Executive Networks Media's Editor of CIO Asia magazine, T.C. Seow, said the entries to this year's CIO 100 list have again shown very high standards in terms of breadth and depth of implementation, as well as the social impact these projects have on customers as well as stakeholders throughout. The increasing focus on enhancing customer experience as a guiding principle behind their IT initiatives has served the winning organisations well to win the judges' approval.
"The winning projects exemplify how cloud services, mobile solutions, healthcare services and security features have been put to good use to serve not just the respective organisations but also their customers. All this underlines the CIOs' ability to think out of the box to realise greater IT value, and to pursue wider applicability in realising their IT goals," he said.
The expert panel of experts made their selections based on the details provided, relating to best practice, in areas including knowledge management, e-business innovation, people management, and value chain excellence. Other criteria included customer service, security, resourcing, cost management and quantifying IT value.
The award winners will be profiled in CIO Asia magazine's April-May 2014 edition, due to hit desks in the second week of April.
