The search for Australia’s CIO of the Year has begun
iTnews will celebrate the achievements of Australia’s technology leaders in early 2016 at the fourth annual CIO Benchmark Awards.
The awards seek to set a new benchmark for recognising technology leadership in the Australian business community and within government.
The Benchmarks uncover the best projects delivered in our industry. Success, in our book, is the creative application of technology solutions to large and complex problems. It’s about technology teams delivering measurable value to the business, to customers or to the public at large.
Past winners include ING Direct's Simon Andrews; William Confalonieri, chief digital officer at Deakin University; Former CBA CIO Michael Harte; Damon Rees, now CDO at Macquarie Bank; and Domino’s Pizza CIO Wayne McMahon.
Entries for IT projects that were either completed or delivered calculable results from December 1, 2014, to October 1, 2015, are eligible. Entries will close at midnight on October 30, 2015.
Finalists will be named in late November 2015 at an exclusive event at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney.
On February 17, 2016 these finalists will join over 100 other top Australian technology leaders at the CIO Strategy Summit held at Melbourne’s Grand Hyatt Hotel as we crown Australia’s CIO of the Year.
I look forward to reading your submissions with my fellow judges and joining you for a fantastic evening in Melbourne.
