Framingham, Massachusetts, UNITED STATES

FRAMINGHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2013) - IDG's CIO, the executive-level IT media brand providing insight into business technology leadership, is proud to announce the 2013 CIO 100 winners. This annual awards program recognizes 100 organizations that have distinguished themselves by creating business value through the innovative use of IT. The winners will be recognized during a gala awards dinner and ceremony at the CIO 100 Symposium & Awards Ceremony, being held August 11-13, 2013 at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

"Every year we are so impressed by the resourceful, business-savvy use of technology across all of our CIO 100 winning companies," said Maryfran Johnson, editor in chief of CIO magazine & events. "This year we saw a much greater emphasis on faster project turnarounds and speed of delivery, use of mobility and social technologies, and smarter use of all sorts of data to engage customers."

Insight into Award Winning IT
Weaved into sessions on mobility, big data, collaboration, cloud and IT leadership, CIO 100 winners will share success stories and strategies designed to help their peers find innovative solutions to today's IT challenges. These conversations will be especially detailed during the CIO 100 Innovators Workshop -- a session where attendees take part in small group conversations with selected award recipients. The symposium concludes with an awards ceremony recognizing the 2013 CIO 100 winners. The full agenda can be viewed at CIO 100 Symposium & Awards Ceremony.

"The CIO 100 not only celebrates IT innovation, but lays the groundwork for IT executives to replicate winning projects at their organization and propel their business forward," said Adam Dennison, VP & publisher of CIO. "I am excited to have a robust group of IT solution providers participating in the 2013 CIO 100 Symposium to lead discussions and share case studies on how they can partner with the attendees to make their IT strategies and goals a reality."
