About the CIO Summit


The CIO Summit is the foremost gathering of CIOs and senior IT Executives in Asia, providing a number of platforms for sharing ideas, advisory services to better assist them in their jobs, as well as establishing a peer-to-peer community.

The event provides thought-provoking and actionable insights to CIOs and Senior IT Executives through a mix of presentations and case studies.  Technology heads will have the opportunity to hear about the latest global trends, learn from ICT best practices and get involved in general discussions with colleagues and peers during the dedicated networking breaks.

Once again the agenda and theme of the event will be drawn up in close consultation with a panel of Asia’s leading enterprise IT leaders assembled by Fairfax Business Media Asia and IDC Asia/Pacific. In short it’s a programme for CIO’s by CIOs.

Additional insight will be gleaned from IDC’s annual C-suite Barometer survey to help validate and drive key themes and topics based on levels of importance to not only the CIO, but also to key stakeholders across the enterprise.


IT Excellence Awards


As part of the partnership, Fairfax Business Media Asia (under its CIO Asia and MIS Asia titles) will once again work with IDC Asia/Pacific on IT Excellence Awards (ITX), an annual recognition programme honouring the enterprise IT leaders who have made the greatest strategic and operational contributions to their respective business organisations.

Being a CIO in the New Business World of Tech+ Transformation


As the business landscape and the technology businesses rely on have transformed in recent years, CIOs have become faced with new types of challenges that were not part of the job only a few years back. This year’s CIO Summit will explore the new types of challenges that CIOs are faced with as a result of 3rd platform technologies – or what IDC refers to as the 4 pillars of technology: Cloud, Big Data, Mobility and Social.

All these technologies are not only changing the technology solutions that CIOs need to implement, they are also fundamentally affecting the role of IT in the organisation, the tasks and responsibilities of the IT department, and the skill sets required by the CIO and the IT staff.

The Summit will explore some of the key areas that in particular affect CIOs today. Among these are issues such as:

  • Change management
  • Contract and relationship management
  • Talent and skill set management
  • Governance and policy management
