NEW YORK, Oct. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to technology, IT can help change the way business is done. Who are the bold IT leaders using tech to transform enterprises today?

(UBM Tech/InformationWeek)

This is the question that the editors of InformationWeek ask every year when it comes to choosing our Chief of the Year. If leadership is about being bold, and trying new ideas when other say no, then who are the men and women taking these steps to see where technology can lead their business?

Join InformationWeek Editor and Strategic CIO Community Leader Chris Murphy as he leads the nominating process for this year's Chief of the Year. Starting now, InformationWeek is accepting nominations for the award, and readers can email Murphy directly at:

In the past three years, InformationWeek has honored strategic thinkers and leaders in a number of diverse businesses and fields, including education, Major League Baseball, and the coffee industry.

Last year, InformationWeek focused on one of the most important areas that is being transformed by IT: Education. In fact, InformationWeek recognized five different CIOs who are leading the education industry through a technological change.

Some of the leaders InformationWeek honored in 2013, included: Loretta Early for her work to bring the University of Oklahoma's scattered digital efforts under a single school initiative, and Arizona State CIO Gordon Wishon who spearheaded an aggressive online education program.
