About the Awards:
To be a next-gen enterprise technology leader is by no means an easy task today. The technical competencies and skill set of that served well for CIOs in the past are not sufficient any more. With the CIO role metamorphosing quite a few times over the years, it has been tough for most technology decision makers to match steps with this change. CIO 1.0 leveraged technology for business growth, while CIO 2.0 witnessed technology making an entry into the C-suite. The present day CIO 3.0 demands building substantial value for the corporate’s shareholders.
There are only a handful of CIOs who have been able to transition from the first two orbits to reach the third orbit. This CIO 3.0 club comprises technology decision makers who are exceptional communicators, effective team leaders, trusted partners of the top management, and above all, drivers of business value.
BW CIOWorld, which embodies the spirit of recognizing and celebrating next-gen CIOs, strongly believes it is time to felicitate such IT decision makers who have exemplified strong technology-business implementations.
To recognize outstanding vision and performance in the role of a CIO of an enterprise, BW CIOWorld launches the CIO 3.0 Award. The CIO 3.0 Award is certainly not a regular award for regular CIOs. It will stand head and shoulders above the clutter of existing awards in the industry and on a CIOs office shelf. Our innovative approach towards the awards is reflected in the minutest of details – right from the design of the trophy to the assessment criteria. In addition to the award trophy and certificate the winners will see a strong level of engagement with BW Businessworld and BW CIOWorld throughout the year.
