The 13th annual CIO 100 Index and CIO Awards were announced and presented in Singapore on 13 March, at the day-long CIO Asia magazine Conference and Awards ceremony at Singapore's Marina Mandarin Hotel. The award winners will be profiled in CIO Asia magazine's April-May 2013 edition, due to hit desks in the second week of April.
Fairfax Business 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 increasing focus on enhancing customer experience as a guiding principle behind their IT initiatives.
"The winning projects exemplify how new areas such as social media and mobility have become significant foci of the enterprise. This is evident that CIOs and their stakeholders have managed to surmount barriers to realise new IT value."
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.
