Ingenious Awards: See you at the Gala
Turning ideas into products and services is easier said than done, but for the nominees competing for Information Technology Association of Canada’s 2016 Ingenious Awards, the struggle to innovate, collaborate and focus on excellence could pay off.
The accomplishments of the 2015 winners provide a glimpse into the power of ICT to solve health care problems, help move ideas from campus to commerce, keep our roads safer and moving efficiently with smart technology, connect students in northern communities to educational advantages of students in southern Canada and to use technology to improve top athletic performance.
Ingenious Awards celebrate the use of technology to improve the performance of large and small businesses, large and small government operations and not-for- profit organizations.
Last year fifty seven nominations were scrutinized by judges from the CIO Association of Canada who looked for clear demonstrations of measurable achievement and innovation related to the use of information and communications technology to address opportunities and challenges.
Nominations came from across Canada. The winners will be announced at the Ingenious Awards Gala Dinner on November 8 in Toronto, a glittering affairs that brings together the top leadership of Canada’s ICT community for a night of celebration. Information and gala ticket registration
Last year ITAC joined with CanadianCIO (published by IT World Canada) to create a new award recognizing overall excellence among Canada’s community of Chief Information Officers. ITAC is pleased to announce The ITAC CanadianCIO of the Year Award will be presented in an expanded format last year, with two awards: one for the private sector and one for a public sector CIO. In both cases the awards recognize CIOs who have demonstrated business and technological vision, entrepreneurship, a capacity to drive enterprise transformation and a measurable operational strength that delivers shareholder or stakeholder value.
The gala promises to be an exciting, fast-paced evening with Duncan Stewart as host. Duncan is the Director of Technology, Media & Telecommunications Research for Deloitte Canada. The evening provides an opportunity to celebrate the diversity and growth of our industry.
