The Annual CIO Summit is the foremost gathering of CIOs and senior IT Executives in Asia. Executive Networks Media (ENM) and IDC Asia/Pacific (IDC) are proud to host this important and strategic event again in 2014.
A programme for CIOs by CIOs
When CIO Summit debuted last year, the main objective was to build a platform for meaningful exchange of ideas and for interaction between senior information executives, business leaders, technologists and technology providers, who all come together to discuss and to solve problems that affect their roles and their organisations.
Once again, the agenda and theme of the event have been 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 is 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.
Simply put, this event will provide CIO with thought-provoking and actionable insights through a mix of presentations, participatory table talks, panel discussions and case studies.
Transform to deliver
According to IDC, the IT industry has undergone multiple transformations, from its early days with mainframes which collectively is referred to the first computing platform, to a client server environment with PC and the Internet on the second platform. Through the last decade, we are now on the third platform with the rise of four disruptive technological pillars, namely cloud computing, mobile computing, big data analytics and social media.
The transition from the second to the third platform has so far been the most challenging for the majority of tech buyers and second platform vendors. Moreover, the third-platform disruptions are largely created by those born on the third platform-at the time when Internet has come to the forefront of all things IT. 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".
This year, CIO Summit has invited an outstanding global leader on innovation in financial services and mobility, to be a keynote speaker. Scott Bales is a thought leader on the intersection between cultural and behavioural changes with the technology innovations. His practical approach to understanding behaviour, technology and trends, make him a valuable contributor to in connecting your objectives with the market.
