Foundry’s CIO 100 award recognizes enterprise excellence and innovation in IT.

KINGSPORT, Tennessee

Eastman’s innovative digital Core service platform has earned the company a spot on the list of 2023 CIO 100 award winners.

For more than 30 years, the CIO 100 Awards from CIO magazine have recognized innovative organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of strategic and operational excellence in information technology.

“This year’s class of award winners have distinguished themselves with many groundbreaking projects using AI, quantum computing, facial recognition, analytics and more,” said Anne McCrory, group vice president, customer experience and operations, events, at Foundry and the chair of the 2023 CIO awards programs. “Their innovations improve customer experiences, track sustainability and reduce risk, and have novel applications across industries, from pharma and health care to manufacturing, retail, software and more.”

Core is a SaaS patent-pending platform that enables Eastman’s customers in the automotive aftermarket industry to be able to install our paint protection and window film products more accurately and efficiently. For Eastman, Core intelligently solves a highly inefficient and expensive business problem for the team that makes the vehicle patterns. 

“I’m so proud of how our teams are redefining what digital means in our industry,” said Aldo Noseda, Eastman vice president and chief information officer. “Externally, digital services like Core set us apart from our competitors. Internally, they are inspiring teams to think about new ways Eastman can grow in the digital space. Receiving this CIO 100 award is both humbling and rewarding.”

Executives from the winning companies will be recognized at the CIO 100 Symposium & Awards later this year.
