San Francisco, CA — July 1, 1999 — Scient (NASDAQ: SCNT), The eBusiness Systems Innovator™ , today announced that its intranet – The Scient Zone - was named by CIO magazine as a 1999 CIO Web Business 50/50 award winner for its online business excellence and as a superior intranet site. Each year CIO magazine recognizes 50 Internet and 50 intranet sites that go beyond customary Web commerce practices to deliver outstanding business value. The third annual CIO award program distinguishes organizations around the world that have taken a distinct approach toward the use of the Internet or intranet in their business.
“The Scient Zone is the knowledge management infrastructure which delivers productivity, quality, and innovation,” noted Doug Kalish, Chief Knowledge Officer at Scient. “The Knowledge Management and IT team at Scient developed these capabilities rapidly to provide our clients and colleagues with rapid, current access to internal and external knowledge while blending sophisticated, proprietary technology with user-friendly, creative design.”
Winners were selected by a panel of CIO magazine editors, writers, art designers and Web development experts. The panel of judges evaluated hundreds of nominated sites for their ability to use innovative Web techniques to deliver greater business value. In particular, the panel focused on finding sites that successfully integrate creative design and high quality technical attributes. The judges measured how well the blend of technology and design contributes to the organization’s overall business objective as well as the site’s ability to meet the needs of the target audience.
