I thank all my colleagues who have worked passionately in all the projects, both those nominated and those that were awarded the Winner title in their entrance categories. Having received three awards in a large scale competition that recognizes excellence in IT reconfirms us that what we do at SIVECO has value at international level. We are the only Romanian company which was awarded and the only European company triple laureate. For several hours the Romanian language was spoken in London and I was very proud of it", declared Radu Jugureanu, AeL eContent Manager SIVECO Romania, immediately after the awards ceremony.
“The judges had a tough job deciding on the winners of this edition. There were nearly double the number of entries this year, all of a very high quality.

At the Vertical Market Solution of the Year category, the jury selected the information system developed for the National Bank in Moldova. This had as main objective the development of a new financial reporting model from commercial banks towards the central bank, which is based on XBRL format, being thus aligned to the European standards in the area.
