Business and Digital Transformation Recognized by Computerworld's 2015 Premier 100 Award

FRAMINGHAM, MA -- (Marketwired) -- Nov 04, 2014 -- IDG's Computerworld -- the leading IT media brand dedicated to being the voice of business technology -- reveals the 2015 Computerworld Premier 100 IT Leaders. This year's Premier 100 spotlights 100 leaders from both the technology and business sides of companies for their exceptional technology leadership and innovative approaches to business challenges. The honorees will be recognized during the AGENDA Conference, co-produced by CIO, Computerworld and the CIO Executive Council.

The AGENDA15 conference will be held March 30-April 1, 2015, at Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort in Amelia Island, Florida. Recipients of another award, the new Digital Edge 25 Award, will also be recognized at AGENDA15.

"The Premier 100 awards program showcases the innovative work of a dedicated group of IT leaders who are using technology to solve business problems in their organizations," said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. "Every day, these tech-savvy professionals are positioning their organizations for success by mapping IT projects to strategic business initiatives. They also ensure that their departments are set up to quickly enable new ideas, and they balance the need for free and open access to information with concerns about security and compliance. These 100 men and women are using their vast experience in managing people and projects to stay a step ahead. We're pleased to recognize their leadership and honor their achievements."

Among the many types of Premier 100 projects earning recognition is transformation to a digital-centric enterprise. Digital transformation is the theme of the AGENDA15 conference, which will bring together more than 300 senior IT and line of business leaders, including the Premier 100 honorees. The event will create a unique atmosphere for cross-functional business discussions, into which technology solution providers can integrate themselves from the beginning.

"Business transformation through the use of technology is occurring at lightning speed because of innovative and resourceful technology and business leaders, like the Premier 100 honorees," said Adam Dennison, SVP and publisher. "I am excited to have the 2015 Premier 100 honorees come together at AGENDA15 to share their success stories of utilizing the SMAC stack (Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud) to fuel their organization's digital transformation."

About the Premier 100
The Premier 100 program was created in 2000 to spotlight individuals who have had a positive impact on their organizations through technology. These are individuals who manage internal IT organizations, mentor and motivate their IT teams and business colleagues, create a positive work environment, envision innovative solutions to business challenges and effectively manage and execute IT strategies. Each year nominees are invited to complete a survey that addresses a number of topics, including their background and experience and their attitude toward risk and innovation. Using Computerworld's IT Leader Index, which is a measurement of how closely an individual matches our definition of the IT Leader, we analyze the data. Each year, 100 honorees are selected to receive this life-time recognition award.
