    InformationWeek 500

    List of Top Technology Innovators Across America
    "B the Difference" employee-driven program ranks Blackbaud at number 209 on the list

    Charleston, S.C. (September 15, 2010) – Blackbaud, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLKB), the leading global provider of software and services for nonprofits, today announced that it made this year's InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation's most innovative users of business technology. Blackbaud debuted on the list this year at number 209. The 2010 list was revealed last night at a gala awards ceremony at the exclusive InformationWeek 500 Conference taking place at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, Dana Point, CA.

    "We are honored to be recognized among the leading technology innovators in the United States as part of the 2010 InformationWeek 500," said Todd Lant, vice president of corporate IT. "The entire employee base at Blackbaud took our corporate values to heart by participating in a company-wide project called 'B the Difference', and we are pleased to be recognized for this innovative program. Blackbaud's ability to improve customer service, implement new technologies and maintain momentum on existing strategic IT initiatives while consolidating significant operations illustrates the success."

    "B the Difference", Blackbaud's employee-driven program, focused on improving customer satisfaction and reducing cost. The program led to numerous initiatives focused on strengthening the business. Most notably, on the IT front, multiple subsidiary operations were integrated. The scope of this effort included consolidation of major data centers and infrastructure, centralization of ERP and CRM applications and business processes and reorganization of IT operations to more adequately reflect the needs of external and internal customers.

    "For 22 years, the InformationWeek 500 has honored the most innovative users of business technology," said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston. "As we start to emerge from the worst recession in decades, the IT focus is now on driving growth—new sources of revenue, new relationships with customers, even new business models. This year's ranking placed special emphasis on those companies and business technology executives leading that charge."

    InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of America's best-known companies. Top winners have included:  CME Group, Conway, National Semiconductor, Kimberly-Clark, Hilton Hotels and Unum. The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
