Among this year's CIO 100 honorees are leading technology-savvy companies that are supporting today's most innovative and value-driven IT / business initiatives.
Firstsource was recognised by CIO magazine as an early adopter of network and desktop virtualisation.
Firstsource is the new name of ICICI Onesource. (See: ICICI Onesource is now Firstsource; to list on BSE, NSE) It was the first Indian BPO to be BS7799 certified and most of its operations centres are ISO 20000 and/or ISO 27001 certified.
"This year's CIO 100 awards draws well-deserved attention to companies that are both innovating and creating business value with IT despite the economic downturn," said Maryfran Johnson, editor in chief of CIO magazine & Events. "These winners are an inspiration to businesses everywhere," he added.
''The current economic climate presents the unique challenge of helping companies cut costs and also support business expansion to newer, uncharted markets.

''I am pleased that CIO magazine has chosen to recognise our technology leadership and expertise.''
