Industry Domain iAwards recognise excellence in the application of ICT in a number of vertical markets that delivers productivity improvements.
From robots in advanced manufacturing, to ICT systems that power cities and undepin financial institutions and mining exploration and operations on which our economy is based, technological innovation is the driving force which makes it all happen.
Australian ICT developments are at the cutting edge of world innovation of processes, systems and operation procedures and are now widely utilised internationally to increase productivity and output while maintain sustainable and ethical practices.
The application of ICT in the financial sector is critical to the success of organisations within it, and to giving them a business edge in this highly competitive market.

Industry is experiencing a new industrial revolution with the digital economy the overarching motivator and deliverer of change within this sector. Encompassing areas across a range of industry segments including advanced manufacturing, construction, transport, logistics and utilities.
Australia is regarded as a leader in ICT industry innovation and many locally developed products and processes have made their mark internationally. From small business to giant enterprises, industry has embraced ICT innovation to deliver improved outcomes in industrial processes and activity.
Australia’s abundant mineral resources, sophisticated mining equipment, technology and services industry, and proximity to the rapidly growing Asian markets, have made it a world leading mining and oil and gas nation. Next generation improvements in productivity are likely to come from innovations in the fields of automation and integration of the overall knowledge base seamlessly across the resources value chain.
Digital productivity is core to this vision through dealing with large and complex data sets, extracting knowledge from data, building intelligent and automated machines suitable for remote operation and in integrating the mining, oil and gas processes -- from exploration through extraction, processing to end-of-life rehabilitation. A strong focus on R&D and innovation in the resources sector includes the development of mining, oil and gas software and equipment; scientific analysis; exploration assessment technology; processing technology; environmental services; and health and safety services and equipment.
