Introducing The Technology Leaders Index

"We look forward to sharing how pacesetter organisations are deploying disruptive emerging technologies"

By Edward Qualtrough

Computer Business Review (CBR) and sister title NS Tech have launched a new Technology Leaders Index initiative as a guide to the digital, IT and technology capabilities of organisations, their IT teams and the CIOs and CTOs leading those functions.

Supported by research from data analytics and consulting company GlobalData, NS Media Group’s Technology Leaders Index will recognise the pacesetters from the private, public and non-profit sectors, and how they are using technology innovations to transform their businesses.

Organisations, their tech functions and CIOs are invited to take part in our research looking at innovative technology projects and initiatives by submitting responses to a short survey to be eligible for recognition in the Technology Leaders Index. The deadline to submit your projects and initiatives is Friday 31 July.

The Technology Leaders Index jury will recognise an organisation, its IT function and CIO for technology projects and initiatives in the following areas:

  • Innovative use of cloud
  • Innovative use of data
  • Cyber security initiatives and responses
  • Technology initiatives driving revenue growth
  • Innovative use of disruptive emerging tech, for example this could be IoT, robotics or AI
  • Smart partnering with vendors and ecosystems
  • Initiatives helping an organisation realise its sustainability goals
  • Initiatives to develop diversity in technology to better represent the talent in the sector

The Technology Leaders Index will also utilise GlobalData‘s extensive research and data sets into company filings and patents, and the technology deals, partnerships and recruitment moves companies are making to assess their approaches to the most important technology ‘themes’ driving innovation and disruption.

NS Media Group Technology Editor, Edward Qualtrough, said: “The Technology Leaders Index is a great opportunity for digital, IT and technology teams – and those managing those functions – to show how innovations in cloud, data and other technologies, together with smart partnering with vendors, are transforming business models.

“We look forward to sharing how pacesetter organisations are deploying disruptive emerging technologies. Collaborating with our partners GlobalData and its extensive data sets will help us show how some companies’ tech investments, vendor partnerships, patent applications, company filings and hiring approaches for tech jobs such as AI developers, data scientists and cyber security experts are marking them out as technology innovation leaders.”
