Computerworld 2012 Selects LMMS in this Year’s Top Five
The International Data Group’s Computerworld Honors Program, honoring visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change, has selected 200 Laureates for 2012 and LMMS was one of them, after being nominated by Sybase and its new parent company SAP. The program was especially competitive this year, as more than 500 IT initiatives were nominated for their innovation and benefit to society. There were ten award categories in 2012, and LMMS became one of the five Finalists in the Human Services category. The organizations and individuals associated with these projects were commemorated during the Annual Laureates Medal Ceremony & Gala Awards Evening on June 4, 2012 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C. and honorees were presented with a medallion inscribed with the Program’s mission, “A Search for New Heroes.”
At the Gala Evening, additional honors were given to 50 finalists in the 21st Century Achievement Award — five Laureates from each of the ten categories — each with a Case Study selected by Program Judges to represent outstanding innovation within the information technology field. Case studies are formally inducted into the program’s International Archives. That field was narrowed further with the presentation of the 21st Century Achievement Awards. These awards were given to only one Finalist in each category, singled out for special recognition by the Program Judges to be the very best among their peers. It is a special honor for LMMS to have been recognized as one of the top 50 Finalists by the 2012 Computerworld honors program.
World Vision was represented at the event by Otto Farkas who received the medal of honor on behalf of the LMMS team.For more information, please visit the Computerworld Honors Program website.
