The annual OCRI Awards recognize excellence in research and innovation of organizations and individuals in Ottawa.

    In 2005, QNX won in the same category for its worldwide automotive ecosystem and in 2004 won OCRI’s highest honor, the “OCRI Award,” for its significant contributions to promoting Ottawa to the world as a technology center of excellence.

    This year, OCRI named the QNX and Intel Multi-Core Expedite Program as the winner based on the program’s contributions to the global software community.

As the two early leaders in multi-core technologies, Intel and QNX are exclusive partners in a global program to provide complete dual-core computing platforms to targeted early-adopter companies. The successful program is now entering its second year with expanded plans for more advanced hardware and broader geographic reach.

    “The award is a testament to how QNX and Intel are working hand-in-hand to help developers migrate to multi-core processors,” said Dave Curley, vice president of marketing at QNX Software Systems. “Software and hardware partnerships between QNX and companies such as Intel are key to accelerating the adoption of new technology solutions.”
