The annual CIO 100 Index and CIO Awards were announced and presented in Singapore on 7 May, at the day-long CXO Conference and Awards ceremony at Singapore's Raffles City Convention Centre. The award winners will be profiled in CIO Asia magazine's June-July edition, due to hit desks in the second week of June.
Executive Networks Media's Editor of CIO Asia magazine, T.C. Seow, said the entries to this year's CIO 100 list have shown extremely high standards in terms of breadth and depth of implementation, and the focus this year has shifted from merely improving on customer experience to realising more ambitious business goals overall.
"There is much indication that CIOs and their business counterparts are collaborating more. This augurs well for the CIOs in the region to becoming even more relevant to their organisations in the overall scheme of things to becoming more strategic and important to the board," said Seow.
The expert panel of experts made their selections based on the details provided, relating to best practice, in areas including knowledge management, e-business innovation, people management, and value chain excellence. Other criteria included customer service, security, resourcing, cost management and quantifying IT value.
