Looking for the best mobile wireless case
Computerworld, with support from HP, is seeking IT user-organization case study submissions for consideration and recognition in Computerworld's "Best Practices in Mobile & Wireless Awards Program."

Of fifty finalists two winners and one Honorable Mention will be recognized in each of the following Categories:

  • Systems Implementation
    Recognizes the successful design, implementation and management of an interoperable mobile and/or wireless architecture. Demonstrates the ability to source/implement from multiple vendors and to maintain a heterogeneous environment.

  • Systems Reliability
    Acknowledges implementation strategies and programs to insure highly available information and data access. Examples of "business continuance" initiatives (back-up plans, staging, performance testing/projections, etc.) will be key considerations.

  • Information Security
    A case study on the successful implementation of secure mobile and/or wireless computing/communicating and recovery from an actual, significant network or systems disruption. Summary analysis of restart/recovery factors (back-up deployment, time to restart and restore, information/data loss, etc.) are essential.

  • Financial Payback
    Achievements in measurable return on investment, return on assets and return on resources through the use of mobile and/or wireless systems will be evaluated. Total cost of ownership (TCO) benefits and other accomplishments should be presented.

  • Innovation and Promise
    Successful "pioneering" of leading/bleeding-edge mobile and wireless technology will be recognized in this category. The ability to overcome early adoption obstacles and to resolve problems ("in-house" or via unique vendor/integrator/other user partnerships, etc.,) will be assessed. Solutions with near-term promise or "upside" in any of the above categories may be presented. All "miscellaneous other" type cases should be in this category.

    Entries and nominations close 18 Aug 2003 9pm (EST).
