Last year,, iCMG initiated a new award category, i.e., "Global Business CIOs" to recognize CIOs contribution to the growth of their organization using Enterprise & IT Architecture. This award also acknowledges CIOs ability to use architecture practise to prepare organizations for rapid change, support growth initiatives and influence capabilities that serve as "business differentiator."
Furthermore, their efforts supplement the adoption of Enterprise and IT Architecture as an emerging discipline. iCMG Architecture Awards of Excellence are given to companies who have successfully used architecture in achieving their business goals. There are 21 award categories for which nominations are invited every year.
This recognition is first of its kind, as it evaluates CIOs based on their leadership to "projects" or " initiatives" with a high degree of business influence and measurable results using Enterprise & IT Architecture. It's interesting to note how these Global CIOs are shifting to "Architecture centric" decision-making process to guarantee sustainable business value.
