CIO OF THE YEAR
WHO WILL BE THE NEXT ‘CIO OF THE YEAR’?
Who will be the successor to Guido Lemeire, CIO at NMBS-SNCB, as ‘CIO of the Year’? Who do you think deserves the title CIO of the Year 2021? The voting list will be determined by the editorial staff of Data News and will be published on October 4th. The voting is open until 24th October at midnight.
The names, included in the list, will be the top 3 of the CIO’s active in our country or Belgians working abroad. They have proven that the job of CIO is one of the most exciting, challenging and important functions in the business world today. Thanks to their visionary approach, they have been successful at using ICT tools for the benefit of operational management. The CIO’s have, in the course of their careers, demonstrated strategic vision, leadership, personality and the capacity to contribute to an organisation’s business strategy.
The winner of the award ‘CIO of the Year 2021’ will be chosen by a professional jury of specialists and by the readers of Data News (online voting).
Any questions or do you want to suggest one or more CIO’s for the voting list?
ICT / DIGITAL PROJECT OF THE YEAR
The CIO of the Year 2021 contest wants to reward ICT projects and digital projects which have been successfully completed and which are innovative both in the use of technology as well in the business approach. The contest is open to both the private and public sector and to both large and small or medium sized organisations.
The emphasis is on ‘innovation’; projects that have achieved real added value for a company or organisation thanks to clever use of digital technology. Technological innovation is important, but the impact on the business also plays a very important role.
The size of the company or the scope of the project is not important. Clever, innovative, smaller applications have just as much chance of winning as large and expensive projects. You just need to be able to demonstrate that the innovative ICT Project has given the business a real boost or added value!
Are you an ICT manager or project manager and have you successfully completed an innovative digital project over the last year (or part of a project running over several years)? Then make sure you take part in the ‘Digital Project of the Year 2021’ contest!
Please, fully complete the registration form as this information will be used by the jury to make a preliminary selection of all applications. And please note: the deadline for submitting your file is the October 17th. A professional and academic jury will decide upon the final winners.
The programme will be available soon.
