For the fifth time in the region, CPI is all set to raise the bar with the regional version of the well-known IDG global CIO 100 Awards programme.  

The CIO 50 Awards honour the many innovative ways that IT delivers competitive advantage or accelerates business success in the enterprise. Organisations need the edge that information technology provides to move ahead, and the high-performance IT organisations that win CIO 50 awards are helping to build better business processes, foster collaboration or get closer to customers and emerging markets.

To be selected, applicants must show not only that they have executed their project well, but that they have done so in unique and innovative ways. That could be through pioneering a new technology, applying a familiar technology to a new purpose or generally setting the bar higher for their competitors. 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.   

CIO 50 honourees will receive their awards at our annual CIO 50 Conference & Awards Ceremony, to be held at The Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Dubai, on 27th January 2014. Honorees will also be featured on February issue of CNME magazine.

Deadline: All entries due 15th January, 2014
