About The Awards

Digital transformation is disrupting every industry by breaking down barriers between people, businesses and things. Transformative innovations in technologies such as networking, security, collaboration and multicloud are making their presence felt in enterprises at exponential speed, ushering-in the change businesses need, to not only survive but thrive.

And to do that CIOs and their teams must work in tandem to create the next-gen enterprise. The CIO Circle of Excellence Awards is a platform to recognize and celebrate visionary CIOs who have made significant contributions to the acceleration of digital transformation and led their organizations to success - in other words, achieved business resiliency.

This year the focus of the awards is Business Resilience. We are felicitating leaders who have overcome obstacles and demonstrated grit and resilience. We will be awarding 3 CIOs from each of these regions – ANZ, ASEAN, China, Korea, Japan, India & SAARC - who have demonstrated their ability to quickly adapt and respond to business disruptions in the face of the global pandemic.
