Prestigious US Nomination For Compudigm

New Zealand software company, Compudigm International Ltd, has been nominated for a prestigious US Computerworld Smithsonian Award and will receive a Laureate in recognition of this, in San Francisco on April 8.

The Computerworld Smithsonian is an acclaimed award that acknowledges technical evolution and advancements. Compudigm has been nominated for the 2001 Honours for the spectacular success of their Telstra Sydney Olympics project.

The basis of the nomination is Compudigm’s data visualisation technology, seePOWER™, which enabled Telstra Mobile to monitor and manage (in near real time) its mobile network coverage during the Sydney Olympics.

Anthony Goonan, New South Wales Regional Manager for Telstra says the visual maps produced by seePOWER let network managers quickly make decisions on network resource allocation. “Despite demand averaging around 720,000 minutes of telephone conversations daily, Telstra handled all Olympic demands without incident.”

The annual awards, established in 1988, identify the people and organisations that are leading the information technology revolution with solutions that change the world and are called “A Search for New Heroes”. Compudigm will receive their laureate in San Francisco on 8 April 2001 and overall winners will be announced in June 2001.

The awards are a 12 year old partnership between the Smithsonian Institution’s National American History Museum, Computerworld and the technology industry world-wide. Submissions are preserved as part of the permanent research collection at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC.

Compudigm has been nominated by US company, Sybase, whose data warehouse technology powers the solution, seePOWER. seePOWER is winning contracts with casinos and gaming operators in Australia and throughout the USA, as well as being used as a business intelligence tool for telecommunications and retail industries.

This award came on the heels of Compudigm’s outright win of an international competition, The Data Warehouse Institute Pioneering Products Shootout 2001, which was also for its leading edge data visualization software.
