For the first time, Capgemini has jumped into the top half of the InformationWeek 500 list.

Capgemini honoured by InformationWeek and CRM Magazine

Capgemini US LLC has been named in the InformationWeek 500, a list that recognizes achievements of corporate America's largest and most innovative users of information technology.

For the past 19 years, InformationWeek has identified and honoured the most innovative users of information technology with its annual listing. The list is unique among corporate rankings because it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.

Over the last year, Capgemini has developed a number of innovative solutions helping to define the rules of the game in the professional services industry. These solutions include:

-- Digital Media Delivery Service - DMD Service enables retailers, telecom, cable, broadband and entertainment companies with the approval of content rights holders, to sell and distribute digital content to their customers. The new service enables IP-based commercial retailing of music videos, TV shows and blockbuster movies. Capgemini is teaming with major technology providers including HP to bring this turn-key solution to specific markets.

-- Smart Meter - Capgemini is collaborating with utility industry leaders across North America in Canada and California on to deliver advanced meter reading to end-users. In addition, Capgemini is a founding member of the Smart Energy Alliance along with Cisco, GE Energy, HP, Intel and Oracle.

-- RAIN Service Oriented Enterprise Roadmap - The "RApid INovation" series of environments around the globe were launched to usher in the next era of service-orientation and end business as usual. The RAIN environments were developed in collaboration with Intel to show transformation in action in physical environments including Cupertino, CA and Utrecht, Netherlands. The physical environments are complimented by a virtual environment that allows organizations to model business processes with plug-and-play applications and a modular infrastructure.

During the same week, CRM Magazine gave Capgemini a "Market Leader" award for providing clients with leading practices in the function of Customer Relationship Management (CRM). The magazine lauded the consistency of Capgemini's ratings across multiple criteria. The launch of a dedicated Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) unit in North America and the acquisition of Kanbay were seen as moves that bolstered the CRM capabilities of Capgemini.
