NuStar Energy today announced that it ranked No. 1 in the Energy and Utilities industry — and No. 58 overall — on this year’s InformationWeek 500 list, which highlights the top technology innovators in the U.S. The annual list was recently announced at a gala awards ceremony at the exclusive InformationWeek 500 Conference, which took place at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, CA.
“To be recognized by InformationWeek as a leader in information technology is a wonderful validation of our employees, processes and policies,” said Manish Kapoor, NuStar’s Senior Vice President of Information Systems. “It reinforces our view that information technology can provide a competitive advantage in an industry where there is very little product differentiation. I’d especially like to thank and congratulate our employees without whose effort we would not have achieved a spot on this prestigious list.”
“The InformationWeek 500 has recognized the most innovative users of business technology for 24 years, and this year’s innovators were particularly impressive,” said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston. “What the editors looked for are unconventional approaches¬-new technologies, new models, new ways of grabbing business opportunities and solving complex business problems with IT.”
InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation’s most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments, and administrative practices of America’s best-known companies. Past overall winners include PACCAR Inc., The Vanguard Group, CME Group, National Semiconductor, Con-Way, and Principal Financial Group. The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
