Gartner, Inc. is accepting nominations for the 2016 Gartner Eye on Innovation Awards. Nominations will be accepted through July 31 via an online entry form. Entry is open to any financial institution (not technology vendors or technology services companies) that has implemented an innovation using digital technology capabilities, products or services within the financial services industry in the relevant award categories during the past year.
"Gartner's Eye on Innovation Awards recognize innovative use of technology-enabled capabilities to highlight 'best-in-class' financial industry initiatives and to offer insight as to developments in digital innovation," said Juergen Weiss, managing vice president at Gartner. "These initiatives are vital as catalysts for institutions becoming digital businesses."
The awards will be presented to company honorees in three categories. Presentations by the finalists will take place at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2016 in Orlando, Gold Coast, Australia and Barcelona. The winners will be chosen by the attendees at the events.
Awards will be given in the following three categories:
- Most Innovative Digital Business Model
- Most Innovative Digital Customer Service or Product
- Most Innovative Digital Cost-Saving Initiative
Award submissions are assessed using a robust and dynamic framework to ensure that the assessment process is pertinent and objective. The Gartner Awards Framework (GAF) is utilized as a structured model of assessment that enables the participating organizations to be benchmarked against world-class performance standards. The GAF consists of specialized assessment modules pertaining to the evaluation criteria for each of the award categories. The criteria and subcriteria provide a robust set of requirements that are used as the methodology for benchmarking and learning among the participating organizations.
The identification of a Gartner Eye on Innovation Award winner or finalist is not an endorsement by Gartner of any company, vendor, product or service.
