Business cloud software provider Infor has named Bega Cheese CIO Zack Chisholm as the recipient of its first CIO of the Year award in Asia-Pacific as part of its 2020 Customer Excellence Awards.

Chisholm was chosen by Infor which evaluated each applicant for the awards on scope and depth of performance improvement, quantifiable business benefits, customer focus and satisfaction, and technology use and innovation.

The publicly listed Bega Cheese is a dairy and food producer of cheese, infant formula, nutritional powders, and home to one of the most iconic brands in Australia - Vegemite.

Led by Zack Chisholm, Infor says Bega, led by Chisholm, has been working to “transform the technology landscape to support the business growth and to lay the foundations to better compete on a global stage”.

Bega has implemented Infor’s Testing as a Service (TaaS) cloud solution allowing it to achieve the benefits from the latest technology while minimising risk.
Infor says that after implementing Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage, the Bega has been able to further optimise a range of processes across the supply chain, finance and operations, and by using the TaaS solution has more certainty with its results by minimising disruptions to production.

“I’m extremely proud to receive the CIO of the Year award from Infor, and for the recognition of all our team's hard work at Bega Cheese,” said Chisholm.

“Infor has been a key partner in our journey to the cloud and in order to keep pace and manage some of the challenges we have faced this year with natural disasters such as drought, bushfires and now the pandemic the team have been working hard to achieve the pace of change we need to support the business.

“We have hit many milestones together with Infor, and one highlight has been our ability now to script and automate our testing end to end and increase our pace of change. Testing our environment now takes 16 hours, down from 450 hours in the pre-Infor, manual days. This vast improvement has been a real enabler for rapid change in the business.”

“The Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage solution is built specifically for the F&B sector. Its comprehensive system architecture has enabled Bega to accelerate its global supply chain and bring products to market faster,” said Infor ANZ managing director Jarrod Kinchington

“Bega knows that technology plays a critical role in keeping them agile as it continues to grow, and we’re so proud to help Zack and his team deliver stellar results during and beyond their transformation journey.

“Our deep industry expertise and ability to rapidly deploy cloud technology has enabled Bega to quickly respond to the many challenges currently being faced by the sector, and future-proof its IT investments to deliver maximum return on investment.”
