About the Awards

Digital is the means for  continuance in a business ecosystem that is increasingly driven by consumers, regulation, and frequently changing market conditions. As organizations prepare to go digital, they will appreciate that the journey to digital is not an easy one. Digital means different things to different people. But to be truly digital, an organization must digitize all its processes, end-to-end. It should also take its ecosystem of partners, employees and customers along on its digital journey.

The BW Businessworld Digital Leadership and CIO Awards has been conceived to acknowledge the people who significantly contribute to the digital transformation of their respective organizations – the people who lead the change and make an impact, be it technology leaders or functional heads. These awards and recognition are for projects that have been executed and implemented over the last 18 months.
