Mardia van der Walt-Korsten, CEO of T-Systems South Africa, and Rabelani Dagada, manager of the ICT and knowledge management division of the Royal Bafokeng Administration, have been named this year's IT Personality and IT Visionary winners respectively.

Now in its 30th year, the IT Personality of the Year award, presented by the Computer Society of South Africa (CSSA) at the President's Annual Awards banquet, recognises an individual who has made an exceptional contribution to the industry in the past 12 months.  Consensus among the panel of judges this year was that Van der Walt-Korsten has moved T-Systems in South Africa to a tier one position by creating a dream with which the company's employees identify, enabling them to own their contribution to solving problems and achieving goals. The new ICT Visionary award aims to recognise an executive in an ICT user environment who has shown exceptional foresight and helped transform business by implementing or adopting leading-edge technology.
