Masdar Institute ICT Director Sofiane Benna was nominated by American technology giant Dell to receive the Chief Information Officers (CIO) 100 Award 2016, which took place in Dubai in January. He was awarded for his role in providing a critical interface between the institution’s operations and ICT, combining a keen understanding and perspective of academic-related requirements with the experience and knowledge in mobilizing ICT to meet such requirements.

The award ceremony was preceded by a forum which featured keynote presentations from CIOs, who shared their experiences and insights on transforming business processes within their organizations through IT.

Organized by Computer News Middle East (CNME), the CIO 100 Award is endorsed by International Data Group (IDG), a leading technology, media, events and market research company.
