Welcome to the CIO50 2019

CIO is proud to launch the inaugural CIO50 list in ASEAN, recognising the top 50 senior technology executives driving innovation and influencing rapid change.

Reflective of IDG’s increasing commitment to the region, CIO50 is aligned to a global awards program and viewed as a mark of excellence within the enterprise.

CIO50 – in association with IBM – was judged on two core pillars of Business Innovation and Leadership, honouring transformational and disruptive CIOs at both in-country and regional levels within Southeast Asia.

Under the Innovation pillar, submissions described the technology innovation/s introduced over the past two years that have changed the way the business operates.

Under the Leadership pillar, the nominations outlined the ways in which the technology leader has collaborated and influenced the organisation and its leadership team.

Whether a small project or large company-wide initiative, entrants documented the positive impact of technology and the business benefits of disruptive thinking.

On behalf of team at CIO in ASEAN, thank you to all entrants for your inspiring stories of innovation and leadership.

James Henderson,
Editorial Director,
CIO ASEAN.
