Red Hat's Lee Congdon Honored with CIO 100 Award
June 3, 2013
Corporate Communications Team
IDG’s CIO Magazine presented their yearly list of the CIO 100 Awards, and we’re excited to share Lee Congdon, Red Hat CIO and vice president of IT, was named among the honorees. The CIO 100 Awards, now in their 26th year, distinguish those CIOs who have created business value through effective and innovative use of IT, and Lee’s application was reviewed and selected by a team of 42 judges.
"For 26 years now, the CIO 100 awards have honored the innovative use of technology to deliver genuine business value," said Maryfran Johnson, Editor in Chief of CIO magazine & events. "Our 2013 winners are an outstanding example of the transformative power of IT to drive everything from revenue growth to competitive advantage."
Lee’s standout application highlighted the innovative use of open unified communications in Red Hat’s working environment to replace the legacy VoIP telephony system. The flexible platform allows associates to connect using a variety of methods in different environments, all while accessing the communications resources they need, and the entire solution is powered by Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This solution provided not only excellent business value, but was also implemented using open source technology.
Lee was also honored earlier last fall as the Triangle Business Journal’s CIO of the Year, and as a member of Computerworld’s Premier IT 100.
