Coveted Award Recognizes Successful Development and Implementation of Innovative Applications by IT Departments

CHATSWORTH, Calif. – May 10, 2006 – Application Development Trends, a leading software trade industry publication, today announced the 2006 Innovator Award winners. For 12 years, Application Development Trends (ADT), through its Innovator Awards, has recognized IT departments that have successfully developed and implemented innovative applications that paid off with significant business and financial benefits.

Application Development Trends congratulates our 2006 Innovator Award winners,” said Michael Alexander, editor-in-chief. “What distinguishes this year’s winners is that they were all adaptable. Some IT teams tussled with fast-changing business conditions; others grappled with post-merger integration; and still others launched new architectures for e-business and make-or-break products.

Winners were judged on their project’s objectives, how the objectives were achieved, and the element of risk the winners took to build and deploy their projects. Winners were chosen in five categories as follows:

Category: Data Warehousing
