Things to consider: 

While we are interested in the technology used, we are most interested in the user environment in which this technology was used and how that technology provided benefits. Vendors are welcome to submit on behalf of a customer, but vendors must outline the use case, benefits achieved and user contact information so we can validate details with the user.
