The award for IT Company of the Year was won by Siemens Group IT Solutions and Services. The judges took into account their long-term creation of added value in the IT industry in Slovakia.

The winner of the category IT Project of the Year was a project to create a free-of-charge cadastral internet portal. The commission praised the contribution of the project for citizens, the service’s popularity, and the fact that it was one of the first e-services for the public, which in this case contributed, among other things, to an increase in the legal security of property owners. The commission also praised the improvement of the quality of the data in the cadastral database.
