Folio: has recognized UBM's InformationWeek for editorial excellence at its 2015 Eddie & Ozzie Awards. InformationWeek, the leading news and analysis media brand for business technology decision-makers, won the following Eddie awards:
- B-to-B – Series of Articles | "Father Time" – Technology / Telecom [Eddies]
- B-to-B – Online Community | IT Life, September 2015 – [Eddies Digital]
Charles Babcock, Cloud Editor at Large for InformationWeek, authored the "Father Time" pieces that landed InformationWeek its Series of Articles award. To develop this series, Babcock identified an urgent, yet under-reported topic concerning the future of the Network Time Protocol, the standard by which all Internet time codes are managed.
"What's most notable about this series is that author Charles Babcock captured the human story behind the technology, in addition to providing a clear explanation of a complex technology topic," said InformationWeek Editorial Director Susan Nunziata.
Babcock focused his work on Harlan Stenn, the developer who has devoted decades acting as the "keeper" of the Network Time Protocol. "Programmer Harlan Stenn, is our 'Father Time' figure in the series on the NTP," said Babcock, "he built up a high degree of credibility with me during a series of interviews as someone who was devoted to the proper development of the protocol."
The series proved highly engaging for InformationWeek's audience of IT professionals, resulting in a combined total of 95,000 page views and 45 community comments.
In addition to conducting thought-provoking article series, InformationWeek analyzes reader and page view trends to discover untapped opportunities to build new communities, like IT Life. Since its launch, the IT Life community has been the second most popular destination on the InformationWeek website; averaging 400,000 page views and 640 community comments per month in 2015.
