The CIO 100 Award Ceremony and Hall of Fame Induction

For nearly three decades, our CIO 100 Awards have celebrated the innovative use of technology to deliver genuine business value. Recipients of this year’s CIO 100 Award were selected through a three-step process. First, companies filled out an online application form detailing their innovative IT and business initiatives. Next, a team of external judges (many of them former CIOs) reviewed the applications in depth, looking for leading-edge IT practices and measurable results. Finally, CIO editors reviewed the judges’ recommendations and selected the final 100.

This prestigious award honors the men and women whose work has profoundly shaped the IT/business landscape, demonstrating both creative vision and practical leadership in information technology. Entrance into the CIO Hall of Fame is the mark of a distinguished, highly respected career in IT. Applicants are carefully vetted by our alumni judges. Since our first class of honorees in 1997, each new group represents IT leadership at its very best.
