CIO Awards - revisited.

What a pleasant surprise to dredge this up while googling around...

CIO Asia - Retrospectively
Stellar examples of CIO 100 Honourees in years past who moved on to win the CIO Awards.

The CIO Award was awarded to the company I work for (and still do) back in 2001, and it was quite a nice surprise as we were up against the best in the region. The team, headed by David Cheah, found it was a great experience building an e-commerce site from scratch.

I was involved in the technical aspects of creating the site as well as the back-end processing. Making the lives of our customer reps easier in setting things up. The fun part was actually working closely with 'marketing' and building up the site to meet their requirements. It was really gratifying seeing results in terms of sales almost instantaneously.

Since then the online shop has spawned from a skeleton crew to a full fledged department working to fulfill orders all 'round the world. I have since moved on from that project but lately, I am involved in another aspect of B2B web app. Which is almost as interesting. Its also great to have had experience in the now archaic MIVA scripting language and now in C# and ASP.NET.

Ah memories...

yk.
