"Our vision for the 'End of Software' has never wavered," said Benioff. "Our customers worldwide are building applications and running their businesses in the cloud. It's an honor to be recognized by InternetNews.com for that vision and our customers' success."

Editors and judges at InternetNews.com commended Benioff for having the vision and making the leap in 1999 to start a company that championed the benefits of Software as a Service. He was given accolades for deepening the company's partnership with Google, and accelerating the company's Platform as a Service approach with Force.com. According to InternetNews.com, "with the company on track for a $1 billion year, Benioff is showing how a vision launched at the height of the dot-com boom is bearing fruit."

The InternetNews.com CEO Vision Awards are designed to honor CEOs who impact the industry on "the strength of clear vision" and are "executing on that vision." Criteria such as innovation, accomplishments, and year-over-year performance were evaluated in the ranking. Most importantly, according to InternetNews.com, "how and why (the CEO) made that vision happen carried the most weight."
