To make the InformationWeek Elite 100, an organization must demonstrate a pattern of technological, procedural, and organizational innovation, as judged by InformationWeek editors. Only organizations with $250 million or more in annual revenue are eligible to participate (a company may also qualify if they are a subsidiary of a parent company with revenue of $250 million or more; one or more subsidiaries of a single parent may apply as long as the parent does not apply as well). Government agencies are exempt from the revenue requirement. The InformationWeek Elite 100 will examine the technology strategies and initiatives of companies across 23 industries, including higher education and government.
The 2015 InformationWeek Elite 100 application involves an essay describing your most innovative work and a simple survey on IT strategies and tactics. Both parts of the application must be completed in order to be considered for the 2015 InformationWeek Elite 100. The deadline for submitting the Innovation Essay is January 16, 2015.
