The awards program highlights projects such as mobile apps, social collaboration, big data analysis and use of the cloud, and entries demonstrated the many ways that organizations are leveraging new technologies to serve their customers and employees and drive innovation. Consumer technologies are impacting all industries and the awards program attracted entries from pharmaceutical companies to state government, transportation and retailers, among others.
One winner was named in each of six categories, and special awards were given to two additional organizations, at an awards ceremony this morning. Senior IT executives had scored the pool of 33 finalists using specific criteria for each category.
"We were extremely impressed with the caliber of the finalists, especially those who devised creative solutions to bridge complicated legacy architectures to bring modern functionality to employees and customers," said Matt Rosoff, editorial director for the conference's companion news website CITEworld.com. "Often this required a cultural shift in the organization as well."

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
