Stephen Gibson

AfterDark is the winner of the APAC 2017 Fujitsu SELECT Innovation Award!  With the award, Fujitsu recognises AfterDark Technology for being the most successful partner in helping customers drive digitisation and digital transformation in the APAC region.

AfterDark’s Virtual CIO (vCIO) service allows a strategist and technology specialist to advise without the cost of a full-time role. This unique service can provide guidance and direction to the entire business, to individual business units, teams and individuals.  As part of this service we will report to your management team or board to ensure the business is fully utilising the IT facilities and understands the influence it exerts on unrelated business activities.  In addition, this service has been used to mentor teams and individuals for professional development. During this process your team will become strategically focused and provided with key tools to help them organise and manage both their daily activities and interactions.

The SELECT Innovation Awards recognise the exceptional roles that Fujitsu’s SELECT Registered and SELECT Expert channel partners play in helping businesses co-create digital transformation and human centric innovation – Fujitsu’s unique approach to creating business and social change by empowering people with advanced technology. Channel partners achieve this not only through their expertise, but also by being recognised as trusted advisors, working alongside customers to co-create solutions to address their business challenges. Fujitsu’s annual SELECT Innovation Awards are designed to incentive partners to ensure that each project they take employs a solution-led approach backed by a solid understanding of new technologies.

A committee of expert judges consisting of top Fujitsu executives reviewed all submitted award entries and evaluated them based on the extent to which the project had a transformative effect on the customer’s business, the level of innovation demonstrated, the intelligent implementation of Fujitsu products and services and the extent to which it helped bring to life Fujitsu’s human centric approach to digitalization. After narrowing the field to a shortlist of three runners-up, WWS was unanimously selected as 2017 SELECT Innovation Award winner.

Stephen Gibson, Founder and Technical Director of AfterDark, said “I am very honoured to receive this Innovation Award on behalf of all the AfterDark Technology Team.  Our vCIO service is provides a solid framework, service catalogue and delivery team to ensure our client’s are making the most of technology to improve their business and daily lives.”
