In the first ever UK IT Industry Awards, Capgemini UK received further recognition for its great work and its work on behalf of its UK clients. In an event jointly run by the British Computer Society and Computing magazine, the awards were presented at a ceremony in London on 12 November that was billed as ‘the biggest night of the UK IT calendar’.
One of just two medals for ‘Public Sector Project of the Year’ was awarded to HM Revenue & Customs for its Self Assessment Online project, a flagship programme that was completed earlier this year in collaboration with HMRC’s ‘Aspire’ partners led by Capgemini.
In the ‘IT Project Team of the Year’ category, one of just two medals went jointly to Capgemini and its client Matalan for their effective teamwork in completing this major UK retailer’s Transformational e-Commerce Programme.
A recent graduate Oliver Clarke of Capgemini UK gained recognition as one of a select band of finalists in the ‘Young IT Professional of the Year’ category of the awards, in the awards for individual excellence.
Tom Barton, Head of PR for Capgemini UK, said: ‘It is great to see our teams continuing to win further recognition in a year which has seen us carry off the top prizes in so many prestigious award schemes, ranging from the Guardian Government Computing Awards and the National Outsourcing Awards to the Women of the Future Awards.’
