LAS VEGAS--()--Info-Tech Research Group today announced the 2019 Info-Tech CIO award winners at Info-Tech LIVE, being held in Las Vegas this week, Nov. 19-21.

The most authoritative event for IT executives and leaders globally, the two days of Info-Tech LIVE will be filled with engaging and informative sessions led by Info-Tech’s research analysts and practitioners.

At the event, Info-Tech will hold the 2019 Info-Tech CIO awards ceremony, honoring outstanding CIOs, based on unbiased data from the Info-Tech CIO Business Vision survey, a powerful tool that formalizes IT feedback and delivers a standard to measure great CIO leadership. This year’s annual survey captures feedback from 16,500 business leaders and measures stakeholder satisfaction with IT.

“The Info-Tech CIO awards focus on the most vital aspect of any IT leader’s success, which is stakeholder satisfaction,” said Geoff Nielson, vice president, product development and innovation, Info-Tech Research Group. “The recipients of these awards are not determined by the subjective opinions of any awards committee, instead, the IT satisfaction and value scores are evaluated by the recipients’ direct business stakeholders.”

Speaking at the event, Steven Nino, CIO, Soboba Casino Resort and Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians said, “I am delighted to receive the prestigious 2019 Info-Tech Research Group CIO award. As an IT leader, it speaks volumes for the efforts we make to understand our stakeholders and deliver business and stakeholder satisfaction. What sets our efforts apart is the time we invest in engaging with leaders from various business functions. As a tribal government and gaming and hospitality facility, our IT infrastructure and digital transformation efforts are key to the success of our business along with our government initiatives geared to help grow the Soboba tribe and build a long-term future for the youth of Soboba.
