The 7th Annual eWEEK Excellence Awards proudly announces this year's winners.

The Boys & Girls Clubs are winners, too. Click here to read why.
Back then, companies felt that they had finally grasped the whole business on the Web thing, not knowing that they would, in a few years, have to deal with a 2.0 version of the Web. And while we watched the death of the old ASP (application service provider)-hosted model, few of us realized that it would come back with a vengeance as on-demand and SAAS (software as a service).
But some things never change, such as the constant struggle to keep IT resources secure from external threats or the need to put solid computing tools in the hands of workers.

The seventh eWEEK Excellence Award winners come from longtime titans of technology as well as small upstarts using open-source technologies. But all the winners are the same in that they are providing the ingenuity and features that businesses need to stay on the cutting edge.
The seventh annual Excellence Awards program was open to any enterprise technology product announced in 2006 and released before the end of the first quarter of 2007. The eWEEK editorial staff judged the entries.
