(1-Jul-10) Info-Tech Research Group deserves kudos for launching a new competition aimed strictly at the often beleaguered IT manager.
The London, Ont. research firm recently announced the winners of its first, but not last, Quest for Canada's Smartest IT, a campaign that resulted in 70 nominations being put forth by organizations of varying sizes from across Canada.
"The IT manager's job, as you know, is not one that gets celebrated a lot," said James Alexander, senior vice president with Info-Tech and CEO (Chief Enthusiasm Officer) of the Quest. "Most do not hear anything unless there is a problem and rarely do we hear about those that are doing a good job."
That all changed in mid-June at a gala event. Below are the winners. The descriptions beside each were written by Info-Tech.
