IDG's CIO magazine today announced that PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) is a
recipient of the 2014 CIO 100. The 27th annual award program recognizes
organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of
operational and strategic excellence in information technology (IT).
"Receiving the CIO 100 award affirms PPG Industries' commitment to
delivering innovative IT solutions to support the strategic initiatives
of our businesses," said Werner Baer, PPG vice president, information
technology. "Our customers are looking to us continually for innovative
products and services, and the PPG IT organization strives to exceed
those expectations with groundbreaking technologies such as this digital
glass visualization application."
PPG's award recognizes technology created by the company's flat glass
business that enables the industry's first digital glass visualization
platform, which is driven by data and incorporates glass properties of
color, light reflectance and transmittance. This Web-based system
enables architects to digitally select and specify glass for commercial
buildings by realistically rendering glass products that can be viewed
at different angles and in various lighting conditions, thereby
providing an accurate depiction of the visual aesthetics of the glass.
The application can be accessed online at http://glasseview.ppg.com/View#.
"For 27 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 and events. "Our 2014 winners are an
outstanding example of the transformative power of IT to drive
everything from revenue growth to competitive advantage."
Executies from the winning companies will be recognized at the CIO 100
Symposium and Awards Ceremony on Aug. 19 in Rancho Palos Verdes,
About the CIO 100
Recipients of this year's CIO 100 Award were selected through a
three-step process. First, companies filled out an online application
form detailing their innovative IT and business initiatives. Next, a
team of external judges (many of them former CIOs) reviewed the
applications in depth, looking for leading-edge IT practices and
measurable results. Finally, CIO editors reviewed the judges'
recommendations and selected the final 100.
Coverage of the 2014 CIO 100 Awards will be available online at CIO.com
on Aug. 1 and in the Aug. 1 issue of CIO magazine.
