To create our inaugural 25 Top Information Manager list, we asked our staff, our contributors and trusted experts in the field to tell us who they thought were among today's best information managers and people to watch in 2010.

The nominations ran the gamut from CIOs to architects to program managers to specialists, and their work crosses many domains of the IM field. We vetted our submissions, cut it to 38 finalists and interviewed each person who appears on the final list below. We found every one to be a savvy leader and a game changer in their organization - truly among the best information managers working today.
