A Great I.T. Honour
The annual CIO 100 index highlights the regional enterprises and organisations that have excelled through creative and innovative IT projects in the past year. Companies that achieve CIO 100 listing have broken new ground by using IT systems, initiatives and projects to provide added value to their customers.
Becoming a CIO 100 honouree gives an organisation greater regional and global visibility - yes, it's great PR. And companies on each year's CIO 100 index are then considered by our panel of independent judges for one of the year's five most coveted CIO Awards - the greatest honour bestowed upon any enterprise user of IT in the region.
If you make the CIO 100 2011 index, you will be joining some very esteemed company from past years. Past CIO Award winners have included some of the Asia Pacific's most progressive organisations.
Whether transforming existing IT infrastructure into an agile, real-time system, or successfully working new technologies into traditional business processes, enterprises that achieve listing in the CIO 100 index each year receive considerable acclaim. They can stand proud in their industry as inspiration and proof that striking new paths in information and communication technology use, yields business, greater profits and even social rewards.
The 2011 CIO 100 honorees and the five CIO Award winners will be featured in a very special annual edition - CIO Asia Volume 2, April 2011. Executives from the five winning companies will also be recognised among their peers and colleagues at the CIO Conference & Awards ceremony, to be held in Singapore, 8 March 2011.
