Hitachi Data Systems has launched online public voting for its second annual Asia Pacific IT Inspiration Awards. The awards are designed to recognise the challenges and offerings of enterprise data proliferation.
According to Hitachi Data Systems, the awards received 130 nominations from more than 70 companies in the Asia Pacific region. TelstraClear won the best virtualisation strategy category in 2008.
ANZ managing director Neville Vincent says the sharing of knowledge and success stories will be beneficial to the industry.
“This year’s awards categories will set new benchmarks, bring new insights and most importantly be an ideal learning opportunity for companies to success in the uncertain economy.
The categories are: CIO of the year and CIO of the CIO’s, best green strategy for a data centre, most innovative use of technology, best return-on-assets strategy and best virtualisation strategy.
Voting closes on Friday, October 16. The winners will be selected through public voting and a judging panel made up of judges from Hitachi Data Systems, IDC and Gartner.
Voters go in the draw to win LCD TVs.
