Nominees for IT Leader Prize 2017 Announced

March 30, 2017

On March 30, 2017, the nominees for the annual IT Leader Prize award in information technology were unveiled based on performance in 2016. The winners within 20 regular categories will be selected via open online voting to be held from March 30 to April 20.

Over 15 years, the National IT Leader Prize has successfully been drawing attention to organizations and individuals who actually promote IT development in Russia. Having analyzed the 2016 list of nominees, we saw that, in addition to traditional integration projects, Russian enterprises preferred non-standard solutions mainly powered by innovative technologies and services. Moreover, during the last year digital innovations raised greater interest among oil and gas companies and public authorities, with educational institutions also being active in digitalization initiatives, said Sergey Makedonsky, Chairman of the IT Leader Prize Expert Council.

The projects nominated in 2016 include business manageability improvement, online company health monitoring powered by BI and Big Data technologies, outsourcing, integrated ICT-infrastructures for stadiums and airports, as well as Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and enterprise technology expertise management systems for more effective manufacturer performance.

The IT Leader Prize winners will be selected online. From March 30 to April 20, any adult Internet user may judge the nominees contribution to the development of digital innovations and economic achievements in Russia and, together with nominees, can see the choice made by the members of the Prize Expert Council, which consists of the most competent representatives of leading global IT and consulting companies, and reputable mass media outlets. Nominees who receive the Expert Council members' votes are marked as selected by the Expert Council. In the case of an equally divided vote for certain nominees, the Expert Council will have the deciding vote.

The winners will be announced on April 20, 2017, at the IT Leader Prize Award Ceremony. The event concept Atop a New Wave will attract the attention of the business community to the changing IT market landscape, while the nominated projects will highlight the coming of a new digital era. The Award Ceremony will be a private meeting, with only senior managers of the largest companies, vice presidents for strategy and business development, logistics, finance, operations, customer service, marketing, and CIOs being invited. These are persons whose position allows them to support the most promising IT market trends by initiating unique technology projects and thus driving their companies to a new level of efficiency.

Kommersant Publishing House is the General Information Partner of the IT Leader Prize 2017.
