If your IT system is bringing true business value to the bottom line, then there is still time to shout about your achievements by putting yourself in for a major industry award. Computer Weekly is supporting two top awards this year:
The British Computer Society IT Professional Awards are the most rigorously examined and prestigious IT awards in the UK.
Combining the BCS IT Awards for Excellence and the BCS Management Awards, this year's award sees a wide range of categories recognising innovation, success and achievement.
Individual awards include IT director of the year, young practitioner of the year and a lifetime achievement award.
The technology awards are for applications, servers and systems and social contribution. The business achievement awards are in the public sector, commercial and industry, and financial services. Shortlisted finalists will make presentations to a panel of judges.
So if you know someone who deserves an award, call the nominations hotline at 0207-378 1188. The closing date is 17 April.
