Our editors consider quantitative and qualitative factors to select top innovators.
Now in its 24th year, the InformationWeek 500 recognizes business technology teams that have made a notable improvement to how their companies operate. The InformationWeek 500 is open to U.S. companies with revenue of $250 million or more (or subsidiaries with $250 million or more in revenue). This year, we made a few exceptions to allow companies just below that revenue that are highly IT-intensive.
To be considered for the IW 500, companies complete a rigorous application on their business technology strategies. The ranking process is quantitative and qualitative, whereby applicants earn points based a questionnaire and based on the achievements they outline in an essay submission. Applications are evaluated by a panel of InformationWeek editors. The survey data is aggregated across all InformationWeek 500 companies and by industry; individual responses are kept confidential and individual company data is never disclosed without permission.
