– Amidst a gathering of 400+ CIOs and ICT Business Leaders 28 ICT brands were recognised with the CIO CHOICE 2017 Honor & Recognition Title in 52 categories at the exclusive Red Carpet Night. The evening also celebrated the 5th Anniversary of CIO CHOICE, the only independent ICT Vendor Recognition platform—Voice of CIOs in India.

This marquee 5th annual CIO CHOICE Recognition landmark event, focusing on companies based or operating in India, was the by far the most competitive in its history, with the highest number of nominations and entry submissions to date. More than 200 entries were received this year, from a wide array of public and private ICT vendor companies, both large as well as small and medium enterprises, and from a variety of geographic regions in India. There was a distinguished CIO Advisory panel that oversaw the selection process, with KPMG as the knowledge partner.

Winners of CIO CHOICE 2017 were determined by an independent CIO voting survey from across the country. ICT vendors were judged on product performance, customer satisfaction, and continued customer service. CIO CHOICE is a recognition and validation that CIOs can trust because it is ‘By the CIO and for the CIO’. It offers the CIO community an authentic aid to finding and considering the most preferred and stable products, services and solutions. Having earned the honour to wear the CIO CHOICE Trust Seal, ICT vendors will be enjoying new media campaigns and amplified CIO exposure thereby resulting in increased sales.

"CIO Choice trust seal is a Gold Standard and validation from the CIO community as it is the Voice of Customer recognising the brand as a Trusted Partner and displays Customer Centricity," said Anoop Mathur, Founder & President, Centre Of Recognition & Excellence. "By being voted by CIOs, these companies have proved their expertise in specific technology areas, placing them among the top percentile of enterprise ICT vendors in India. When CIOs look for an ICT partner to meet their business challenges, choosing a company that has ‘THE TRUST’ of the CIO Choice Logo is an intelligent move. They are a set of CIO endorsed ICT brands with successful deployments at their customer ends."
