Foundry’s CIO 100 award recognizes enterprise excellence and innovation in IT
MILWAUKEE, March 21, 2022 — Foundry’s CIO has named Rockwell Automation as a 2022 CIO 100 award winner. For more than 30 years, the CIO 100 Awards have recognized innovative organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of strategic and operational excellence in IT.
“This year’s CIO 100 class demonstrates grit, innovation and deep teamwork. Many projects are related to streamlining data flows and insights to drive the business, bringing innovations like the metaverse to life, and driving value during the pandemic in myriad ways,” said Anne McCrory, Group VP, Customer Experience & Operations, Foundry, formerly IDG Communications, Inc. “We are honored to showcase these achievements and the people behind them as we gather in person once again for a team-based experience at the CIO 100 Symposium & Awards in California in August.”
“The CIO 100 Awards is a widely respected program, and for Rockwell Automation to be recognized for our enterprise-wide transformation efforts that: 1) delivers outcomes based on intelligent and connected products/services; 2) redefines the employee and customer experience; and 3) realigns our business operating model (processes and technologies) to support subscription-based offerings, is truly an honor,” said Chris Nardecchia, senior vice president and Chief Digital & Information Officer. “Transformation is never easy and requires engagement and change leadership from all functions in the organization. No one group, or individual, can deliver on a transformation agenda – it requires the entire executive leadership team and their organizations. Knowing how disruptive as transformation can be, on top of the necessity of performing daily operations, it is one that we knew was necessary to excel as an enterprise. This award underscores how impactful our cross-functional approach and alignment to the company strategy is in advancing Rockwell Automation on behalf of our customers on their transformation journeys."

Across the globe, the flagship AllenBradley® and FactoryTalk® product brands continue to receive recognition for excellence. Rockwell Automation works with organizations to optimize plant or operation performance with flexible service options or
