The CIO of the Year awards, part of the Oracle Excellence Awards, are given annually to CIOs who have displayed unequalled performance and vision in using Oracle technology to improve the organisation, the customer and partner experience, and the bottom line. Congratulations to the 2017 winners:

Dave Curran, CIO, Westpac Group

Curran and his team embarked on an enterprise wide transformation to digitise customer capabilities with a modern technology architecture, while growing revenue and reducing operating costs.

Scott Dillon, Executive Vice President, Chief Technology Officer, and Head of Enterprise Information Technology, Wells Fargo

Since joining Wells Fargo, Dillon has helped to focus the organisation on standardising and modernising technology across the bank, with the goal of reducing risk and costs through simplification. Dillon consolidated and modernised more than 5,000 of Wells Fargo’s Oracle databases — a project seen as one of the most successful IT initiatives at Wells Fargo today.

Yasufumi Hirai, Executive Vice President, CIO, and Chief Information Security Officer, Rakuten

Hirai is focused on driving Rakuten’s productivity and business value, making the most of the company’s big data, and dedicating time and resources to mobile—which accounts for more than 50 percent of its transactions.

Yogesh Malik, Group Chief Technology Officer, VEON

After launching high-speed 4G/LTE networks in six countries in just one year and consolidating networks after mergers in Italy and Pakistan, Malik has taken VEON on an unprecedented global business support system transformation, creating state-of-the-art, data-centric billing and customer care systems.

Greg Meyers, Corporate Vice President and CIO, Motorola Solutions

To support Motorola’s transformation from a products company to a software company, Meyers has focused on the intersection of people, process, and technology. Meyers implemented cloud technology, moved to managed data centers to free resources, and moved disaster recovery to the cloud to give the company more capital and visibility into recurring revenues.

Fredson Oliveira, CIO, Grupo Ultra

Under Oliveira’s direction, Grupo Ultra — including Ultragaz, a liquefied petroleum gas distribution company; Ipiranga, a fuel distribution company; Oxiteno, a multinational chemical company; and Ultracargo, a bulk liquids storage and logistics company—successfully consolidated all of its companies’ disparate enterprise resource planning solutions.

The cloud gives many companies access to new possibilities, for both the business and the IT department. The adoption of the cloud, however, really takes some doing. Now that many organisations are on the threshold of a large-scale transformation, executives involved feel new needs, like dialogue and sharing knowledge with their peers, exchanging experience, organising their position vis-à-vis policy-makers, keeping abreast with supplier developments, and possibly exerting influence on suppliers road maps. Cloud Boardrooms – for and by CxOs – responds to these needs.
