Credit Suisse AG Announces the Disruptive Technology Recognition Program

Credit Suisse AG announced today its inaugural Disruptive Technology Recognition (DTR) Program, an annual recognition of top companies who are disruptors of traditional enterprise information technology (IT Infrastructure).

The annual program will provide a bilateral discussion framework with Credit Suisse to strategize, network and exchange ideas across the organizations. A joint initiative between the bank‘s Investment Banking and Capital Markets division and Group Chief Technology Officer function, the DTR Program offers participants the opportunity to work collaboratively to promote innovation at the bank and at the Partner firms.

"Credit Suisse views disruptive technology as one way to drive progress in terms of IT innovation. Our DTR Program partners have looked at the current landscape and fundamentally want to alter it, for the better, with their vision. We look forward to learning from each other for years to come," said Laura Barrowman, Group Technology Officer and Group Chief Information Security Officer for Credit Suisse AG.

While Credit Suisse works with many partners across the technology space, the 2018 DTR Program looked specifically for game-changing companies that focus on improving IT infrastructure, with broad applicability across industries. In future years, Credit Suisse plans to expand the scope to look at IT companies in additional sectors. This year's DTR Program partners are:
