"The Computerworld Honors program is dedicated to recognizing the efforts of those who have demonstrated outstanding and visionary applications of technology," said Bob Carrigan, publisher and CEO of Computerworld and chairman of the Computerworld Honors Program Chairmen’s Committee. "We take a great deal of pride and dedication in not only selecting the laureates, but also insuring that their original and innovative thinking is preserved and protected for future generations."
According to Dan Morrow, a founding director and chief historian for the Honors Program, "This year’s Laureates exemplify the very best in the creative use of IT in service to mankind. Their work and their stories are outstanding contributions to the history of the information technology revolution in every sense of the word, and, for the archives we serve all over the world, they are, truly, priceless."
The 2005 Collection, which will now be archived in libraries, museums, and academic and research institutions around the world, will serve as primary source material for scholars and as a resource for individuals who hope to use information technology to create solutions to address their own challenges.
The project which attracted the award is a Document Image Management solution that converted 75,000 member folders, over 10 Million pages to electronic Adobe PDF files. Visit the Computerworld Web site listed below to read our case study.
