More about The Celebration


What makes the Real IT Awards special is that the judges are selected from your peers. They are therefore impartial and independent from any vendor / supplier interests. Of course we make sure judges do not sit on panels evaluating their own company's submissions.


Our distinguished judges are recognised by the IT community for their ability in Corporate IT leadership and vision.


About the Judges


“British Gas is proud to have taken part and won the Operational Efficiency Award at the prestigious and coveted 2016 Real IT Awards. This underpins our vision to be world class in our IT and transformational services and to be recognised by the esteemed Corporate IT Forum is an official recognition of our hard work, IT Strategy and delivery. It was a fantastic night for networking, recognition and meeting the industry peers who share a similar vision, working towards improving the IT landscape across the UK and overseas. Highly recommended and a must attend evening in the calendar for all IT professionals out there who wants to make a difference!”

"Virgin Media was privileged to win 'Partnership of the Year’ with our test partners Accenture and since winning the Real IT Award our joint teams have gone from strength to strength and our now seen as flagship services in our respective companies. The motivation the award has given our people has been tangible in addition to significantly growing our reputation across Virgin Media’s technology and business organisation (recognised by our CEO). The evening itself was hugely enjoyable; a great networking event and well organised. Were excited about participating again, and hopefully repeating our success, in the 2017 awards."
