"Our 2014 winners are an outstanding example of the transformative power of IT to drive everything from revenue growth to competitive advantage."
Tarmin received the recognition for its Data Defined Storage technology. This technology provides massive scalability, comprehensive data management, end-to-end data protection and security, and a distributed metadata repository that enables enterprise search and discovery, as well as data-in-place analytics to help organizations realize value from unstructured data.
“We are thrilled to be honored as a CIO 100 recipient,” said Shahbaz Ali, president and CEO of Tarmin. “In a competitive market, its imperative for Tarmin to provide its customers with the latest technology that delivers cost savings and operational agility. Our innovative Data Defined Storage solution creates genuine business value by transforming large unstructured datasets into knowledge that translates into actionable insights, giving organizations the substantial competitive advantage they need to succeed.”
Tarmin GridBank Data Management Platform, the premier Data Defined Storage solution, provides a unified approach for consistent data management, storage, retention, security, search and analytics for unstructured datasets, and delivers high availability and secure access to data, whenever and wherever it is needed. It also offers organizations a transparent and non-disruptive way to transition traditional storage infrastructures into application-aware private, public or hybrid scale-out cloud storage.
Executives from the winning companies will be recognized at the CIO 100 Symposium & Awards Ceremony, to be held Tuesday evening, August 19, 2014 at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
The recipients of this year's CIO 100 award were selected through a three-step process. First, companies filled out an online application form detailing their innovative IT and business initiatives. Next, a team of judges reviewed the applications in depth, looking for unique practices and substantial results. Finally, CIO editors reviewed the judges' recommendations and voted on the final 100.
