Effective collaboration and synergy is imperative in many circumstances, and even more when it comes to designing the architectures that empower the digital world. Only by blending knowledge and expertise we can make complexity look simple, as the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We are honoured to sponsor this award celebrating teamwork and innovation.
