Novell CIO Debra Anderson Honored as 2004 Premier 100 IT Leader by IDG's Computerworld

PROVO, Utah | January 5, 2004

Debra Anderson, Novell's chief information officer, has been recognized by IDG's Computerworld, the "Voice of IT Management," as one of the business world's Premier 100 IT Leaders. The award honors executives who show exemplary technology leadership in resolving pressing business problems. Honorees, including Anderson, were named and profiled in the January 5 issue of Computerworld and will be honored again at Computerworld's Premier 100 IT Leaders Conference, occurring March 5-7, 2004, at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort, Palm Desert, Calif.

Anderson was selected from nearly 600 nominees, who were measured against Computerworld's IT Leadership Index, a set of characteristics that describes executives who guide the effective use of IT in their organizations, and evaluated by the editors and by an external panel of past Premier 100 honorees. Other honorees include leading IT executives from corporations such as J.P. Morgan Chase, Marriott International, American Express, Lockheed Martin, MetLife and the U.S. Air Force.

"Our Premier 100 list honors those who've had a positive impact on their IT groups and their companies during some of the toughest times in years," said Maryfran Johnson, editor in chief of Computerworld. "They lead people and projects to success. They're adept communicators who are 'bilingual' in tech-speak and business talk. But most significantly, they're still willing to take risks in these highly risk-averse times."
