Technology Managers Forum has announced the winners of its 15th annual Best Practice Awards program.

The term Best Practices refers to processes proved to be the most effective means of implementing a project, and which are significant in that they are innovative and can be replicated. The Best Practice Awards program is particularly distinguished by the caliber of its judging panel, which features practicing Fortune 1000 technology managers.

All winners were chosen from nominations from organizations in the United States, Europe and Asia. As Technology Managers Forum’s Best Practice Awards program moves into its 16th year, it upholds its significant contribution to the establishment of benchmark best practices for IT management in large enterprises.
