Info-Tech Research Group has launched a nationwide contest to recognize and reward both Canada’s smartest and greenest mid-market IT departments.

“In the true spirit of community, we’re issuing a challenge to Canadian
IT professionals to share their stories, best practices, tips and aha
moments through our website and social networks so that departments
across the country can get smarter,” says James Alexander, senior
vice-president for Info-Tech Research Group.

During the four-month campaign, the research firm will comb the country
searching for and interviewing Canadian IT departments with a smart
story to tell. The interviews can be viewed on YouTube and Facebook.

A short nomination form is available on the CONTEST WEBSITE to make
entering yourself or a colleague quick and easy. Along with bragging
rights, rewards include having your story featured along with your
company logo in CIO Magazine and Computerworld Canada, and a night of
celebration an awards gala in Toronto.

In addition to awarding the best of the best, The Quest for Canada’s
Smartest IT promises to engage and educate mid-market organizations on
the smart use of technology, to drive value for themselves and the
communities in which they live and work.

The quest ends April 25.
