Governor’s Office of Information Technology Wins National Award

DENVER, Colo.—The Governor’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) has been chosen as an honoree for the CIO 100 Awards presented by IDG’s CIO magazine. OIT’s Data Insights Platform was recognized as for its innovation and use of IT to create business value.

Chief Information Officer Suma Nallapati says, “I am so pleased that the State of Colorado and OIT are at the forefront of an effort that we believe will be revolutionary for government services.” The Data Insights Platform is geared toward helping Colorado state agencies use the data they collect to make sound business decisions and support smart policy that benefits all Coloradans. OIT recognized that state agencies were collecting huge amounts of data but lacked a fast and efficient way to analyze it. The Data Insights Platform is a framework that encompasses data and information governance, data integration and identity resolution across contributing entities using big data analytics.

Anderson says, “It is really heartening to see the Data Insights Platform earn national recognition. The state of Colorado understands how important it is as a tool to help us be more effective and efficient, and it’s great to see that others are taking notice as well.”

This was the 27th year for the CIO 100 Awards which honors 100 companies that demonstrate excellence and achievement in innovation and value. This is the third year in a row that OIT has been honored at the CIO 100 Awards. OIT will be recognized at the CIO 100 Symposium and Awards Ceremony on August 19th.
