Constellation announces the winners of the 2013 SuperNova Awards at Constellation's Connected Enterprise.
Six months and three hundred disruptive technology projects later, and we've finally whittled this group of early technology adopters down to seven winners--one for each SuperNova Award category.
These SuperNova Award winners emody the SuperNova Award spirit to fearlessly push the adoption and development of new technologies within their organizations. Not only did these SuperNova Award winners evangelize the development of new technologies within their organizations--their projects created disruptions within their industries and created real business value for their companies.
All applications were evaluated by the SuperNova Award Judges, comprised of industry thought leaders, and then put to a public vote.
And the winners are....
Consumerization of IT & The New C-Suite - Chris Plescia, IT Leader, Collaboration, Nationwide
Matrix Commerce - Alan Hilburn, Director – IT Transportation & Operations, PSC, LLC
Data to Decisions - Roman Coba, Chief Information Officer, McCain Foods Limited
Digital Marketing Transformation - Karen Simmons, Senior Director, Enterprise Data Warehouse, Kelley Blue Book Co., Inc.
Future of Work - Greg Hicks, Director IT, Social and Collaborative Innovation, UnitedHealth Group
Next Generation Customer Experience - Pierre Bourbonniere, Head of Marketing, La Société de transport de Montréal (STM)
Technology Optimization & Innovaton - Don Whittington, Vice president and CIO, Florida Crystals Corporation
The winners were announced at the SuperNova Award Gala Dinner which is held the first night of Constellation's Connected Enterprise Innovaton Summit. Constellation was honored to host many of this year's SuperNova Award finalists as well as last year's winners. If only five percent of technology consumers can be considered "early adopters", all the finalists of this year's awards represent the cream of the crop of that five percent.
All SuperNova Award Winners win:
One pass to Constellation's Connected Enterprise 2014
One one-year subscription to Constellation's research library
Congratulations to the winners! Continue to be brave, innovative, and disruptive!
Karen Simmons, Senior Director, Enterprise Data Warehouse, Kelley Blue Book Co., Inc.
