Windy Road Technology is proud to announce the five short-listed nominees for Windy Road™’s Inaugural Sydney’s Best TIBCO BusinessWorks™ Consultant Award.

The short-listed nominees are the nominees that received the highest votes during a closed voting round. The voting was restricted to the nominees (they were not allowed to vote for themselves), Sydney users of TIBCO products (by invitation from TIBCO and limited to one vote per organisation) and guest judge Paul Scott-Murphy (Regional CTO, TIBCO Software)*. Each voter was asked to select who they thought were the three best BW consultants from the list of nominees**. These votes were combined using a weighting of 45%, 45% and 10% respectively to provide a total score for each nominee. As similar system will be used for the second round of voting.

We will also be giving out a people’s choice award. Voting for the people’s choice award is open to everyone.

The second round of voting will closed at 11:59pm on the 5th of March 2014. The winners will be announced shortly on the Windy Road website.
