Reseller News Women in ICT Awards - Nominations now open…

Distributors, vendors and partners can now celebrate the achievements of a talented crop of female front runners who have become influential figures in New Zealand’s ICT industry.

Nominations have officially opened for the Reseller News Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA), celebrating gender diversity and recognising female excellence in the Kiwi channel.

Following an overwhelmingly positive response from the local channel since launching in March, distributors, vendors and partners can now celebrate the achievements of a talented crop of female front runners who have become influential figures in New Zealand’s ICT industry.

After listening to market feedback, we are pleased to announce the introduction of Community, which joins Rising Star, Entrepreneur, Innovation and Technical as the five categories honouring individuals.

Reflective of IDG’s continued dedication to the local market, WIITCA will be held at a lunch celebration at the Sofitel Hotel in Auckland on Friday, June 17, honouring individuals across four categories; Rising Star, Entrepreneur, Innovation and Technical.

Nominations close on April 22, with finalists revealed on April 29 before an esteemed panel of 15 judges - across distributor, vendor and partner markets - cast their votes.

Here’s a quick rundown of the categories…

Rising Star

The Rising Star award recognises the candidate with a commitment to continuous career advancement and a proven desire to reach the next level of professional development.

The candidate - who has been working in the ICT industry for under 10 years - is growing quickly in importance in the ICT field, demonstrating outstanding business acumen and professional integrity.

Entrepreneur

The Entrepreneur award recognises the candidate who has achieved outstanding results in the ICT industry; an enterprising individual who has achieved success through risk-taking and initiative, often shattering the status quo in business in order to set up new ventures, products or new services.

The candidate will show a proven track record of finding new and better ways of doing business, continually pushing the envelope in the ICT industry.

Technical

The Technical award recognises the candidate who has excelled in the IT and engineering segment of the market, demonstrating a proven depth of knowledge and abilities. The candidate will demonstrate excellence in problem-solving and decision-making skills, and an exemplary level of accomplishment in job performance.

Community

The Community award recognises the candidate with exemplary service to the ICT sector, through philanthropic initiatives and efforts to foster a positive working environment for women in IT.

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.
