Entries and nominations are now open!

Deadline for entries: 17 May 2013

The CIO Summit will once again be held in conjunction with the IT Excellence Awards (ITX). Previously launched and run under the auspices of MIS Asia magazine (Fairfax Business Media Asia’s flagship media property), the Awards recognise IT organisations and CIOs for management excellence and for the original and creative use of technology to help attain business goals.

Entering its 11th year in 2013, the ITX programme has seen a significant rise in its judging standards and boost in prestige from IDC AP’s direct participation.

This award not only acknowledges the individual contribution of the CIO while applauding the management team for having the foresight to go where few have gone before, it also calls out the judicious use of resources across the entire enterprise as well as rewards the contribution of the entire IS/IT team in delivering the most effective technology and information delivery models to their business users.

The nomination period is now open for new IT projects / systems / initiatives / services implemented in Asia in the past year.

Submission is free and does not require registration.

The ITX Award winners will receive their awards at the annual CIO Summit, to be held in Singapore, 31 July 2013.
