IDG’s CIO has named Granite as a 2021 CIO 100 award winner. For more than 30 years, the CIO 100 awards have recognized innovative organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of strategic and operational excellence in information technology.
The annual CIO 100 Awards celebrate 100 organizations and the teams within them that are using IT in innovative ways to deliver business value, whether by creating competitive advantage, optimizing business processes, enabling growth, or improving relationships with customers. The award is an acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence.
Granite’s winning entry is based on their data strategy called Granite DataXchange (GDX). GDX is a bundle of tools, products, and services built and deployed over the past three years. It includes the data warehouse, tabular model, Power BI, and other tools, along with a Boomi integration layer that pulls it all together.
With GDX, Granite has empowered a financial transformation with automated reporting and dashboards, electronic invoicing which enabled a reduction in days sales outstanding (DSO), and an award-winning e-ticketing program.
“Despite the CIO label, this is a team award,” commented Granite Chief Information Officer Malcolm Jack. “The entire IT organization has been working hard to mature, innovate, and elevate technology at Granite, and this award is recognition of success.”
“This year’s CIO 100 class demonstrates an amazing array of initiatives. Many helped their organizations thrive during the dark days of the coronavirus pandemic, whether by directly addressing new realities in health care or business or expediting digital adoption to adapt,” said Anne McCrory, Group VP, Customer Experience & Operations, IDG Communications, Inc. “We are honored to showcase these achievements and the spirit behind them at this year’s virtual CIO 100 Symposium & Awards in August.”
Executives from the winning companies will be recognized virtually at the CIO 100 Symposium & Awards. Coverage of the 2021 CIO 100 award-winning projects will be available online at CIO.com in the weeks and months leading up to the event and in the summer issue of CIO’s digital magazine.
