“The Premier 100 awards program showcases the exceptional work of a dedicated group of technology-savvy business leaders who are driving huge change in their organizations through IT,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “Every day, these exemplary business leaders make strategic technology decisions that track to their organizations' top priorities. These 100 men and women keep a keen eye on the changing landscape of political, economic, regulatory and technology trends that are driving significant shifts in IT. We are very pleased to recognize the leadership and honor the achievements of the 2013 Premier 100 honorees.”
“As CTO, Imran provides visible leadership within NTT DATA and the technology community, while actively working with our clients to help them define both their business and technology strategies,” said John McCain, President and CEO of NTT DATA, Inc. “Imran’s recognition as a Premier 100 IT Leader acknowledges and reinforces his deep expertise and abilities as an innovative leader – a well deserved recognition.”
Sayeed leads the Applications Development and Management practice as well as the innovation and development of technology for NTT DATA, Inc.
