Head of ICT at Aberdeenshire Council, Nicola Graham, has been named digital leader of the year for Scotland’s public sector.

Graham collected the award at the third annual Connect ICT awards organised by PublicTechnology's sister title, Holyrood, in Glasgow earlier this week.
 
Aberdeenshire also saw off competition from Edinburgh College and the University of Edinburgh to collect the ICT team of the year award.
 
Over the last two years, Aberdeenshire has become one of the first Scottish local authorities to fully embrace a ‘cloud-based’ service management tool for ICT delivery.
 
“Don’t let anybody tell you that IT in the public sector is not exciting and innovating – it’s a fantastic place to work,” Graham told an audience of almost 200 as she collected her award.
 
The awards, winners of which were chosen by a panel of six ICT experts chaired by ScotlandIS public sector liaison, Tommy Laughlin, also saw the Scottish Housing Regulator and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde collect two awards apiece.
