“The Premier 100 awards program showcases the exceptional work of a dedicated group of technology-savvy business leaders who are driving huge change in their organizations through IT,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “Every day, these exemplary business leaders make strategic technology decisions that track to their organizations' top priorities. These 100 men and women keep a keen eye on the changing landscape of political, economic, regulatory and technology trends that are driving significant shifts in IT. We are very pleased to recognize the leadership and honor the achievements of the 2013 Premier 100 honorees.”

“As CTO, Imran provides visible leadership within NTT DATA and the technology community, while actively working with our clients to help them define both their business and technology strategies,” said John McCain, President and CEO of NTT DATA, Inc. “Imran’s recognition as a Premier 100 IT Leader acknowledges and reinforces his deep expertise and abilities as an innovative leader – a well deserved recognition.”

Sayeed leads the Applications Development and Management practice as well as the innovation and development of technology for NTT DATA, Inc.  He has helped ensure its applications business, the largest business component in the Americas region, has continued to outpace market growth.  Under his guidance, SociallyTM, NTT DATA’s collaboration and gamification platform, is changing behavior, increasing employee productivity, and enhancing global collaboration.

About the Premier 100
The Premier 100 program was created in 2000 to spotlight individuals who have had a positive impact on their organizations through technology. These are individuals who manage internal IT organizations, mentor and motivate their IT teams and business colleagues, create a positive work environment, envision innovative solutions to business challenges and effectively manage and execute IT strategies. Each year, nominees are invited to complete a questionnaire that addresses a number of topics, including their background and experience and their attitude toward risk and innovation. Using Computerworld’s IT Leader Index, which is a measurement of how closely an individual matches our definition of the IT Leader, we analyze the data. Each year, 100 honorees are selected to receive this life-time recognition award. Information on previous honorees can be viewed at: www.computerworld.com/s/article/9065479/Premier_100_IT_Leaders
