Mercer has been named an honoree of a 2020 FutureEdge 50 Award from IDG’s CIO. This prestigious honor is awarded to organizations pushing the edge with new technologies to advance their business for the future. Mercer will accept its award at the AGENDA20 Conference held March 23 – 25 at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
“We are honored to be recognized with the FutureEdge50 award for the second year in a row,” said Gail Evans, Mercer’s Global Chief Digital Officer. “Our winning entry, Mercer Intellify, enables our clients to access and analyze data and leverage predictive analytics (through their Mercer consultant) to make smarter data-driven decisions that optimize their bottom-line. Innovative digital solutions like Intellify demonstrate Mercer’s commitment to solving top-of-mind client issues and transforming the way organizations work.”
Mercer won a 2019 FutureEdge 50 Award for its Data Connector, which simplifies the process of submitting data and matching jobs. The link to last year’s announcement can be found here.
“The organizations in the FutureEdge 50 are doing exciting things that would have been unimaginable just a few years ago. For example, there’s a project using blockchain and quantum computing to establish trust; an indoor navigation system; and many uses of AI/ML for insights and efficiency,” said Anne McCrory, group vice president, customer experience and operations, events, and the FutureEdge and AGENDA20 conference chair. “We are honored to showcase these innovations and many others as we enter into a new era of sophistication with cloud, devices and environments powering the technology-driven business.”
