This week 11 companies were rewarded for their innovative use of technology. From travel companies to solicitors, UK companies are demonstrating how best to exploit Web-based technologies.

Now in their second year, the Computer Weekly E-Business Excellence Awards reflect the changing landscape of e-business. Gone is last year's hype and hyperbole - 2001 has been about gaining competitive advantage through the Web. And this has taken the form of realistic business plans, affordable investment and delivering a return on investment.

Our award winners have shown how IT can benefit the business. They are an example to all IT managers - innovation need not be expensive and business goals need not be unrealistic. The awards have revealed the real issues of e-business - implementation, scalability and security.

As one of the judges commented, "Overall the standard of the nominated entries was very high. Particularly in the quality of execution of the e-business implementations. Issues like scalability, fault tolerance and security were recurring themes throughout the judging process."

Our winners reflect best practice within the industry. At a time when e-business is maturing after a period of boom and bust, such good news stories are gold dust for organisations preparing to dip their toes into e-waters.
