Digital Transformation Award winners for A/NZ announced

IDC has announced the winners of this year’s 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.

Award winners will 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. The regional winners will be announced on 22 October 2020 in IDC Arena.

Non-bank lender GetCapital received two awards: the overall award for Digital Disruptor of the Year and Omni Experience Innovator. New Zealand Inland Revenue also received two awards: the Information Visionary and Operating Model Master categories.

New Zealand supermarket chain Countdown received the Overall Digital Transformer Award, with other winners including New South Wales Police Force, Newcrest Mining and Auckland Council, who all distinguished themselves for their discernible and measurable excellence in their digital transformation (DX) efforts across the five DX masteries.

This year, the Special Award for Resiliency was awarded to City of Port Phillip – Film Fest. The award recognises organisations that have shown the ability to adapt and respond to changing circumstances, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, while maintaining the organisation’s central purpose, especially for its workforce, customers and other stakeholders.

Tehmasp Parekh, Managing Director of IDC Australia and New Zealand, congratulated the winners and finalists for their work.

“This year’s best-in-class have been chosen as DX champions for being able to successfully implement digital initiatives that address the CEO’s agenda on meeting new customer requirements, developing new capabilities, ensuring new critical infrastructure and participating in new industry ecosystems,” Parekh said.

Mark Denvir, Director ICT, Auckland Council, was named as 2020 DX Leader for Australia and New Zealand. The NSW Police Force was named as 2020 Talent Accelerator for Australia and New Zealand, while Newcrest Mining – Data Science Platform for Optimising Mining Process was named as 2020 DX Gamechanger for Australia and New Zealand.

IDC’s DX Awards follow a two-phased approach to determine the country and regional finalists and winners, with each nomination evaluated by local and regional IDC analysts against a standard assessment framework based on IDC’s DX taxonomy.
