About the CIO Summit


Jointly organised by Executive Networks Media (ENM) and IDC Asia/Pacific (IDC), the Annual CIO Summit is the foremost gathering of CIOs and senior IT Executives in Asia.

The event provides CIO with thought provoking and actionable insights through a mix of presentations and case studies.

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 Executive Networks Media 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.


Transform to Deliver the New Value of I.T.


The IT industry has undergone multiple transformations, from its early days with mainframes on the 1st platform to a client server environment with PC and the Internet on the 2nd platform. We are now on the 3rd platform with the rise of 4 disruptive pillars, cloud, mobile, big data analytics and social. The transition from the 2nd to the 3rd platform has so far been the most challenging for the majority of tech buyers and 2nd platform vendors. 3rd platform disruptions are largely created by those born on the 3rd platform. Their quest for innovation has led to the convergence and collision of IT and other industries. The innovations are also creating new business, operating and consumption models in the marketplace.

These disruptions are pushing many to seek transformations to create new markets and opportunities, thus the drive to “Transform to Deliver the New Value of IT”

At this year’s CIO Summit, IDC with Executive Networks Media and our partners (both suppliers and early users/adopters) will be showcasing the how and the where tech users (businesses, governments and consumers) can take IT to the next level, delivering the value to succeed in the new marketplace.
