CSIA, Colorado’s Technology Association, today announced the winners of the 2011 technology Apex Awards. Winners and finalists were awarded and announced at last night’s program.

"The technology industry is the engine behind all other industries, yet many times, these companies and professionals go without recognition. That’s why we are so proud of our Apex Awards. For 11 years, we have been shining the light on these successful companies and individuals who influence our communities and economy in a positive way,” said Su Hawk, President, CSIA. "Congratulations to all these winners and finalist for their successes.”

The 2011 Company Winners are:

• Technology Company of the Year – Rivet Software. Rivet Software identified and addressed a market need long before the solution was mandated. Well-poised, they then seized the opportunity in 2010. As a result, they have experienced phenomenal growth, 1140% in just 12 months. Rivet Software is pioneering the future of global financial communications; they focus on providing finance, accounting, and other business users with control over the collection, analysis and dissemination of business and financial information. Finalists: IP5280 Communications and Tendril.

• Technology Product of the Year – Power Tagging. Power Tagging is taking a leading edge approach to managing the smart grid.

They believe the Smart Grid can be achieved by delivering a strong rate of return for utilities, energy savings for consumers and flexibility for the future. Finalists: Red Earth Software and Rivet Software.

• Technology Services of the Year – IP5280 Communications. IP5280 Communications delivers a portfolio of IP capabilities for businesses all over the world. Their clients benefit from their fully monitored and supported Voice Operations Center located here in Denver, Colorado. In such, their business model quickly establishes a ROI for their clients and provides ongoing efficiencies. Finalists: Advanced Assembly and Integrate.

• Rookie of the Year – Orbotix. Orbotix works with consumer electronics companies and developers to bring phone controlled open devices to market. Their technology brings new gaming technology to the forefront, yet also demonstrates the ability to be used in mobile applications and other mobile uses. This company stood out as one that should be taken seriously when looking at companies that will last and grow right here in Colorado. Finalists: Radish Systems and UsingMiles.

• IT Project of the Year – PEI. PEI’s IT project began with the goal of providing a virtual sales force with an enhanced online environment to drive community and communications for their client. Their client had a largely remote workforce, and they wanted to up level their employee engagement. PEI seamlessly integrated instant messaging, web conferencing, and video conferencing to take their client even closer to presenting coworkers with a single interface for information. Finalists: Amadeus Consulting and SLI Global.

The 2011 Individual Winners are:

• Bob Newman Lifetime Achievement – John Oechsle, Executive Vice President, Product and Strategy, DigitalGlobe. John has not only contributed to the leadership and strength of Colorado’s technology industry, but has worked throughout the world to lead and coach hundreds of technology professionals. He has worked with international companies as well as entrepreneurs, and determined ways to always connect people to a higher vision. With a background that includes positions across the world at IHS, Johnson & Johnson, LandAmerica and Kellogg, as well as an education that includes Stanford, Dartmouth and Rutgers, his lifetime has been dedicated to leading technology and business initiatives, and Colorado has certainly benefitted greatly from his involvement. For CSIA, he helped create DEMOgala, and was responsible for bringing in Meg Whitman as our first national speaker; he served as Board chair, has served as advisor to dozens of companies and individuals, and has continued to be instrumental in helping Colorado’s national technology reputation.

She has increased student achievement by nearly 10%, and this data led to a $250,000 grant from Impact on Education for a collaboration of teachers for Clickers for BVSD classrooms.
