SHENZHEN, CHINA, 18 APRIL 2011- The Hong Kong Computer Society (HKCS) has announced the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2011: Best Business Awards.
Hospitals, utility companies and businesses in areas that have demonstrated excellence in their use of IT were honoured in a ceremony held last week.
Founded in 1970, the HKCS is a non-profit organisation focused on improving and developing Hong Kong's information technology (IT) industry.
The Hong Kong ICT Awards 2011: Best Business Awards aim to build a largescale and internationally-recognised brand of ICT awards for Hong Kong.
The top three recipients of this year's awards are Pulse Media Tech, JM Digital Publishing Platform, FlexSystem, FlexAccount Accounting System and Wharf T&T eBusiness, WeB-eMail Marketing Service (WeB-eM).
Creative ICT solutions
According to HKICTA, the awards encourage local practitioners to continue developing innovative and creative ICT solutions that aim to enhance the reputation of Hong Kong's ICT sector both locally and internationally.
Professor Timothy W. Tong, JP and president of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, chaired the panel of judges this year. The panel was made up of respected industry figures, notes a HKICTA release.
"The flair and drive of everybody who participated in this year's competition was plain to see, and I would like to thank all of them, both for their contribution to this competition and to Hong Kong's collective strength in the field of ICT," said Ir. Stephen Lau Ka-men, J.P., president of HKCS.
"I also wish to record my gratitude to all the judges, assessors, and the Organising Committee. Without them, the competition could not have been as vibrant as it was. As ever, it vividly underscored the role played by ICT and those who work in the ICT field in the success of Hong Kong as a whole."
