  • Last year's rank: 1
In her second year as CEO, Rometty is sinking IBM's resources into commercializing Watson, the Jeopardy-playing supercomputer. Rometty believes that Watson, a machine that can not only crunch numbers but also learn things, represents new sales opportunities for Big Blue. She's also pushing into underserved markets—Africa, for example—and picking up new customers in marketing and finance, to keep the 102-year-old tech company ahead of the competition.
