Amman Stock Exchange CIO Mohammad Al-Khatib picked up the CIO of the Year trophy at the ‘ACN Arab Technology Awards', held at the Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai last night.

Other big winners included Dubai Bank for IT Department of the Year, DiGiNet for Telecoms Implementation of the Year, Saudi Arabia's Supreme Commission for Tourism for the Government Sector Implementation of the Year, and ADWEA, for Energy and Utilities Implementation of the Year.

On the supplier side, Cisco walked away with Vendor of the Year, while Etisalat took home Enterprise Service Provider of the Year, and ITQAN won in the Enterprise Systems Integrator category.

"Tonight's awards are designed to honour the region's enterprise computing industry - both the information technology companies driving the sector forward and the end user organisations that are utilising IT to achieve real business goals," said Walid Akawi, CEO, ITP Publishing Group.

"The choices enterprises make - in systems, in vendors, in implementation partners and service providers - are all critical to the success of a project, and so to the long-term success of the enterprise," he added. "Organisations that have made the right choices, and are reaping the benefits, are those that we honour here."

The 14 awards handed out last night covered the region's key verticals, as well as individual and company achievements. Winners were selected by a judging panel, which included Mohammed Shah, CTO at Al Madinah Knowledge Economic City, Alistair Sinclair, CIO of Mashreq, and Todd McGregor, managing director of Forrester Middle East.
