BP wins 2010 CIO 100 Award for its virtual collaboration initiatives

Our customers' creativity and achievements never cease to impress me, and the media. CIO gave BP its 2010 CIO 100 Award for the company's innovative work in using 3-D virtual environments for collaboration. Congratulations to the BP team!

BP is using virtual collaboration technology to hold conferences and meetings for employees located around the world. We documented one of those stories back in February in a case study. BP used ProtoSphere to hold an annual conference for its graduates.

The company has since used virtual collaboration technology for leadership meetings, training programs, employee induction programs, exhibitions, and even java breaks.

The CIO 100 Awards recognize 100 companies that demonstrate excellence and achievement in IT. They're among the most competitive technology awards given by the media. This year's winners were chosen based on their uncommon, innovative ways for creating new business value through IT. CIO's judges also emphasized projects that helped companies overcome economic challenges.

You can hit CIO's website for the complete list of winners and their projects. It's nothing short of impressive, and it's exciting to see what's percolating around the tech industry. Congrats again to the BP team!
