IT Vanguard Awards in NA
Together working to recognize the unsung heroes of the Customer Experience.
Introducing the IT Vanguard Awards!!
As America’s most famed inventor, Thomas Edison, once said: “There’s a way to do it better—find it.” *
This is a mantra of many IT network and enterprise communications professionals. They’re working hard behind the scenes to build, deploy, manage, and optimize processes and technologies to make end-users lives easier and deliver consistent value.
They’re the unsung heroes of the customer experience. But it’s time to change that.
Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is proud to present the inaugural IT Vanguard Awards recognition program, where we’ve engaged a judging panel of industry experts to pay homage to network and communications leaders across North America finding new ways to do better.
And we’d like your help!
It’s Time to Recognize IT Leaders
This is a call for nominations. We’d like to invite you to share stories about IT network and enterprise communications professionals who are challenging the status quo and delivering significant value to end-users and the business.
Nominations should provide a description of how the nominee leveraged technology to deliver an exceptional experience to their customers. Your nominee can be a friend, colleague, peer, boss, or even yourself. And all the details can be found at https://itvanguardawards.com/.
Introducing Our Expert Judges
Our panel of judges have diverse backgrounds and significant technology experience. Once the nominations are in, the panel will join Michael See, ALE’s Chief Technology Officer of Network Business, in reviewing the nominees and choosing this year’s IT Vanguard awardees.
