Honorees receive award during CIO 100 Symposium & Awards Ceremony
IDG's CIO magazine today announces BT as a recipient of the 2014 CIO 100. The 27th annual award program recognizes organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology (IT).
“For 27 years now, the CIO 100 awards have honored the innovative use of technology to deliver genuine business value," said Maryfran Johnson, Editor in Chief of CIO magazine & Events. “Our 2014 winners are an outstanding example of the transformative power of IT to drive everything from revenue growth to competitive advantage.”
BT was honored for its groundbreaking analytics and visualization tool, BT Assure Analytics, which provides businesses with ongoing intelligence about the security of their infrastructure and network. The tool combines real-time interactive visual modeling and crunches massive amounts of raw, unstructured data in minutes to detect patterns and predict problems. In addition, the system is able to learn from past events and help predict future criminal activity and threats.
“It is a tremendous honor for BT to be named in the 2014 CIO 100,” said Bas Burger, President of BT in the Americas. “We are incredibly pleased with the work our teams have done to create BT Assure Analytics, and even more, we are proud of the tangible results this tool has already created for clients. To date, BT Assure Analytics has enabled more than 150 global companies to better protect against cyberattacks with an intelligent command-level view of all critical assets and data.”
Executives from the winning companies were recognized at the CIO 100 Symposium & Awards Ceremony, held Tuesday evening, Aug. 19 at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
About the CIO 100
Recipients of this year's CIO 100 Award were selected through a three-step process. First, companies filled out an online application form detailing their innovative IT and business initiatives. Next, a team of external judges (many of them former CIOs) reviewed the applications in depth, looking for leading-edge IT practices and measurable results. Finally, CIO editors reviewed the judges' recommendations and selected the final 100.
Coverage of the 2014 CIO 100 Awards are available online at CIO.com and in the August 1st issue of CIO magazine.
