Pipeline Publishing has announced the winners of its prestigious 2012 Innovation Awards. These awards are considered some of the most credible and objective endorsements of innovation and thought leadership in the communications technology industry.

MarketWatch brought this news to our attention in their article, “Winners Announced for Pipeline’s 2012 Innovation Awards.” Over 70 companies were nominated this year, narrowed down to a select group of less than 20 finalists.

There were ten 2012 Innovation Award winners. Ontology Systems won in the Technical Innovation category, which recognizes those who develop and leverage emerging technologies. Other notable winners were Microsoft for Best Ecosystem (recognizing partnerships, ecosystems, and programs that drive and promote innovation), and Tekelec, who won in the Most Innovative Company category (recognizing companies that embrace innovation throughout their organization).

Congratulations to all the winners.
