JLL Secures Spot on InformationWeek Elite 100 for Fifth Consecutive Year

Launching CRE’s first scalable data and insights platform lands JLL on prestigious list

CHICAGO, May 4, 2016 – JLL (NYSE: JLL) has once again been named to the InformationWeek Elite 100, a list of the top business technology innovators in the United States for 2016. The firm is included in the publication’s annual ranking for the fifth consecutive year, this time being honored for the launch of RED, the industry’s first scalable data and insights platform.

“RED enables companies to view their real estate portfolios in dynamic, visually-engaging dashboards that support data-driven decision making. As a result, they can make smarter, faster business decisions that achieve cost savings, improved workplace productivity and a more positive workplace experience,” said Edward Wagoner, JLL’s Global Chief Information Officer, Corporate Solutions. “We equip clients with real-time insights so they can be agile and respond rapidly to business challenges and market opportunities.”

The Elite 100 is unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of business technology innovation. InformationWeek selected JLL for its innovation and ability to deliver solutions that allow its employees and clients to maximize the value of their real estate portfolios. The RED platform brings together master data governance, knowledge management, business intelligence and advanced analytics, combined with cutting-edge technologies and JLL’s real estate and data and analytics expertise, to dramatically improve the quality and speed of clients’ real estate decision-making.

“As business success becomes even more dependent on the ability to innovate in information technology, being represented on the InformationWeek Elite 100 list is one of the biggest honors a company can achieve,” said Susan Nunziata, editorial director of InformationWeek. “It’s a validation of efforts by the business to make IT a game changer.”

More than half of CRE executives view a lack of data and analytics tools as a top constraint on their performance, according to JLL’s 2015 Global Corporate Real Estate Trends survey. By addressing this industry challenge with an open architecture format, RED enables client users to derive insights based on multiple and diverse sources, including their own legacy systems, without making major new technology investments. Integrating smart building sensors along with workforce, traffic pattern and weather databases into the RED data set offers a deeper context for real estate decision making. RED also incorporates mobile technologies so executives can access real-time data and insights, as well as JLL’s award-winning real estate market research, on any device when and where they need it.

This is InformationWeek’s 28th year identifying and honoring the nation's most innovative users of information technology. Additional details on the InformationWeek Elite 100 can be found at
