems. "We are seeing rapid adoption of Zing with ReadyNow!, in particular by our customers in the financial sector. This award validates the clear business requirement for a Java runtime solution that delivers consistent low latency and high scalability for trading and other latency-sensitive Java applications."

Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 200 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process.

"We are extremely impressed with the quality of the entries we received this year. The competition was intense and every organization that won should be proud," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. "To those outstanding individuals and organizations that received Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Awards, the judges and I are honored to celebrate your many accomplishments. You are setting a high standard for professionals nationwide."
