About Computerworld's Data+ Editor's Choice Awards
The Computerworld Data+ Editors' Choice awards program was launched in 2013 by IDG's Computerworld editorial team to recognize organizations that are mining big data to analyze and predict business trends and monetize this information. Organizations were asked to complete questionnaires detailing their big data projects, which were then reviewed by the Computerworld editorial team. From those questionnaires, honorees were selected for their ability to achieve business benefits through big data, and demonstrate real-world results and best practices.
