The categories in the 2013 NASSCCOM Innovation Student Awards are IT Innovation and IT-enabled Business Innovation. IT Innovation is for any IT-related Technological Innovation, so encompasses new processes, innovation design, systems and device innovation. IT-enabled Business Innovation is for any innovation business application or process and could be systems based, cloud based or mobile.
Both categories have the same criteria, namely Innovation, Performance and Potential. Students have to demonstrate that their innovation is unique, provides real user benefits and has great world-wide potential. The judges may confer as many or few awards as they agree meets these key criteria.
The Awards will be presented at CeBIT in Sydney on the evening of Wednesday 29th May, in front of an audience of more than 700 IT Professionals.
