OIM, Data Warehouse recognized at Computerworld awards
The DHS Office of Information Management (OIM) was honored on June 4 at the Computerworld Honors Award night for their design and implementation of the DHS Data Warehouse.
Established in 1988, The Computerworld Honors Program bestows the title of Laureate on “individuals, organizations and institutions around the world, whose visionary applications of information technology promote positive social, economic and educational change.”
Nominations for Laureate designation come from the Computerworld Honors Chairmen's Committee, a group of 100 Chairpersons/CEOs of the world's foremost information technology companies. Deloitte Consultants nominated OIM for this noteworthy distinction.
The programs nominated are recognized as demonstrating extraordinary use of information technology in one of 10 distinct categories of industry-related endeavor. OIM was nominated in the category of Government & Non-Profit Organizations.
Once selected, it was up to Lisa Caldwell, Administrator OIM Bureau of Evaluation and Research, and Kara Wilson, OIM Data Warehouse Manager, to write the required case study for submission to the Computerworld Honors Program Global Archives.
The case study includes a detailed description of the project, its benefits to society, the role played by information technology in furthering the project, and the ways in which this use of information technology is original or innovative.
