InformationWeek 500: How We Picked The ListInformationWeek 500: How We Picked The List
It's not just the biggest IT spenders -- accomplishment is what really matters.
September 13, 2007
For 19 years, the InformationWeek 500 has tracked the most innovative business technology organizations. What's unique about the InformationWeek 500 is that it measures and celebrates accomplishment; it doesn't just list the biggest IT spenders.
To be ranked, companies with at least $500 million in annual revenue are asked to complete a qualifying application that examines business technology strategies. The application contains a quantitative section on technology initiatives and priorities, and a qualitative section of essay questions. The responses to these two sections are evaluated, weighted, and combined into a total score to rank the companies.
Although InformationWeek 500 companies reveal key elements of their IT and business spending plans and budgets, the data is aggregated by industry, and individual responses are kept confidential. Advantage Business Research provided telephone research support for this year's InformationWeek 500, and CIC Research supplied data analysis.
A full research report of aggregated data is available at informationweekresearch.com.
