The Global CIO award is instituted by InformationWeek to CIO's
whose responsibilities extend to the global level

About Us

 InformationWeek has been closely monitoring the emerging and vital role of a CIO in today's businesses. Today, CIOs are expected to be abreast not only in terms of technology and business needs, but also in terms of their leadership skills. In recognition of this challenging role, InformationWeek instituted its annual "Global CIO Award". 
The Global CIO award is instituted by InformationWeek to CIOs whose responsibilities extend to the global level. The word "global" here refers to the scope of the CIOs operations and is hence not limited to geographical boundaries. This award is presented to CIOs for their direct contribution to the business through strategic decision, innovation and cutting-edge projects. In 2009, ten CIOs from leading Indian organizations spanning diverse industry verticals made it to the first-ever Global CIO 50 List. In 2010, three Indian CIOs shared this honor, while in 2011 seven CIOs topped the list.

In its fourth year, InformationWeek once again invites nominations from Indian CIOs for their exceptional contribution to their respective business on the global level.

The InformationWeek Global CIOs from India will be chosen by a jury that includes InformationWeek editors from the US and India. They will also present the awards at a gala ceremony at INTEROP Mumbai on 10th October 2012. Winners will be announced in the September issue of InformationWeek India, and subsequently in the US issue.

Please refer to the Methodology section for details on how we assess and select the winners.
