 STAMFORD, Conn., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Gartner Group and The Conference Board today announced that the winer of the 1992 Excellence in Technology award is Donald V. Fites, chairman and chief executive officer of Caterpillar Inc.
 The award is presented annually to a CEO who has utilized information services to build and sustain the company's strategic objectives. It is sponsored by Gartner Group, the leading worldwide provider of technology-related information services, and The Conference Board, a group dedicated to improving the business enterprise system and enhancing the contribution of business to society.
 Fites won the award for his support of information technology to increase productivity in manufacturing and his work in implementing EDI to link suppliers, dealers, and customers of Caterpillar, the world's largest manufacturer of earth-moving, construction and materials-handling equipment and a leading manufacturer of engines.
 The benefits reaped from these activities include improved service, increased product value, lower costs and higher quality. The award will be presented during a reception and luncheon on Tuesday Feb. 4, at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York.

"Donald Fites has shown extraordinary understanding of how to best use technology to help his company achieve its strategic goals. We applaud his efforts and encourage other CEOs to follow his lead," said Manny Fernandez, chief executive officer of Gartner Group.
