Dollar General announced that it ranked No-98 on this year’s InformationWeek magazine’s top 500 information technology innovators in the U.S. This is Dollar General’s first time to be included in the rankings. 
 
Dollar General earned its top 100 ranking for implementing successful initiatives to better leverage technology to improve business processes, enhance access to data across the enterprise and drive business growth. 
 
Specifically, the Dollar General IT team implemented systems to strengthen information sharing and collaboration with vendors, improve inventory management and enhance scheduling and efficiencies in its store operations.
 
“I’m very proud of our entire IT team for their work and dedication resulting in this top 100 ranking in the InformationWeek 500,” said Ryan Boone, senior vice president and chief information officer for Dollar General.
 
He adds, “Our team is very dedicated to working with our business leaders to utilize digital technology to solve problems, improve our processes and seize opportunities to better serve our customers.”
 
InformationWeek magazine identifies and honors the nation’s most innovative users of information technology with its annual Top 500 listing and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of some of the best-known organizations in the country.
 
Unique among corporate rankings, the InformationWeek 500 spotlights the power of innovation in information technology.
 
“The theme of this year’s InformationWeek 500 is digital business. It’s a movement, rooted in data analytics, mobile computing, social networking and other customer focused technologies that are turning companies and industries on their ear,” said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston.
 
“Every enterprise is now a digital business — or needs to become one fast. The companies in our ranking are leading the way.”
