My company :-) received an award last night.
ComputerWorld Heroes press release
"Judged the best IT application in the world"... God, I'm so happy I could cry.
Congratulations to the Network for Good team, too, whoever you are.
The award goes to the software part of the Turkish Ministry of Finance Tax Office Automation Project (Vergi Dairesi Otomasyonu Projesi - VEDOP in Turkish) that we developed as a subcontractor for Fujitsu-Siemens, the main contractor who supplied the hardware. The project had a Y2K stage and downsized two mainframes, replacing them with Unix databases. The project utilizes a multitude of CORBA, Java, Unix and Windows technologies. More on the project...
We are an ISO certified company that practices SPICE.
The project was previously awarded the first place in "Best e-government Application, Government-to-Citizen Category" in CeBit Eurasia 2002.
