The Constellation SuperNova Awards are the first and only awards to celebrate the leaders and teams who have overcome the odds to successfully apply emerging and disruptive technologies for their organizations. We at Constellation know advancing the adoption of disruptive technology is not easy. Disruptive technology adoption often faces resistance from supporters of the status quo, myopia, and financial constraint. We believe actors fighting these forces to champion disruptive technology within their organizations help, not only their organizations, but society as a whole to realize the potential of new and emerging technologies. This annual search for innovators includes an all star judging panel, substantial prizes, invite-only admission and speaking opportunities at Constellation's premier innovation summit - Connected Enterprise.
The Constellation SuperNova Awards will recognize nine individuals who demonstrate true leadership in digital business through their application of new and emerging technologies. The era of digital disruption is upon us. If you follow my work, you'll notice I am a broken record about this statistic: since the year 2000, 52 percent of the Fortune 500 has dropped off the list. Replaced, beaten, and bankrupted by the advancing forces of digital disruption. Digital technology has created a new business environment.
We are pleased to announce the finalists for the eighth annual SuperNova Awards.
