Aberdeenshire Council claim top prizes at Connect ICT awards

Aberdeenshire Council has been named Scotland’s ICT team of the year and its Head of IT has been recognised as the ‘Digital Leader’ of the year for Scotland’s public sector at the Connect ICT awards.

Aberdeenshire Council has been named Scotland’s ICT team of the year and its Head of IT has been recognised as the ‘Digital Leader’ of the year for Scotland’s public sector.

At the third annual Connect ICT awards in Glasgow, Aberdeenshire Council took two of the top prizes, fighting off competition from Edinburgh College and the University of Edinburgh to claim the team award.

On accepting her Scottish digital leader award, Head of IT at Aberdeenshire Council, Nicola Graham said: “Don’t let anybody tell you that IT in the public sector is not exciting and innovating – it’s a fantastic place to work.”

The authority is one of the first Scottish public sector bodies to implement a cloud-based service management tool for its IT services.

The Connect ICT awards were chosen by a panel of six Scottish IT experts. Other winners include Shetland Islands Council claiming the ‘Project Delivery Award’, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde received the ‘Mobile Award’ and ‘Digital Health Award’.

The Scottish Housing Regulator also took home two awards: the ‘Citizen Award’ and ‘Insight Award’.
