IDG’s CIO 100 Symposium honors recipients of two awards programs at the conference each year: the CIO 100 innovation award and the CIO Hall of Fame leadership award. The CIO 100 is an acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence in business technology, awarded to IT organizations for driving business value through technology innovation. The Hall of Fame is a personal leadership honor for outstanding CIOs who have made profound contributions to their companies as well as the business technology world. Both programs are open for submissions from November 5, 2018 to February 4, 2019.

The Annual CIO 100 Awards celebrates 100 organizations and the teams within them that are using IT in innovative ways to deliver business value, whether by creating competitive advantage, optimizing business processes, enabling growth or improving relationships with customers. It is an acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence. Because the award is given to companies rather than individuals, it’s an honor that everyone on your staff can take pride in.
CIO’s Hall of Fame is a personal leadership award that celebrates outstanding achievement in information technology management. Unlike the CIO 100 awards (which are given to IT organizations, not individuals), the CIO Hall of Fame honors the men and women whose work has advanced the CIO role and demonstrated sustained business success.
Nominees for this award must be currently serving as CIOs and have at least 10-15 years’ experience in CIO roles at mid-sized to large enterprises. Along with their significant career accomplishments in the field of IT, Hall of Fame members have all demonstrated substantial business impact and technology vision within one or more organizations. They have a reputation for leadership among their peers (as well as with outside entities such as the media or industry experts) and they have shown a positive influence on the IT profession through their accomplishments as technology business leaders.
The CIO Hall of Fame program will accept nominations from November 12 to January 1, 2019. Nominations will be reviewed as they are received, and qualified nominees will be contacted with the opportunity to complete an application. Applications will be accepted through February 4, 2019.
