St. Louis IT systems integrator ranked 86th on top 500 list of U.S. tech innovators

IT systems integrator World Wide Technology ranked 86th on 2012 InformationWeek 500 list.

World Wide Technology (WWT - St. Louis), among the foremost IT systems integrators for the commercial, government and telecom sectors, announced that it has been ranked 86th on this year’s InformationWeek 500, a list of the top technology innovators in the U.S.

WWT broke through the list's top 100 this year after appearing in the Information 500 rankings for the first time in 2011. This year, the IT systems integrator was recognized for developing a proprietary software and process called CPMigrator, which reduces the cost and burden association with multiple desktop migrations, as well for the build-out of its state-of-the-art Advanced Technology Center (ATC) at the company’s St. Louis headquarters.

WWT developed CPMigrator to help enterprises and government agencies of all sizes lower costs, increase end user satisfaction and improve visibility and control during Windows 7 migrations. According to the company, the CPMigrator platform eliminates manual errors and data loss while seamlessly transferring data and application settings from one PC to another in one hour versus four hours for a manual migration, which WWT estimates can translate to a 90 percent cost reduction.

“World Wide is honored to be recognized by InformationWeek for these powerful initiatives,” said Bob Olwig, vice president of business strategy with WWT. “Both CPMigrator and the ATC were designed and built from the ground up by WWT with the express purpose of helping our clients lower costs, reduce risk and solve their most pressing IT challenges.”

The annual list was revealed last month at a gala awards ceremony at the exclusive InformationWeek 500 Conference, which took place at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, Calif. “The InformationWeek 500 has recognized the most innovative users of business technology for 24 years,” notes InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston. “What the editors looked for are unconventional approaches -- new technologies, new models, new ways of grabbing business opportunities and solving complex business problems with IT.”
