The NetworkWorld Asia Information Management Awards, inaugurated in 2012, recognizes Asia's leaders in Information Security, Storage and Data Management for the huge advances made in these fields over the last few years.

2017 marks our 6th annual Information Management Awards. In 5 years, data security and storage needs have grown phenomenally, and many new players have moved into the Asia Pacific market while some traditional players have consolidated. This year's Awards program seeks to recognize these developments as well.

This is the only regional Editors’ and CIOs’ Choice Awards program for this maturing market, backed by leading Asian publications and portals – NetworkWorld Asia, Networks Asia, Security Asia, Storage Asia and Asia Cloud Forum.

The awards are guided by our team of experienced editors with deep and broad industry knowledge, as well as a large panel of CIO judges with domain expertise and deep insights in Information Management.

1) NetworkWorld Asia editors will shortlist 3-4 finalists in some 50 Award categories.

2) The list of finalists will then be put up for online voting by 100 regional CIOs, CISOs and IT heads of end-user organizations.

3) The finalist with the most votes in each category will emerge as the award winner. In the event of a tie, joint winners will be awarded.

4) To recognize the contribution of newer entrants into the Asia market, we have expanded the “Most Promising” award categories. These winners will be awarded if our editors and CIO judges consider them to be potentially disruptive innovators in Information Security, Storage and Data Management.
