The TechNet Canada Innovation Award 2007-2008 is awarded to an individual or team of Canadian IT Professionals who are bright stars in the IT community. The award recognizes individuals or teams who have innovatively used Microsoft-based technology to make a positive impact in their work or community. The individual or team is recognized as outstanding IT professionals by their peers and colleagues, but don’t necessarily have to be on the front line. Often times those who stand behind have paved the way for others.
Do you know an individual or team of IT Professionals in Canada who have…

  • Used Microsoft-based technology to make a positive impact in their work place, home or community?
  • Solved technology problems and implemented solutions that improved productivity, created a competitive advantage, or saved time and resources?
  • Went above and beyond the ordinary call of an IT professional?
  • Helped make the world a better place to live through technology innovations?

The TechNet team believes there are thousands of IT Professionals out there, often working behind the scenes, who continuously make a positive impact on our lives.
