The Middle East CIO 50 Awards will celebrate the top 50 organisations (and the people within them) that are using information technology in innovative ways to deliver business value, whether by creating competitive advantage, optimising business processes, enabling growth or improving relationships with customers.
Perhaps you took a risk on an emerging technology, or deployed the tried and true in a new way. Maybe you built a better business process, or fostered closer collaboration. Or you found ways to get more from existing customers, to pursue new markets, to save money, to make more. Here's your chance to tell your peers about the technology innovations that have enabled or led the way to greater success for your organisation. To be selected, applicants must show not only that they have executed their project well, but that they have done so in uncommon, innovative ways: pioneering a new technology, applying a familiar technology to a new purpose, setting the bar higher for their competitors. And they must demonstrate business value beyond a mere positive ROI, to show how the project changed the way they do business (whether internally or externally) or repositioned them competitively. WHAT'S IN IT FOR APPLICANTS A CIO 50 award is an acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence. Because the award is given to companies rather than individuals, it's an honour everyone on staff to take pride in. Executives from honoured companies will be recognised among their peers and colleagues at the CIO 50 Forum and Awards ceremony, to be held in Dubai, in January 2013.
