Intelligent Enterprise Editors' Choice Awards 2010

Intelligent Enterprise names 'The Dozen' most influential vendors for the intelligent enterprise and 36 'Companies to Watch' in 2010.

Intelligent enterprises aren't just surviving in challenging times, they are thriving. They are improving internal operations and developing innovative products and services with the help of better insight into customer needs. They are rapidly adapting to changing business conditions. They are increasing customer satisfaction by improving the quality of products and services. And they are doing all of these things with the aid of technology.

To recognize technology providers that are helping practitioners to lead the way, Intelligent Enterprise presents its 11th Annual Editors' Choice Awards. Our editors and contributors considered scores of vendors that are delivering outstanding products and services. We view all 48 companies on our Editors' Choice list as leaders, but a select group of 12 were named among "The Dozen" elite companies that will matter most to intelligent enterprises in 2010. We highlight 36 vendors as "Companies to Watch" in three categories:

Business Intelligence
Enterprise Applications
Information Management

Our Editors' Choice award nominations were a collaborative endeavor, with extensive input from seven experts who are regular Intelligent Enterprise contributors:

Rajan Chandras, integration expert and author
Seth Grimes, Alta Plana
Cindi Howson, BI Scorecard
David Linthicum, data integration and cloud computing expert
Curt Monash, Monash Research
Alan Pelz-Sharpe, CMS Watch
David Stodder, Perceptive Information Strategies

We are grateful for the input and analysis provided by these experts. However, Intelligent Enterprise Editor-in-Chief Doug Henschen was responsible for the final selection of "The Dozen" and "Companies to Watch." We encourage practitioners and independent experts to share their comments in our discussion forum (below), while those representing or otherwise tied to individual vendors should send comments to dhenschen@techweb.com.
