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.’
