Boston, MA, Feb. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IDG’s InfoWorld – the technology media brand committed to serving as the leading voice in emerging enterprise technology – announces the 2021 Technology of the Year Award winners. As technology is continuously relied upon to not only grow the business, but to simply maintain business processes, these winners are the most superior products in the areas of software development, devops, cloud computing, data analytics, and machine learning this year. Selected by InfoWorld editors and reviewers, these products and solutions prove to be the smartest, most nimble, and groundbreaking technologies today.
The year 2020 brought many challenges to businesses as they suddenly shifted to remote work and had to find alternate ways to communicate with clients. Technology was relied upon heavily to “keep the lights on” and IT teams were tasked with implementing company-wide collaboration tools even as they accelerated their adoption of cloud computing, process automation, and data analytics technologies. The 23 winners of InfoWorld’s 2021 Technology of the Year Awards are the products that allowed IT professionals to streamline software development, deploy workloads to the cloud, tap into company-wide data for faster and smarter decisions, or leverage machine learning for greater automation or deeper business insights. This year also expands beyond InfoWorld’s traditional Technology of the Year categories to include exceptional tools for working remotely.
“If we ever needed proof that digital transformation was truly a matter of business survival, the past year has provided it,” said Doug Dineley, executive editor of InfoWorld. “InfoWorld’s 2021 Technology of the Year Award winners represent the cutting-edge innovations in software development, cloud computing, analytics, and AI that are ushering in a new normal of faster, leaner, more agile, and more data-driven business operations.”
