About the CIO 100 Awards:
The annual CIO 100 Awards celebrate 100 organizations and the teams within them that are using IT in innovative ways to deliver business value, whether by creating competitive advantage, optimizing business processes, enabling growth or improving relationships with customers. The award is an acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence.

Recipients of this year’s CIO 100 Award were selected through a three-step process. First, companies filled out an online application form detailing an innovative IT and business initiative. Next, a team of external judges (many of them former CIOs) reviewed the applications in depth, looking for leading-edge IT practices and measurable results. Finally, the CIO team reviewed the judges’ recommendations and selected the final 100.

Coverage of the 2020 CIO 100 award-winning projects will be available online at CIO.com in the weeks and months leading up to the event, and also in the summer issue of CIO’s digital magazine.

About the CIO Hall of Fame Awards:
The CIO Hall of Fame was created in 1997 to spotlight 12 outstanding IT leaders who had significantly contributed to and profoundly influenced the IT discipline, the use of technology in business and the advancement of the CIO role. Ten years later, in 2007, CIO inducted its second class of honorees into the CIO Hall of Fame during CIO magazine’s 20th anniversary celebration. CIO continues to showcase this elite group of CIOs – now numbering 151– during the CIO Hall of Fame induction ceremony. A list of all inductees can be viewed here.
