Enterprise Systems Power 100

The Enterprise Systems
Our Picks for Today’sTop IT Leaders
Forget about California’s energy crisis for a minute.
Try to momentarily set aside your thoughts on this summer’s outrageous prices for
a gallon of gas. This is a story about a different kind of energy – the energy
and ability certain individuals have to profoundly influence your life as an IT
decision-maker. In fact, it’s about the power to influence the lives of all of
us who work with technology.
The 100 technology experts, industry leaders, political
heavies, media stars, millionaires, techie geniuses—and yes, a few oddballs and
misfits (we’ll let you find them in the list yourself)—that make up this group
were carefully selected by the editors of Enterprise Systems for a specific
reason: They’ve affected the IT landscape for better or worse or have the power
to greatly affect it going forward.
These 100 people range from powerful CEOs and top
politicians, to bright scientific and mathematical minds that have contributed
to the advance of technologies ranging from consumer electronic devices, to
robotics, to peer-to-peer, to international security—and a host of other key
advances. Sure, we’ve got Gerstner and Gates, McNealy and Fiorina and Chambers,
but do you know who we’ve labeled the first “new economy” U.S. senator? Do you
know who the country’s top cyber-cop is? And who’s making storage sexy these
days? Who’s the longest-tenured CEO in the PC industry? And who uses technology
to churn out some of the movie industry’s coolest special effects? They’re all
here in the ES Power 100—movers and shakers and influential figures all.
Did we leave out someone who has transformed the world
of IT for you? Did we inadvertently include someone you absolutely know should
not be on this list? Send us your feedback at email@example.com. We’ll print a
sampling of your comments in an upcoming issue.
