CIO50: ASEAN’s top 50 CIOs

Welcome to the third running of CIO50 in ASEAN, recognising the top 50 senior technology executives driving market-leading innovation, demonstrating standout leadership and influencing rapid change.

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

In 2021, CIO50 will be judged on the core pillars of Innovation and Leadership, honouring transformational, inspiring and enduring CIOs at both in-country and regional levels within ASEAN.

The role of technology leaders – whether CIO, CTO or CDO – continues to change at pace post-pandemic, driven by the emergence of new technologies, business models and market dynamics. CIO50 will capture this change through highlighting the innovative work of individuals and organisations across the region.

In housing the most influential IT executives across Southeast Asia, CIO50 speaks directly to the reality of how organisations continue to evolve post-pandemic and where CIOs are concentrating resources to capitalise on future opportunities.

Whether a small project or large company-wide initiative, submissions span digital transformation, cloud and security, in addition to infrastructure modernisation, agile workplace innovation and the implementation of both established and emerging technologies.

After 25 highlighted CIOs and organisations, the remaining 25 honourees recognised are listed alphabetically by company. This year will also see the introduction of two individual awards, acknowledging CIO excellence across Innovation and Leadership.

Submissions will form the basis of written profiles of all 50 technology leaders, published by James Henderson, Editorial Director of CIO in ASEAN.

Set for Wednesday 1 December, the CIO50 will be unveiled during a celebration ceremony hosted virtually, alongside dedicated editorial streams deep-diving into CIO next steps as Southeast Asia repositions for growth.
