CMP Media's Intelligent Enterprise Announces Winners of the Fifth-Annual Readers' Choice Awards for Best IT Products
Audience of 100,000 Strategic IT Decision-Makers Picks Which Applications, Software Tools, and Enabling Products are Better Than the Rest
CMP Media's Intelligent Enterprise announced today the winners of the Fifth-Annual Readers' Choice Awards for best IT products. Through the voting process, Intelligent Enterprise subscribers-including C-level executives, top application development managers, data management and business intelligence decision makers-have determined which IT products best enable an "intelligent enterprise." These are the products that help organizations deploy strategic applications that collect, analyze, and deliver business information wherever and whenever it's needed to improve business performance and maximize customer relationships.
"The Readers' Choice Awards are a wonderful example of how Intelligent Enterprise serves as an interface between solutions providers and their customers," said Justin Kestelyn, Editor-in- Chief of Intelligent Enterprise. "Through their participation in the voting process, readers communicate directly which solutions best meet their unique needs for developing, implementing, and managing strategic business applications."
"Businesses today are under tremendous economic and competitive pressure," said David M. Kalman, Group Publisher of Intelligent Enterprise. "They have to focus their IT investments on products that information into intelligence. Their competitive edge depends on how well they can collect and organize information, then analyze, understand, and act on that information to make better decisions and improve businesses processes. Intelligent Enterprise subscribers plan and deploy these strategic business applications, and in the process directly influence strategic IT purchases for applications, software tools, and enabling platforms. The Intelligent Enterprise Readers' Choice Awards highlight the IT products that deliver a competitive advantage."
Voting was open exclusively to Intelligent Enterprise subscribers. Results will be published in the October 30, 2002 issue of Intelligent Enterprise magazine. Readers made their choices among several categories of products in the four Intelligent Enterprise technology focus areas: intelligence, integration, infrastructure, and collaborative commerce. Readers also voiced their opinions about what new technology is most important to the intelligent enterprise. Visit www.IntelligentEnterprise.com for the full story.
