How We Selected Sydney’s Best TIBCO BusinessWorks Consultant

Voting for Sydney’s best BusinessWorks Consultant was restricted to the short-listed 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 short-listed nominees*. These votes were combined using a weighting of 45%, 45% and 10% respectively to provide a total score for each short-listed nominee.

How We Selected The People’s Choice for Sydney’s Best TIBCO BusinessWorks Consultant

Voting for Sydney’s best the People’s Choice for Sydney’s Best BusinessWorks Consultant was a popular vote open to the public. Each voter was asked to select who they thought were the three best BW consultants from the short-listed nominees*, and they were asked for their email address for verification purposes. Only votes that were confirmed by reply email were counted and the short-listed nominee with the highest votes was selected as the winner.

* The order of the short-listed nominees was randomised for each vote, to prevent bias that could be caused by presenting the list in a static order.
