Northern Arizona University was honored for improving the processes of its NAU-Extended Campuses Software Development Team, increasing developer output and enabling the institution to keep pace with growing enrollment, as well as meet demand for new and better student services, course management, prospect tracking and staff support.

NAU was recognized for its Task Management Environment, a web application that allows projects to be broken down into smaller parts, and Software Migration Process, which merges and deploys software changes, both deemed as innovative, replicable solutions to higher education challenges.
