Knosys competed with 10 other international firms for the award, which was sponsored by Microsoft. Winners and finalists were selected by a panel of judges, who scored entries based on their use of Microsoft Windows NT Server operating systems and BackOffice products to provide tangible benefits for knowledge management and business intelligence/data warehousing. "We feel this award demonstrates the significant value and innovation being delivered by Knosys on the Microsoft platform," says Andrew Hoover, Microsoft's Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing group industry manager.
