Nominations will now be accepted up until September 13th for the event that will be held at Godolphin Ballroom in Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Dubai, on October 14th.
The ICT Achievement Awards 2012 will bring together prominent industry stakeholders from across the region as it recognises the best among twenty different categories.
As this year has seen regional organisations aggressively return to growth paths, the focus of the event will be on innovation and the daring use of latest technologies that has enabled these companies to do so.
With IT budgets regaining strength among most enterprises, and as some particular verticals push for expansion plans, this year’s Awards ceremony looks to crown the IT heads and the companies that are truly setting the trend for everyone else to follow in the region.
Even as innovation remains the focus for this year’s Awards, the category winners would also have displayed extraordinary logic and far-sightedness in the use of available resources to consistently provide ROI for their firms (or end-user customers in the case of vendors and service providers) – sometimes in the short term, and always in the long term.
“As the region recovered from the recession, last year’s Awards was about identifying and honouring the enterprises and individuals who had used technology to effectively support functions of recovery within the organisation,” said Richard Judd, MD at CPI Technology and Business.
“ICT Achievement Awards 2012 is quite different. This year around its focus is turning rapidly to innovation and dare-devilry in the use of the latest in technology, as regional organisations return aggressively to growth paths. As budgets regain strength among most enterprises, and as some particular verticals push for aggressive expansion plans, this year’s Awards ceremony looks to crown the IT heads and the companies that are truly setting the trend for everyone else to follow in the region,” he added.
