Erwin Verstraelen (the Port of Antwerp) is the new “CIO of the Year”. On 15 November this year, the Event Lounge hosted the “CIO of the year” competition organised by Data News.
The objective of the CIO of the Year 2018 competition is to reward ICT projects, namely successfully completed digital projects, as well as influential figures who are innovative both in the way they use technology as in their marketing approach. The competition is open to the public and private sectors as well as organisations of all sizes.
The competition focuses on innovation; projects that add real value to a business or organisation through the intelligent use of digital technology. Technological innovation is important, but the impact on the company also plays a very important role.
