The Business Conference for IT Leaders
IDC & IDG present the CIO Summit, an international conference series, running successfully for the past 7 years across 15 countries. Designed as a business conference for CIOs and other senior ICT executives, CIO Summit is where real-life issues meet real-life solutions, featuring some of the most influential minds from across the globe.
IT Means Business
The CIO Summit is a comprehensive forum to acquire knowledge and insights, enabling informed decisions, increased ROI and maximum productivity.
This years' theme, IT Means Business will facilitate ample exchange of ideas and throw light on challenges and solutions and business case studies.
The theme of the conference examines this statement from 2 dimensions:
1. The IT Department playing the role of a Business Driver:
Today, with both the Indian and global macro-economic scenario going through a period of unprecedented turbulence and uncertainty, the IT function is stepping up to deliver business value in a number of scenarios: mergers and acquisitions, enhanced customer experiences, risk management, supply chain optimisation and so on. What does the future look like and what is the evolution path?
2. The IT Department acting as a ‘business’:
Increasingly, CEOs and Boards demand measurable value delivery from IT. It is now recognized that IT departments need to change and bring to the table the same practices and disciplines which are powering external service providers. These are manifested in new service delivery and management processes, scorecards, service menus, transfer prices and dynamic organisational structures. How can the CIO make this transition successfully?
