PHOENIX -- April 1, 2004 -- Today, Storage Networking World (SNW) announced the winners of its "Best Practices in Storage" Awards Program for spring 2004. Winners will receive a memento commemorating their award during a special ceremony held at SNW, which takes place April 5-8, 2004, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix, Ariz.
The SNW is an educational conference co-owned by Computerworld

Twice a year, as part of the conference, the "Best Practices in Storage" Awards Program honors end-user case studies that demonstrate exemplary deployment of storage technology.
Awards are conferred in five individual program categories: Systems Implementation; Storage Reliability and Data Recovery; Innovation and Promise; Industry Regulation Compliance and Corporate Governance; and Data Lifecycle Management. This spring's winners included organizations such as the American Red Cross, Barclays Bank PLC, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Nationwide Insurance and the Public Broadcasting Service.
"Storage is playing a vital role as the technology sector slowly but surely rebounds, because of its ability to improve business practices," said Leo Leger, vice president of Strategic Initiatives for Computerworld
. "Our 'Best Practices in Storage' Award Program demonstrates how omnipresent storage networking technology has become when Barclays Bank -- a global financial services leader -- shares the spotlight with Make-A-Wish Foundation, one of America's most beloved charities."
