In case you haven't received a personal message from me, I would like to tell you that we are now open for nominations to the 2013 IT Excellence Awards or ITX, the programme that seeks to recognise the most progressive IS/IT organisations and CIOs for management excellence, particularly in steering their businesses down the road of high profitability with the strategic use of information and communications technology.
The ITX 2013 awards programme is now run through a partnership between MIS Asia, CIO Asia and IDC Asia/Pacific. The nomination period officially runs until May 17. However, if you require more time to file your nomination-for any projects, systems, initiatives, services launched in recent years that find especially noteworthy-please get in touch with me directly and I will help you.
I urge you to enter the ITX 2013 programme, because I want you to have your say about what you think of the state of ICT deployment in Asia today-and where you think and like to see it going.
That is one way of the most effective ways for you to share your thoughts with us. The other one is our upcoming CIO Summit 2013, which is also rooted in our (MIS Asia and CIO Asia's) partnership with the region's top industry analyst firm, IDC Asia/Pacific. Entering its second year, the CIO Summit is the foremost gathering of CIOs and senior IT executives in Asia, providing senior ICT executives a great number of platforms for sharing ideas and advisory services.
This CIO Summit 2013 will be held in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong. And we are currently working on incorporating more end user speakers, industry case studies and customer perspectives into the programme.
At this point, I would like to point something out. The CIO Summit agenda and theme is drawn up in close consultation with a panel of Asia's leading enterprise IT leaders assembled by Fairfax Business Media Asia (the publisher of MIS Asia) and IDC AP.
It is essentially a programme for CIOs by CIOs. But we want to extend a channel to you, our readers. So: Write to us, telling us what you would like to see included in the programme for this and subsequent CIO Summit events.
Also (of course): If you have nothing to say about this year's ITX or CIO Summit, but you have something else to get off your chests, please write to me. I will try my best to help.
