Over the years, each organization has a unique justification for its continued participation in this awards competition.
1. One of the company's CEOs believes that entering this competition paves the way for a conversation to take place with a global community of practitioners and potential clients.
2. A number of chief information officers (CIOs) have the opinion that it boosts economic potential of IT investments by enhancing the level of transparency that exists within internal systems.
3. In certain instances, the decision of management to engage drove the team to solve difficulties rather than conceal technical and business challenges.

You can put your faith in us since several of our jury members and Rating consultants have collaborated directly with Mr. John Zachman and his colleagues.
Just like every year, we poll the members of our jury as well as our associates to get their recommendations on projects or initiatives that have broken new ground and can be invited for participation in this program. So you should anticipate hearing from us. If you are the reader of this blog, I strongly suggest that you enter the competition that is taking place this year.
