Discover Financial Services (NYSE: DFS) earned a spot on this year’s InformationWeek Elite 100 – a list of the top business technology innovators in the U.S. Discover made the list by developing a new application that provides a fully comprehensive, customer-centric view and supplies account managers with better data and up-to-the-minute information, allowing them to provide superior customer service.

“As a leading direct bank and payments partner, delivering the best possible customer service via the phone, internet and mobile is one of our highest priorities,” said Glenn Schneider, chief information officer at Discover, which ranked 71 on this year’s InformationWeek Elite 100 list. “We leveraged leading-edge data analytics and real-time technologies to help us instantly identify, understand and successfully address the needs of our customers.”

“The digital business movement is a force CIOs can't ignore. Digital businesses are adept at using the web in conjunction with mobile, social, analytics, and other technologies to boost sales and change their relationships with customers,” said InformationWeek Editor in Chief Rob Preston. “The 2014 InformationWeek Elite 100 highlights companies, such as Discover, that are leading this digital business revolution, redefining business models and reshaping industries.”

Unique among corporate rankings, the InformationWeek Elite 100 spotlights the power of business technology innovation. The InformationWeek Elite 100 research tracks the technology-based investments, strategies, and results of some of the best-known organizations in the country. This is InformationWeek’s 26 th year identifying and honoring the nation's most innovative users of information technology. The honor has evolved over the years and was narrowed from 500 to a more elite 100 this year.
