Cummins Inc. announced that it was selected for inclusion on this year’s InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation’s most innovative users of business technology.
“Cummins was founded on innovation and it remains one of our core values today,” says Bruce Carver, Cummins vice president and chief information officer. “Globally, our 45,000 employees working together generate the ingenuity necessary to make us better, fast, first. We are honored to be recognized by InformationWeek as one of the top 500 technology innovators.”
Cummins says its Order Management System (OMS) was one innovation that played a key role in its development. Cummins Emission Solutions (CES) implemented the OMS in 2011, allowing for rapid expansion of the CES business, a key factor in the growth of the entire enterprise, according to the company. This impact of the OMS was a primary reason that Cummins received the InformationWeek award.
“The InformationWeek 500 has recognized the most innovative users of business technology for 24 years, and this year’s innovations were particularly impressive,” says 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.
