Raleigh, Oct. 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RegEd, a leading provider of technology solutions for compliance and risk management, today announced that its CIO, Brian Lora, has been named CIO of the Year for Innovation and Transformation by the Triangle Business Journal. This is the inaugural year for the CIO awards given by the Triangle Business Journal. The awards program is designed to recognize chief information officers in the Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill areas of North Carolina, who have used technology in innovative ways to create competitive advantages, optimize business processes and enable growth. Brian Lora was chosen from a group of twenty-three finalists who represent area industries from Fortune 100 technology companies to banks and institutions of higher education as well as government agencies.
Since Brian joined RegEd almost two years ago, he has continually demonstrated a standard of excellence and forward thinking, implementing infrastructure improvements and software development lifecycle improvements (SDLC).

He also restructured and improved RegEd's ability to deliver aggressive B2B web-based applications and page refresh times to over two million business users. His work in software development lifecycle improvements shows an equal degree of initiative and ingenuity when he re-factored RegEd's SDLC to support greater, higher-quality releases every 90-120 days.
