Jim Pappas, Director, Technology Initiatives, thanks the IT pros who chose Intel's DIMMs based on 3D XPoint™ technology, as 2016’s Most Innovative New Enterprise-Class NVM Product.
Global IT professionals responded to the independent, non-sponsored, annual IT Brand Pulse survey and were asked to select 2016 Innovation Leaders in thirteen product categories. IT Pros also voted on two special achievement awards in NVM and NVMe.
“Bigger memory and faster storage will benefit many new devices and also bring tremendous value to the cloud as businesses need to efficiently analyze growing amounts of data. Future products based on 3D XPoint™ technology will revolutionize any device, application or service that benefit from fast access to large sets of data,” said Donald D. Parker, vice president and general manager of Intel’s data center application engineering.

“The IT Brand Pulse leader awards reflect the judgment of major customers and key IT personnel at important data centers. They are the only awards based on the experience of those who actually buy and use the products,” said Dr. Lance Leventhal, FMS program chairperson. “Regular surveys assure that the responses are recent and up-to-date. Receiving an IT Brand Pulse award shows that a company is doing the job where it really counts – in the field!”
IT Brand Leader Surveys
IT Brand Pulse awards are the symbols for brand leadership. Winners are voted by global IT pros in surveys that are independent, non-sponsored research. The surveys are designed to measure the pulse of brand leadership in specific product categories. Within each product category, respondents choose the overall market leader, as well as the leader in price, performance, reliability, service and support, and innovation. Respondents are provided with a category description at the start of each product section, a randomized choice of vendor answers, and the ability to write-in a vendor, if not listed.
