Anaeko attend DL 100 final at the panoramic Aqua Shard in London


The Digital Leaders 100 Awards are over, after their 9th successful year celebrating the individuals and organisations from the public, private and non-profit sectors who are demonstrating a pioneering and sustainable approach to digital transformation in the UK. We had an incredible time attending this event and watching  this year’s winners be selected high above the London skyline on the 11th of November.

Anaeko were proud to sponsor the ‘Big Data Innovation’ category at this years Digital Leaders 100 Awards in London. Anaeko our thrilled to have sponsored a category that seeks to highlight tremendous innovation in the technical industry. Organisations are increasingly defined by their data and how they use it. This award is for a digital product or service that in the last year has had a measurable impact and delivered real outcomes in the field of big data.

The DL100 list is created by public vote and celebrates the teams and individuals who are working hard behind the scenes to secure the UK’s Digital Transformation. Digital leaders have been asking the public to help find these digital pioneers from across the UK and from the public, private and non-profit sectors, every year since 2013. While the selection process is led by industry professionals, the final result in each category is decided by public vote, so it was fantastic to see such a strong public present during the lead up to the event and the final itself.

Digital Leaders is an initiative that has created a shared professional space for senior leadership from different sectors promoting effective, long-term digital transformation. Our community of 100,000 senior leaders are involved in leveraging technology to promote economic growth, increase social well-being and narrow social gaps across the UK.
