2004 Innovators & Influencers: Bearing Down On The Future

It's sure to be a year of change in business technology. Here are some of the people who will drive that change.

There's an exec hoping to create a "technology epicenter" in the South; a tech veteran who's trying to make bureaucracy work more efficiently; a CEO trying to spread some virtual enlightenment around IT services; a CIO who's wiring up Cleveland; a chairman who's transformed his company from seller of consumer software to a provider of highly strategic security software; a pioneer in the travel industry; a legal eagle who helps protect software buyers; a CIO pushing "wholesale in a box"; a state CIO helping other CIOs; an impatient chief technology officer who wants to build a radio from ordinary silicon; and a CIO who's job affects a lot of lives.
