Black Box Earns Spot on 2012 InformationWeek 500 List of Top Technology Innovators
Posted on Wednesday, September 19, 2012
PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, September 19, 2012 — Black Box Corporation (NASDAQ:BBOX), a leading communications system integrator dedicated to designing, sourcing, implementing and maintaining today’s complex communications solutions, announced today that it once again made the InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation's most innovative users of business technology.
Black Box CIO Kim Clougherty says, "A list like the InformationWeek 500 shows how important innovation is to companies, not just for their customers, but also for their internal business practices. Innovation in technology provides great benefits for our own Team Members, and it's an honor that our efforts are being recognized."
The project that highlighted Black Box's innovative technology use was the consolidation and relocation of the company's data center. Through virtualization and centralization of this vital operation, Black Box clearly demonstrates its commitment to doing technology well to maximize its business value.
"The InformationWeek 500 has recognized the most innovative users of business technology for 24 years, and this year's innovations were particularly impressive," said InformationWeek Editor in Chief Rob Preston. "What the editors looked for are unconventional approaches—new technologies, new models, new ways of grabbing business opportunities and solving complex business problems with IT."
InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of American's best-known companies. The Information 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
