CIO 100 Award winners announced

CIO100 logo web (2)CNME’s inaugural CIO 100 Awards ceremony took place yesterday, honouring the top 100 C-level IT talent from across the region.

Endorsed by International Data Group, the CIO 100 Awards have been taking place in the United States for the last 30 years, but have finally made their way to the Middle East.

The Jumeirah Beach Hotel procession celebrated 100 organisations and their IT figureheads that have been using technology innovatively throughout 2014 to deliver business value.

Applicants had to show not only that they had executed a project well but also that they had done so in uncommon, innovative ways: pioneering a new technology, applying a familiar technology to a new purpose or setting the bar higher for their competitors.

The extent to which organisations used IT in a new way or enabled new ways of doing business, whether internally or externally, as well as having a measurable impact – backed up by supporting data – will be what makes the difference.

“We’re incredibly proud to have brought this globally-recognised awards programme to the Middle East for the first time,” said Jeevan Thankappan, Group Editor, Technology Division, CPI Media Group. “All the winners have gone the extra mile in setting their organisations apart through the use of technology.”
