How We Chose the 2014 CIO 100 Winners

Starting last November, we solicited applications for the 2014 CIO 100 Awards through ads, online newsletters and electronic mailings to our contacts. Entrants filled out an online application between November 2013 and late February 2014. Although most applications came from companies headquartered in North America, the pool included entries from multiple continents.

Each application was read by two of the 42 CIO 100 judges—a list that included former CIOs, academic experts and independent consultants. The judges evaluated the applications according to two criteria: innovation and business value. Applications that received a score of 16 or higher (out of a possible 20) were selected for a second round of scrutiny by CIO editors.

We examined how each company stacked up against the others in the pool, putting emphasis on submissions that told the best stories about generating business value through creative and cutting-edge uses of technology. We sought to pull the most exciting initiatives from the pack and reward them with the CIO 100 honor.

The companies we selected for this year’s CIO 100 Awards range from nonprofits to multibillion-dollar global powerhouses, and they come from every industry. Companies had to demonstrate not only that they were able to create new value using IT and to execute their project well, but also that they did so in uncommon, innovative ways: pioneering a new technology, applying a familiar technology to a new purpose, setting the bar higher for their competitors. We also emphasized projects that, due to their scope and impact, are helping propel companies to a more profitable future. In short, these organizations are technology leaders.

The list of award winners was published in the June 1 issue of CIO magazine, and award plaques will be handed out at the 2014 CIO 100 Symposium and Awards Ceremony, Aug. 17-19, in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.
