DUBLIN, Ohio, Dec. 16, 1997 - Information Dimensions, Inc., a leading provider of web-enabled document management solutions, has won one of the coveted "Crossroads 98 A-List Awards" for its BASIS Document Management System in the category of Document Management for Intranets, Extranets and the Internet. The fifth annual Crossroads A-List Awards are the only industry awards based on interviews with customers who are actually deploying the products in mission-critical business situations.
"No product testing lab or editorial review is as valuable to an IT executive considering a complex system as the real-world experience of his or her peers," explains Nina Lytton, president of Open Systems Advisors, Inc. (OSA). "That's what the Crossroads A-List Awards do -- they identify products and services with proven track records. This is especially important for lesser known products and services from new companies.
"Products that win a Crossroads A-List Award are newly proven solutions that are ready for deployment during 1998," Lytton adds. All products are measured against OSA's select criteria for enterprise-wide computing, including importance in achieving business results, increasing sales, improving customer service, shortening time to market, and interoperability in a multi-vendor environment consisting of PCs, UNIX and traditional systems.
BASIS addresses large and complex document management problems for organizations that have document repositories that are mission critical to their business. BASIS is a high-end solution that features high performance search and retrieval, security, control and integrity to ensure the availability of document resources to the organization. BASIS, according to industry analyst IDC, is the world's most used document management system with well over 1.1 million users worldwide.
An awards ceremony will be held in conjunction with the fifth annual Crossroads Conference, Crossroads 98, set for March 1-4, 1998 -- the only industry event exclusively for experienced, business-focused information technology executives who are responsible for getting business results with emerging technology.
A complete list of the Crossroads 98 A-List Award recipients and information on the methodology used to select award winners is available on the OSA web site (www.crossroads-osa.com).
