How We Chose the 2015 CIO 100 Winners

Starting last November, we solicited applications for the 2015 CIO 100 Awards through ads, online newsletters and electronic mailings to our contacts. Entrants filled out an online application between November 2014 and late February 2015. 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 34 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 list of award winners was published in the June 1 issue of CIO magazine, and award plaques will be handed out at the 2015 CIO 100 Symposium and Awards Ceremony, Aug. 9-11, at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo.
