“Technology continues to play a pivotal role in transforming how business and society functions. For the past 25 years the Computerworld Honors Program has had the privilege of celebrating innovative IT achievements,” said John Amato, vice president & publisher, Computerworld. “Computerworld is honored to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of the 2013 class of Laureates and to share their work. These projects demonstrate how IT can advance organizations' ability to compete, innovate, communicate and prosper.”
With an estimated 500,000 children reported missing in the U.S. each year, NCMEC looked to CA Technologies for a systematic and integrated approach to provide faster response times and overall improved quality of IT management. CA Technologies worked with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) to consolidate and facilitate the large volume of technological data. The advanced IT solutions provided by CA Technologies have contributed to NCMEC’s recovery rate for missing children growing from 62 percent in 1990 to 97 percent today.
“CA Technologies is honored to be recognized as a 2013 Laureate by IDG’s Computerworld Honors Program,” said Erica Christensen, senior director, Community Affairs, CA Technologies. “Having our partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children showcased on a platform like this demonstrates how, just as in business, the right technology can help nonprofits strengthen their infrastructure and improve effectiveness. We are proud to support the incredibly important work their organization is leading to find missing kids and prevent child exploitation.”
The Computerworld Honors Program awards will be presented at the Gala Evening and Awards Ceremony on June 3, 2013 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
