For the third consecutive year, HD Supply, Atlanta, was awarded a top 200 ranking on the 2011 InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation's most innovative users of business technology. HD Supply was recognized for its comprehensive IT Operations Management Suite. InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of America's best-known companies. The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders. The HD Supply information technology team avoided more than $1.2 million in license purchases and eliminated more than $200,000 in annual maintenance cost by developing a comprehensive management suite in-house.
