InformationWeek Elite 100 2015

Over the last three years, we have taken bold steps to use technology to better serve faculty, students and staff. We are honored to see these efforts being recognized.

The University of Minnesota has been named one of the nation's most innovative users of business technology by InformationWeek, a leading technology industry publication serving executive leaders at some of the country's largest businesses and government organizations.

The publication named the University to its Elite 100 list at its annual conference Tuesday attended by hundreds of technology leaders and practitioners. Featuring some of the nation's best-known consumer brands, the list recognizes innovation in core IT operations, including technology deployment, budgeting, infrastructure and strategy.

"Over the last three years, we have taken bold steps to use technology to better serve faculty, students and staff," said Scott Studham, vice president and chief information officer for the University. "We are honored to see these efforts being recognized, and we look forward to continuing to perform and innovate in this area."

The University was the only full public university system—and one of just three higher-ed institutions in the country—recognized with this award. It came in at number 74. The full list can be found at www.informationweek.com/elite100.
