SAN FRANCISCO — Samsara Inc. (“Samsara”) (NYSE: IOT), the pioneer of the Connected Operations™ Cloud, today announced it has been named a CIO 100 Award winner. For more than 30 years, the CIO 100 Awards have recognized innovative organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of strategic and operational excellence in IT.
“This year’s class of award winners have distinguished themselves with many groundbreaking projects using AI, quantum computing, facial recognition, analytics, and more,” said Anne McCrory, Group Vice President, Customer Experience and Operations, Events, at Foundry and the chair of the 2023 CIO awards programs. “Their innovations improve customer experiences, track sustainability and reduce risk, and have novel applications across industries, from pharma and health care to manufacturing, retail, software, and more. We look forward to highlighting their great accomplishments at the CIO 100 Symposium & Awards in August.”
With a convergence happening between business strategy and technology strategy across most companies, the role of the CIO and their organization has become increasingly central.

As a result, the team now runs products and services that power the operations of the company – from go-to-market systems to finance to supply chain – becoming an integral pillar of Samsara’s scale and business impact in today’s market.
“I’m incredibly proud of the work our team has done to essentially overhaul the IT function and set the company on a path for scale,” said Franchetti. “This was a complex yet crucial undertaking driven by alignment to our company vision of connecting physical operations for the future. Receiving a CIO 100 Award demonstrates the tangible impact this work has had on both Samsara and the solutions we’re able to provide for our customers.”
