How The InformationWeek 500 Are Chosen

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.

The 2013 InformationWeek 500 application period opens in December. You can register for next year at informationweek.com/500/preregister.htm. For more information, visit the InformationWeek 500 Resource Center. Send questions regarding the process to iw500@techweb.com. The 2012 InformationWeek 500 report, which includes all the aggregated survey data, can be downloaded free with registration at informationweek.com/reports/2012/500.
