TORONTO, Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Celestica Inc. (NYSE, TSX: CLS), a global
leader in the delivery of end-to-end product lifecycle solutions, today announced that it has been recognized by IDG’s Computerworld as a
Best of BI Editor’s Choice Awards honouree. This awards program

and will also have the opportunity to showcase their initiatives at
Computerworld’s 2012 BI & Analytics Perspectives conference September
9-11, 2012 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Celestica was recognized by Computerworld for developing and
successfully deploying an enterprise-wide Business Analytics Centre of
Excellence that helps Celestica solve its customers’ complex business
challenges including demand analytics, material pricing, and preventive

the use of operations research, data mining and statistical analysis
with other business intelligence technologies to achieve predictive
insight into a wide range of business areas.

“Celestica’s Business Analytics Center of Excellence is a key IT program
that delivers strategic value to our customers by helping them make
faster and more informed decisions,” said Mary Gendron, Chief

Computerworld Best of BI Editor’s Choice Awards honouree for driving

“The organizations honoured in this year’s Best of BI Editor’s Choice
awards program have learned how to get the valuable insights they need
from their data using business intelligence and analytics tools,” said
Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “The projects
spotlighted run the gamut from a charitable organization using BI to
boost donations to a trucking company using analytics to enhance driver
productivity without sacrificing safety. Each of the organizations

is making better business decisions and, in some cases, generating new
revenue streams and tapping into new markets. They’re taking BI to the
next level.”

About the Best of BI Editor’s Choice Awards

The Computerworld Best of BI Editor’s Choice awards program was launched
in 2012 by IDG’s Computerworld editorial team to recognize successful business intelligence projects at
organizations across the country. Organizations were asked to complete
questionnaires detailing their BI projects, which were then reviewed by
the Computerworld editorial team. From those questionnaires, 10 honourees were selected
for their ability to make better business decisions using BI and
predictive analytics tools. The honourees were recognized in the August
27th issue of Computerworld, on Computerworld.com and at Computerworld’s 2012 BI & Analytics
Perspectives conference September 9-11, 2012 in Phoenix, Arizona.
