Covidien and Intel lead Nominations for IR Magazine Awards - US 2013

-- Covidien and Intel receive eight nominations each

NEW YORK, Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Garnering eight nominations each, Covidien and Intel are the two most-nominated companies for the IR Magazine Awards – US 2013. More impressively, both companies have greatly increased their nomination counts from last year when Covidien was nominated in three award categories and Intel in only two.

Now in their 18th year, the IR Magazine Awards – US 2013 are the industry's most prestigious and coveted awards that honor leading companies and professionals in investor relations (IR). This year, the awards will take place on the evening of March 21, 2013, at a black-tie dinner and ceremony at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. For the full list of nominees, see below or click here.

The second-highest nomination count for the IR Magazine Awards – US 2013 goes to Danaher, with seven. These three companies ‒ Covidien, Danaher and Intel ‒ and Honeywell will vie for the top prize of best overall IR program – large cap ($20 bn and over in market capitalization). This is a rematch of last year's fight for the top spot, which Covidien eventually won.

In the $2 bn to $20 bn mid-cap category, Broadcom, Kansas City Southern, Limited Brands and Wyndham Worldwide are nominated for best overall IR program. Broadcom is the only repeat nominee from 2012; it was the eventual winner last year. In the small-cap category (under $2 bn), the short list for best overall IR program includes Jack in the Box, Old National Bancorp, US Airways Group and ViroPharma.    

Underpinning the IR Magazine Awards – US 2013 is a body of research that identifies the best corporate IR teams and provides a window into the thinking of IR's most important audience: investors. This research is the only one of its kind to go directly to the investment community, via a combination of electronic surveys and one-to-one telephone interviews conducted over the course of five months in 2012, canvassing the opinions of more than 800 investors, analysts and portfolio managers across the US.

The IR Magazine Awards – US 2013 are sponsored by American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Bloomberg, BNY Mellon, Business Wire, Computershare/Georgeson, Innisfree, Ipreo, Issuer Advisory Group, Marketwire, NASDAQ OMX and PR Newswire.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings.

However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
