Amongst a list of a list of the 10 most outstanding Information Technology managers in the region in 2009, two Qatar residents have been named for a second consecutive year. Mohamed Javeed, Director, Qatar University's Information Technology Services and GV Rao, General Manager, United Development Company's ICT have been honoured by Arabian Computer News (ACN). A range of criterion were fulfilled by the two including the overall impact the achievers had on the regional IT community, as well as taking into account their experience with their organisations.
The top 10 IT managers have been credited with pursuing innovation, creating new means of working where possible and finding better ways of adapting the old technology. Some have worked hard to bring the technology community closer together; others have taken age-old institutions and given them new life.
