Top Global Chief Architects

ICMG is happy to create a new award category, i.e., "Top 25 Global Chief Architects" to recognize their contribution to the growth of their organization using Enterprise & IT Architecture. 

This award also acknowledges Chief Architect's ability to use architecture practice to prepare organizations for rapid change, support growth initiatives and influence capabilities that serve as "business differentiator." 

The annual listing will be created from the Top 25 Regional Chief Architect list. This year, it will cover 14 countries. 

Furthermore, their efforts supplement the adoption of Enterprise and IT Architecture as an emerging discipline. ICMG Architecture Awards of Excellence are given to companies who have successfully used architecture in achieving their business goals. There are multiple award categories for which nominations are invited every year.
