Methodology: How We Picked Our IT Innovators

Since 1998, the InformationWeek 500 has tracked the IT agendas of the nation's largest and most innovative IT organizations, providing a unique opportunity to understand and examine their business practices across core areas of operations. To obtain a spot in this annual ranking, companies must demonstrate a pattern of technological, procedural, and organizational innovation. The InformationWeek 500 is open to companies with annual revenue of $1 billion or more that are U.S.-owned or traded on a U.S. stock exchange. The criteria used in the selection process of the InformationWeek 500 are determined by the magazine's editors.

The research entails identifying and ranking the companies after an extensive mail, phone, and fax study. Senior IT executives are surveyed on their organizational priorities and spending plans for the year ahead.

InformationWeek 500 companies are also awarded gold, silver, and bronze citations for their technology and business innovations. Last year's ranking is available online at informationweek.com/855/splash.htm.

Although InformationWeek 500 companies reveal key elements of their IT and business spending plans and budgets during the research process, the data is aggregated by industry, and individual responses aren't disclosed.
