BIMA and Air21 also recognized for excellence in digital transformation efforts, all three winners to compete against Asia/Pacific finalists in regional summit
MANILA, November 22nd, 2017 - IDC concluded its 11-month search for the Philippines’ best digital transformation (DX) initiatives, naming Maynilad Water Services Inc. as the 2017 “Digital Transformer of the Year” in the inaugural run of IDC DX Awards. IDC DXa recognizes organizations that have significantly transformed their served markets, through digital and disruptive technologies.
BIMA and Air21 also received distinctions at the awards, winning as “Digital Disruptor of the Year” and “DX Leader for Operational Transformation” respectively. The winners displayed remarkable and measurable excellence in their DX efforts across the three DX masteries, and showcased efforts to transform or disrupt their markets.
“The advent of DX has massively impacted the Philippines, redefining traditional industries, strengthening relationships with end-users and clients, and flattening organizational structure,” said Jubert Daniel Alberto, Head of Operations for IDC Philippines. “The need for change, driven by external and internal pressures to ride the wave of disruption and heightened competition, is paving the way for significant transformation initiatives locally. The winners of the awards prove that DX is not just a business strategy, but an operational imperative for any organization today. The high DX awareness among Philippine businesses underscores the importance of transformation initiatives in transitioning to the new digital economy.”
The winning organizations of IDC DX Awards 2017 in the Philippines and their outstanding DX initiatives are:
“The journey to digital transformation is not without risks and challenges, so it’s fitting to recognize those who have not only paved the way towards change, but also made the leap and never looked back. In the DX economy, creative use of technologies will be the biggest equalizer among competing organizations and economies within the region. It is thrilling to see this level of innovation form the Philippines and we look forward to more local DX success stories in the coming years,” said Sudev Bangah, Managing Director IDC ASEAN.
The Philippine IDC DX Awards winners were selected through three rounds of panel judging and scoring following IDC’s proprietary DX MaturityScape Assessment. In enforcing the highest level of transparency and impartiality in the evaluation process, each submission was reviewed and deliberated on by IDC Asia/Pacific senior analysts.
The three winning organizations from the Philippines will soon join the exclusive shortlist of IDC Digital Transformation Awards winners from other participating countries, as the regional search culminates in IDC’s DX Summit, scheduled November 28th, 2017 at Gardens by the Bay, Singapore. This closing event seeks to name Asia’s best of the best, with regional winners being announced for the following categories: Digital Transformer of the Year; Digital Disruptor of the Year; DX Leader - L3D Mastery; DX Leader - Information Visionary; DX Leader - Omni-experience Innovation; DX Leader - Operational Transformation; and DX Leader - Talent Acceleration.
