Distinguished industry leaders from the world of IT in the region will come together to assess some of the projects and IT leaders in the region worthy of recognition. A region-wide search for top IT projects and leaders has recently named the judges for this year's search.
The IT Excellence (ITX) Awards 2012 by the IDC Asia/Pacific and Fairfax Business Media (FBM Asia) will recognise IT organisations and CIOs who have exhibited management excellence, and the original and creative use of technology to help attain business goals.
This year's panel of judges include senior IT chief IT officers and experts. They include:
- Daniel Tan, director, Centre for Educational Development, Nanyang Technological University;
- Steve Lee Hee Kwang, CIO and senior vice president for Technology, Changi Airport Group;
- Eric Lauzon, chief information officer, International Baccalaureate;
- Alvin Khoo, regional IT director, DSM Nutritional Products AP;
- Sandra Ng, group vice president, Practice Group, IDC Asia/Pacific; and
- Tim Dillon, associate vice president Asia/Pacific End User & Mobility Research, IDC Asia/ Pacific.
The awards are open to enterprises with projects in the region. The ITX programme will award winners from seven categories: Best Change Management, Best IT Governance, Best Security Strategy, Best Business Enabler, Best Knowledge Management, Best Bottom-line IT, and Emerging Technology.
The criteria to evaluate the projects will include how the idea was conceived, its implementation, synergy created with the enterprise's overall business strategy, and specific results such as cost savings, increased sales, time to market, improved margins, new revenue streams, improved shareholder value, increased productivity, reduced customer churn rate, reduced staff turnover, and reduced downtime.
Winners of the awards will be announced on 2 August 2012 at the Singapore leg of IDC's Asia/Pacific CIO Summit 2012.
This year's summit for Singapore and Kuala Lumpur will be a venue for CIOs and senior IT executives to be inspired and draw action from presentations and case studies to be featured in the summit. Participants can also learn global trends, learn from IT best practices and network with industry peers.
