NOMINATE NOW: For the second annual Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA)

Nominations are now open – it’s time to celebrate female excellence

The second annual Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA) is officially open for business, with nominations running from October 8 until October 22, 2013.

WIICTA will be presented at a lavish luncheon in Sydney at the Ivy Ballroom on Wednesday November 27.

Last year, the inaugural awards were a resounding success with more than 120 ICT professionals attending the event.

This year, there are six awards that recognise and celebrate female excellence in the ICT channel, rewarding professional achievements and outstanding results in the industry. The awards are: Achievement; Rising Star; Entrepreneur; Innovation; Technical; and Community.

These awards recognise the very best in the channel, celebrating the achievements of a talented crop of female front runners who have made it through to become influential figures in Australia’s ICT industry.

The awards also recognise the ‘rising stars’ in the industry, women who are quickly growing in importance in the ICT industry.

This year, the WIICTA awards will have a similar nomination process as 2012, whereby the nominee can either self-nominate or be nominated by a co-worker, colleague or manager.

Now that the 2013 awards are live, the nominations page is listed on the WIICTA homepage. Just click through. Alternatively, click on the WIICTA Nominations link to nominate and for all the details.

The 2013 Judging Panel has been selected and comprises three women from the ARN Hall of Fame, some key senior executive managers from companies who have a strong ethos of gender diversity, and some winners from the 2012 WIICTA.

The Judging panel is as follows: Pip Marlow (Microsoft); Maree Lowe (ASI Solutions); Wendy O’Keeffe (Westcon Group); Sara Adams; Kellie Reeves (Dimension Data); Mark Whittard (Toshiba); Duncan Bennet (VMware); Brenton Smith (Symantec); Margrith Appleby (HP); Andrea Della Mattea (Insight); Michelle Zamora (IBM); Dominic Whitehand (WhiteGold Solutions); Dawn Edmonds (NewLease); and Alister Dias (EMC).

Happy WIICTA season and good luck on your nominations!

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
