Exceptional tech innovations recognised at Asian Technology Excellence Awards 2023

The prestigious awards programme is now in its third year and held its first-ever physical awards ceremony in Bangkok.

The technological revolution and digital transformation in Asia have ushered in an era of innovation, economic growth, and societal change. As Asia continues to innovate and adapt to the digital age, it stands as a testament to the transformative power of technology in shaping the future of societies and economies.

Asian Business Review seeks to celebrate companies that are successfully riding the digital disruption wave with the third Asian Technology Excellence Awards. The awards programme aims to recognise exceptional technological projects and innovations, from technology companies that pioneered ground-breaking IT products and solutions to innovative technology initiatives that made an impact on businesses.

This year’s entries were evaluated by an esteemed panel of judges consisting of: Steve Lo, Chief Innovation Officer at EY Asia-Pacific; Wilson Chow, Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications Industry Leader at PwC China; Darren Yong, Head of Technology, Media and Telecommunications at KPMG Asia Pacific; Yang Chi Chih, Technology, Media and Telecommunications Industry Leader at Deloitte Southeast Asia; and Jason Yau, Regional Leader, Asia Pacific at RSM International and Partner, Technology & Management Consulting at RSM Hong Kong.

In judging entries, Yong emphasised the importance of the ability to solve complex client problems, along with having a commercial perspective.

“In a fast-moving environment, individuals that can extrapolate and connect in ways that demonstrate their ability to solve complex client problems in elegant ways using technology would be well regarded. Coupled with a commercial view that can deliver scalable value for businesses, these combined qualities would elevate any submission,” he said.
