The Top 100 Chief Information Officers meet the following criteria:
The Chief Information/Technology Officer has become the point-person for innovation and the forerunner for change inside today’s organizations, inexorably linked to this information generation of rapid progress nad as the role of technology has shifted, so too has the role of the CIO and CTO. ‘Big Data’ is the watchword, with the volume and importance of information constantly rising.
