The 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 Hall of Fame Awards

CIO’s Hall of Fame is a personal leadership award that celebrates outstanding achievement in information technology management. The CIO Hall of Fame honors the men and women whose work has advanced the CIO role and demonstrated sustained business success. 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.
