Press Release

Data Center Construction Project Recognized as
Laureate by the Computerworld Honors Program
The IDG Computerworld Honors Program has recognized REJIS’ data center construction project as a Laureate. Founded by International Data Group (IDG) in 1988, the Computerworld Honors Program is governed by the not-for-profit Computerworld Information Technology Awards Foundation. In its 20th year, Computerworld Honors is the longest running global program to honor individuals and organizations that use information technology to benefit society.
 
Each year, the Honors Program Chairmen’s Committee, a group of 100 Chairmen/CEOs of global technology companies, nominates individuals and organizations around the world whose visionary application of information technology promotes positive social and economic progress. An independent board of CIO-level judges evaluates nominations and select Laureates, Finalists and award recipients, in 10 industry-related categories, to be honored at the Laureate Medal Ceremony.

The new data center replaced an obsolete facility that was part of REJIS’ general office.  The new center, built in space previously occupied by a parking lot has doubled the space previously allocated for the data center. It includes features such as enhanced security, designed and constructed to withstand natural and man-made catastrophic events and improvements supporting daily operations, such as better loading dock and storage areas, cable management system, 24” raised floors and an emergency generator for power with redundant power and data inputs to computing equipment.
 
An in-house project team was instrumental in monitoring construction activities, building teamwork and creating a move-in plan that resulted in a service interruption of only 118 minutes, a critical issue, since nearly all law enforcement agencies depend on REJIS availability to carry out routine activities.
 
The result was a project completed on time, and well under budget that positions REJIS to continue, and expand providing mission critical IT services to criminal justice and general government entities.
