The CIO100 2018 report honouring the most innovative CIOs and ICT leaders in New Zealand will be launched at breakfast events on March 27 at the Hilton Auckland and on March 28 at the Intercontinental in Wellington.
The CIO100 leaders were chosen by a panel of judges based on how they are delivering change across their organisations while excelling in business transformation, innovation and leadership (Meet the CIO100 leaders who made it to the list in 2017.)
In addition, the CIO100 event will applaud organisations and their leaders that are harnessing business technologies to help solve social and community issues. The top prize will be given to the organisation that best demonstrates this goal (Meet the 2017 winner and finalists in this category.)
