ADT 2003 Innovator Awards

Progressive IT organizations don't let a flagging economy or global instability keep them from using innovative solutions to solve pressing business problems. That said, we had no trouble finding novel IT development projects to evaluate for the ninth annual Application Development Trends Innovator Awards competition. The problem was picking winners from so many praiseworthy entries.

ADT's editors and a team of experts from Boston consulting firm Keane Inc. spent countless hours evaluating more than 50 projects to determine this year's winners. The judges looked at the willingness of development managers to take substantial risks to build systems that provide a competitive advantage. These days, we give even more credit to managers willing to risk corporate profits and even their own careers to gain an edge during hard times.
