Future Enterprise Awards 2023 Celebrates IT Pioneers; Winners Announced

This prestigious awards event came to life last night at the impressive Habtoor Palace Dubai, LXR Hotels & Resorts, as enterprises and IT leaders gathered for the hotly anticipated Future Enterprise Awards 2023.

Sponsored by Platinum Sponsor- Dell Technologies, Cybersecurity Partner – Fortinet and Gold Sponsors – Commvault, TP-Link & Trend Micro, this prestigious event celebrated innovators who helped pioneer revolutionary new solutions, leveraged disruptive technologies to transform the business operations of their customers and helped cultivate an environment, which has allowed innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship to flourish.

During his opening address, CNME Editor Mark Forker praised the leadership shown by the IT industry across the Middle East region over the last 12 months.However, he outlined how harnessing the power of Generative AI would be a key focus over the 12 months. “McKinsey has said that the organisation of the future will be enabled by Generative AI, but will be led by people. However, it warned that Generative AI can empower people—but only if leaders take a broad view of its capabilities and deeply consider its implications for the organisation. And McKinsey research shows that gen AI could enable automation of up to 70 percent of business activities, across almost all occupations, between now and 2030, adding trillions of dollars in value to the global economy”.

“The Future Enterprise Awards are designed to highlight the technology leaders and enterprises that are pushing new boundaries as to what is possible in the new digital economy. Over the last 12 months they have demonstrated incredible leadership and vision in their pursuit of new innovations and technologies in a bid to transform our society. On behalf of CPI Media Group, we want to extend a sincere thanks to all our sponsors for making this event happen, and once again to all our trailblazing winners”, Kausar Syed, Group Publishing Director, CPI Media Group.

Another highlight was the announcement of the winners of the Future Enterprise Awards 2023. The objective of the awards is to pay homage to the companies and individuals from the IT ecosystem in the Middle East that have demonstrated phenomenal excellence in the field of IT and technology.
