CMP Media's Intelligent Enterprise Identifies the 2003 Companies to Watch
48 IT Solution Providers Contributing to the Development Of 'Intelligent' Enterprises
CMP Media's Intelligent Enterprise Magazine announced today that its editors have selected 48 Companies to Watch as strong contributors to the development of intelligent enterprises. The companies are the leaders in providing IT products that help organizations achieve competitive advantage by gathering, analyzing, sharing, and acting upon intelligence. "IT and business leaders will increasingly rely on these 48 companies to make their organizations smarter, faster, and more profitable," said Justin Kestelyn, editor-in-chief of Intelligent Enterprise.
The Companies to Watch are divided into four foundation categories that are fundamental to complete IT solutions -- intelligence, integration, infrastructure, and collaborative commerce. The Intelligent Enterprise editorial team selected the 48 companies based on their relevance to and potential impact on the strategic IT sector in which they are categorized. "Because intelligent enterprises are characterized by their strength in four areas of strategic IT -- Intelligence, Integration, Infrastructure, and Collaborative Commerce -- we recognize 12 companies in each category for their respective contributions," said Kestelyn.
The selection process involved a tremendous amount of research and assessment of the past year's coverage and reader feedback by the Intelligent Enterprise editorial staff. "Rather than base our decisions on just one criterion such as total revenue or name recognition, we look at technology leadership, customer innovation and satisfaction, and sheer influence in areas key to the development of data-rich, value-generating IT solutions," said David Stodder, Editorial Director of Intelligent Enterprise.
The Companies to Watch selection coincides with the 2002 Intelligent Enterprise Dozen announcement, which designates the 12 IT solution providers most strongly enabling the development of 'intelligent' enterprises. In-depth features about the 48 Companies to Watch and the Intelligent Enterprise Dozen will appear in the January 1, 2003 edition of Intelligent Enterprise, as well as on the Web at www.IntelligentEnterprise.com.
