Recently, PC Week rated the top 100 most innovative government or educational institutions in regard to their use of information technologies ("100 Innovators in Government and Education: Public Sector IT Leaders Turn to the Internet to Deliver New Services and Cut Costs" by Jeff Moad and Stephanie Neil, PC Week Online March 15, 1999).
 
The State University of New York was listed in eleventh place. According to the PC Week article "technologies used to create the scoring model included electronic commerce, intranet, data warehouse and high-speed networking technologies such as asynchronous transfer mode and Gigabit Ethernet".

This achievement reflects positively on work being done from Provost Salins' office particularly Chris Haile's Advanced Learning and Information Services. An example of such work is highlighted in Tom Neiss' article contained in this issue of SUNYergy. Moreover, such a positive rating reveals all the great work being done at computer centers, networking services, media centers and libraries all around the SUNY system.
 
The SUNY OLIS staff congratulates SUNY and CUNY on their near-the-top rankings (and see the SUNY Press Release SUNY Ranked Among the Best in the Nation in Information Technology). Also see the Top 200 Wired College Campuses report for more SUNY technology kudos.
