AWARD CATEGORIES

This category seeks to identify outstanding advances made in cloud products and services, whether this is in terms of security, flexibility, implementation or maintenance. The judges will be looking for demonstrable evidence of new and unique work.
Security threats to business operations and personal data are becoming ever more common and complex, and the ways in which security products have had to respond mean that there is a need for constantly-evolving technology innovations to keep users and systems safe. This category considers the best overall solutions.
Whether using mobile applications for banking or travel, paying via your phone or consuming content, mobile devices are now an essential part of the vast majority of people’s lives. This category is for those innovations which push the boundaries of mobile.
Analytics or Big Data projects that have had a major impact are welcomed here. The impact will be determined relative to the size of the issue rather than in absolute terms, but in all cases the entry should outline an issue that was solved, or discovered, by use of data and how it was successfully resolved.
Technology can be a good public servant, and from national government departments to local council units, the public sector has embraced the way in which technology can advance services and increase efficiencies. We are looking for one project that exemplifies how innovation and technology can help make public services better for the end user.
The judges are looking for outstanding examples of how technology has been harnessed to solve enterprise wide issues. From banking to retail, broadcast to manufacturing, the winning entry will need to combine insight and implementation of tech - whether that be hardware or software - to the highest standards.
This award honours those individuals and organisations using technology to improve the lives of others and the world around us. It recognises corporate social responsibility, charity work or green and sustainability initiatives that are driven or implemented using pioneering digital techniques. Entries will be judged on their effectiveness, innovation and overall commitment to doing good.
This award recognises the most effective project to integrate disparate systems or update legacy technology. Projects involving moves into the cloud, post-deal integrations, digitisation efforts or partnerships and collaborations, are all eligible. Nominations may be for a single project or an overall strategy. The winning entry will be able to demonstrate how technology has brought cost benefits, improved internal processes and generated new opportunities.
