1998 Innovator Awards

Innovation is fundamental to success in business. And with innovation comes risk. Each year, the editors at Application Development Trends and a team of consultants from Keane Inc., a Boston-based integration, and consulting firm, honor I/S organizations and developers for taking a risk to build an application that brought a competitive advantage.

In this fourth annual Innovator Awards issue, we recognize and profile the winning entries and several runners up in seven categories of development.

The 1998 competition attracted well over twice the number of submissions from I/S organizations ever attracted by the magazine. Bill Champitto, manager of emerging technologies at Keane, noted that for his team, "it was very inspiring to see the types of quality, innovative development efforts underway in today's I/S shops."

The judges at ADT and Keane thank all the readers who took part in the competition and say that we're looking forward to reviewing even more innovative projects next year.
