IDC Digital Transformation Award Finalists Announced For Australia And New Zealand

IDC has announced this year’s finalists in the Digital Transformation (DX) Awards for Australia and New Zealand. The Awards recognise the achievements of organisations that have successfully digitised one or multiple areas of their business through the application of digital and disruptive technologies.

Winners will be announced at the virtual DX Summit and Awards on 14 October.

IDC Australia and New Zealand Managing Director, and judge, Tehmasp Parekh, said “The COVID-19 pandemic underscores the importance of digital transformation in the eyes of CEOs across all industries. With a recession hitting us, CEOs are at a decision point – to follow the same course of cost cutting as all previous recessions have dictated, or to flatten their own organisation's recessionary curve by leveraging technology. This year’s finalists embody the leadership that Australia and New Zealand businesses have shown under trying conditions to build business resiliency. Congratulations to each finalist. We look forward to celebrating the achievements on the 14th of October.”

IDC’s DX Awards follows a two-phased approach to determine the country and regional finalists and winners. Each nomination is evaluated by a local and regional IDC analyst against a standard assessment framework based on IDC’s DX taxonomy.
The winners will go on to represent Australia and New Zealand in the regional awards, where they will be benchmarked against other winners in the same category to ultimately determine the region’s best of the best.

IDC defines Digital Transformation (DX) as the approach where organisations drive changes in their business models and business ecosystems by leveraging digital technologies (e.g. Cloud, Mobile, Big Data/Analytics, Social and IoT) and competencies. Business ecosystems are comprised of customers, partners, competitors and the business itself, along with its business and regulatory environment.
