Constellation Research’s BT 150 highlights business transformation leaders, including several from Philly

Tom Paine

Constellation Research, R “Ray” Wang’s leading Silicon Valley research and advisory firm to corporate technology users, publishes its Business Transformation 150 (BT150) once per year.

Constellation says the BT150 “is an elite list that recognizes the top global executives leading business transformation efforts in their organizations. Nominations from peers, industry influencers, technology vendors and analysts power the selection process each year.” 

One thing I like about the BT 150 is that its not an inward-looking list of Silicon Valley types.It covers a broad range of tech executives in a variety of industries across the nation and the globe..

Keep in mind that the list mostly covers CIOs who are responsible for technology users within an organization, as opposed to CTOs who developed customer facing products.
