Reed Technology and Information Services Inc. Recognized by CIO Magazine
June 1, 2010 — Horsham, Pa. — For the second consecutive year, IDG's CIO magazine today announced Reed Technology and Information Services Inc. (ReedTech.com), a LexisNexis® business headquartered in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, as a recipient of the 2010 CIO 100 award for its innovative information management solution for the pharmaceutical industry. The 23nd annual award program recognizes organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology (IT).
"This year's CIO 100 awards draw well-deserved attention to companies that are not only innovating with IT, but creating genuine business value as well," said Maryfran Johnson, Editor in Chief of CIO magazine & Events. "These winning companies and their IT organizations are an inspiration to businesses everywhere."
The CIO 100 award recognizes Reed Tech for its design and implementation of an XML publishing composition system for creating print- and web-ready publishing content from Structured Product Labeling (SPL). SPL includes a prescription drug’s “Content of Labeling” that must be submitted to and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in order for a drug to be marketed. Reed Tech’s system is designed to reduce publishing costs for pharma clients while increasing their operating efficiency. To improve customer content management and profitability, Reed Tech employs a highly automated publishing process to deliver FDA-compliant data for published materials.
“Reed Tech is honored to be counted among the 2010 CIO 100 award winners,” said Dave Ballai, CIO & Vice President Operations, Reed Technology. “This award recognizes an innovative approach to servicing the information management needs of a broad range of Pharmaceutical and Life Science customers by our team of dedicated technology and business professionals. Reed Tech’s XML publishing solution for SPL offers high value improvements to support the complex publishing demands of our customers.”
The 2010 CIO 100 awards will be presented at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, on August 24th at the conclusion of the twelfth annual CIO 100 Symposium® and Awards Ceremony.
About the CIO 100
The 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 judges reviewed the applications in depth, looking for unique practices and substantial results. Finally, CIO editors reviewed the judges' recommendations and voted on the final 100. Once the top 100 honorees were selected, several honorees were chosen to receive an additional special award. The recipients of this special award will be revealed at the CIO 100 awards ceremony in August.
Complete coverage of the 2010 CIO 100 awards will be online at www.cio.com on June 1, 2010 and in the August 1st issue of CIO magazine.
