Quixtar Wins Innovation Award

The Inside Stories of the Innovation Award Winners

Back at the Spring COMMON user group meeting, IBM announced the second of its annual Innovation Awards. The awards are designed to showcase the achievements of iSeries and System i users who have done--as the name suggests--innovative things with the platform. We promised we would give you the inside stories of the winners, and here they are.

Our intent was to profile the 2006 winners and finalists for each category. We weren't able to reach everyone (although we tried, repeatedly), so we have had to give a snapshot of some of the companies that IBM deems the most innovative in their use of the System i5.

IBM reports having received more than 50 nominations across the five different award categories of Application Deployment, Business Resiliency, Infrastructure Simplification, i5/OS Leadership, and Education Excellence. A judging committee composed of two COMMON board members, two IBM members, and one industry analyst was then assigned to each category. This committee then ranked and scored each nomination based on the following criteria:

Demonstrates business innovation Supports outstanding achievement Highlights business value to the company and its end users Is considered a best practice in the industry Stands out from the others nominated in the category
