Todd Davis, chief information officer, Choice Hotels International

"Getting out of the traditional PC provisioning and support business with the help of VMware makes us more efficient, reduces our Total Cost of Ownership for a typical PC, and allows us more time to focus on our organization's strategic initiatives. This honor recognizes the initiative and execution our team has taken to delivering a better online experience as well as service to our associates and clients." David Robinson, chief information officer, Lockton Companies

"At Metro Health Hospital, our vision for virtual desktops was to increase accessibility of the employees' active virtual desktop in 10 seconds or less. Using VMware Horizon View, we were able not only to achieve that, but also to reduce support calls and increase our employee satisfaction scores. This award acknowledges the accomplishment of our IT team in partnership with VMware using technology to better our employee experience." Aivars Apsite, Technology Strategist, Metro Health Hospital
