The Perfect Blend
MIS Asia’s 2011 Strategic 100 index lists the top hundred ICT companies without favour for their place of origin or their organisational size. Each Strategic 100 honouree owes its place on the index entirely to how well it performs along the previously mentioned measures. It does not matter whether the company is based in Asia or not. It does not matter whether the company is a small startup or a 30-year old software giant. If it was adjudged by our panel as one the 100 ICT companies that are most important to public and private organisations in Asia—it is on the Strategic 100 index.

The 2011 Strategic 100 honourees are categorised under three classes: the Global 75, the Regional 20 and the 5 Rising Stars.

The Global 75 are those generally accepted by our judges as world leaders in their field, in terms of reach, operational and financial might, and influence on the ICT industry.
 
The Regional 20 are those acknowledge by our judges as Asia’s powerhouses, whose operations not only enable, empower and connect enterprises across this vast region but also have a direct impact on economies this side of the world.
 
The Rising Stars are the 5 firms tipped most likely to lead technology development and deployment movements in the years to come. These are the game-changers, so to speak.
