Top 10 rankings: No. 2 for training, No. 6 for career development
When this $8.2 billion global soft drink bottler with a small-but-mighty U.S. presence in Atlanta set out to modernize its technology infrastructure, platforms and business processes, it invited IT employees at many different stages of their careers and with a wide range of skills to share their ideas, set priorities and develop a long-range strategy. The resulting plan, known as the "IT 2.0 Road Map," is now being put into action, giving Coca-Cola IT staffers on-the-job experience with technologies such as virtualization, unified communications and platform as a service. The skills they're learning will serve them well as the business expands its adoption of emerging technologies.
