More than ever before, businesses rely on technological advancements, and this community continues to deliver. For the third year, Biz 417 has partnered with AITP of the Ozarks to spotlight the innovators who are transforming the technology landscape in southwest Missouri. Our independent panel of judges reviews and scores all nominees based on the following criteria: overall accomplishments, the relevance of accomplishments to the technology sector, their scope of impact and involvement in the greater IT industry and community. The winners were announced at an awards ceremony on February 28. These three corporate winners and three individuals wowed the judges. Here are this year’s six Excellence In Technology winners.
