Bangalore: If you happened to look up the statistics of women CIO’s from time to time, you’d have noticed that not more than a mere nine percent of CIOs were female. But men aren’t the cause for this, according to Martha Heller, author of forthcoming book "The CIO Paradox",  college women hardly gravitate to technology related fields, and the culture of many IT organizations doesn’t appeal to women either.  But fortunately for the women who do show interest, the sky is limit. And here are some of the most remarkable women filling in the positions of CIO’s in some of the top companies today.

Annie Mathew holds the position of CIO in Mother Dairy. Before joining Mother Dairy in 2005, Mathew worked for Bharat Shell and brought in Sun-Systems ERP across every location. Mathew played a pivotal role in deploying Shell CRM for Shell Chemicals. She also led implementation of first data warehouse in Bharat Shellduring 1998.



Adriana Karaboutis: Dell appointed Karaboutis as VP & Global CIO. Most recently, Karaboutis  served as VP of IT at Dell. While she was VP, Karaboutis supported product groups, manufacturing, procurement, and supply chain operations. Prior to joining Dell in 2010, Karaboutis worked for the Global Manufacturing & Labor Relations Information Officer at General Motors and also previously held executive positions at Ford. She is a former President of the Michigan Council of Women in Technology.

Amrita Gangotra is the CIO of Mobility & Airtel IT Operations. Gangotra has over nineteen years of experience in IT across FMCG, telecom and IT industries. She joined Bharti in 2002 as the VP for solutions engagement of mobile business. In her current role, Gangotra is responsible for business engagement and deliverables to the business from the IT factory for mobile business.

During her extensive career, Gaangotra has been awarded several of the most prestigious awards in her field category. Some of them include: Gold CIO award by the CIOL (Cyber India Online, Leading IT portal) and Dataquest (Leading IT magazine) as well as the runner up for the best CIO by CSI-KPIT Cummins during 2004.

Some of the previous companies Gangotra served include Nestle, HCL and Allen Bradley. Gangora also has excelled in process optimization, re-engineering through automation as well as consultancy across business areas.
