A global recognition of
excellence in Digital Engineering

‘Engine’ comes to us from ‘Ingenium,’ the Latin word for talent. It also stands for ‘ingenuity,’ or the quality of being original and inventive.

It stands to reason then that the Digital Engineering Awards celebrate and honor business and technology leaders challenging the status quo and creating a sustainable tomorrow through effective use of technology and innovation.

The first-of-its-kind award offers its winners formal recognition and an entry into the select ER&D circle, a first-citizenship community managed by ISG and L&T Technology Services (LTTS).

The Digital Engineering Awards, however, stand for more.

Just as the first telescopes, invented almost six hundred years ago, transformed our understanding of the universe, the Digital Engineering Awards aims to drive enterprises in shaping to their transformative ideas, setting the stage for radical, sustainable, and planet-positive changes.

The awards program is rigorously judged by an independent peer-group panel led and managed by ISG, a global research and advisory firm for Digital Engineering.

What does it really mean for the participants?

The DE Awards stands apart as the most prestigious accolade honoring excellence in Digital Engineering.
