Which information governance practitioners, programs, and providers are doing the most to push IG forward? We’ll find out soon enough.

The awards will be given to the people and companies the information governance (IG) community determines deserve recognition for their IG efforts, commitments, and successes.

Here’s the catch: As you are a member of the IG community, we need your help.

Know anyone who goes above and beyond in the IG space? Does your company rely on IG providers to handle their information governance needs? Is your boss the Chief Information Governance Officer (CIGO) that should be the envy of other similar executives?

If so, please take a moment to nominate individuals and businesses for the following six award categories:

  • IG Professional of the Year: This individual has demonstrated excellence in the development of his or her company’s IG program in 2015.
  • IG Program of the Year: This Company (corporation or law firm) has masterfully developed, advanced, and managed its IG program in 2015. (Note: To submit for this category, please include the name of the organization you’re nominating as well as your reason for nominating it. We’ll also need the contact information from the nominees and nominators.)
  • IG Technology Provider of the Year: An IG product provider that has demonstrated excellence in their products in 2015. Organizations who primarily earn their revenue from products (e.g., software, hardware, etc.) are eligible for this category. For the purposes of this award, organizations that provide professional services primarily derived from the implementation, configuration, and use of their product are considered Technology Providers, and are not eligible for nomination in the Service Provider category. Some organizations have divisions that separately provide both products as well as services not derived directly from those products and are thus eligible for nomination in both the Technology and Service Provider award categories. The Awards Committee reserves the right to adjust nominations in accordance with these guidelines.
  • IG Service Provider of the Year: An IG services provider that has demonstrated excellence in their services in 2015. Organizations who primarily earn their revenue from professional services (e.g., consulting, legal services, etc.) are eligible for this category. For the purposes of this award, organizations that provide professional services primarily derived from the implementation, configuration, and use of their product are considered Technology Providers, and are not eligible for nomination in the Service Provider category. Some organizations have divisions that separately provide both products as well as services not derived directly from those products and are thus eligible for nomination in both the Technology and Service Provider award categories. The Awards Committee reserves the right to adjust nominations in accordance with these guidelines.
  • IG Evangelist of the Year: This IG professional has done the most to advance IG in 2015; his or her devotion to IG will be evidenced by professional and/or personal activities.
  • CIGO of the Year: This IG executive has demonstrated excellence in his or her respective field, serving as a visionary trailblazer in the important new C-suite role.
