Unique among corporate rankings, the InformationWeek 500 spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders. Candidate organizations are asked to complete an application as well as an essay question. Winners will be featured in the InformationWeek 500 issue and recognized at the InformationWeek Conference and Awards Gala in September 2011.
Now in its 23rd year, the InformationWeek 500 tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of the best-known companies in the country. 2010 winners include The Vanguard Group, Colgate-Palmolive, USAA, and Monster Worldwide, among others.

"InformationWeek and recognition through the InformationWeek 500 awards are valuable to us because the award is about innovation and setting your company apart within the industry. We carefully considered whether or not to do a write up on Oasis of the Seas’ innovations because we wanted to make sure that the recognition would be about the amazing accomplishments of our very creative and innovative staff. From the subject matter experts to developers, engineers, project managers, and the collaboration with the business operating teams, we wanted to make sure that any recognition was first and foremost about the accomplishment of the teams that made it happen. That is after all, the only way this recognition happened. I congratulate all of the companies that have been recognized and am extraordinarily proud of our team. They really delivered the Wow!
