Budget cuts, "cloud" everything, data getting "bigger", more stakeholders than ever before and a rapidly evolving competitive landscape – the CIO’s world is not getting simpler. With CIOs striving to align IT objectives with those of the wider business and endeavouring to enhance business efficiency and agility, IDC’s CIO Summit 2013 will focus on a pressing theme – Seize the Moment: Transform, Innovate, and Collaborate. What are the strategies that the business-savvy CIO needs to consider? How they can demonstrate greater value to the business user and thereby increase the profile of IT in the boardroom?

Building on 5 years of successful IDC CIO Summits in the Middle East and Africa, IDC is now launching its CIO Summit Series in Europe. CIO Summit event provides thought provoking and actionable insights to CIOs and Senior ICT Executives through a mix of end user presentations and case studies giving CIOs the opportunity to hear about the latest global trends, learn from ICT best practices and become involved in general discussions with colleagues and peers during the dedicated networking breaks.

CIO Summit Value Proposition

  • Transform Remarkable Ideas into Executable Plans

The generation and dissemination of ideas is critical. But as an executive, your end goal is solving a problem or creating a new opportunity.

  • Stretch Your Mind Beyond Accepted Definition of Possible

The daily grind requires the brain to be mostly analytical, to conform with the 'one right answer' requirements of business. But breakthrough innovations come from those who take the path less travelled.

  • Evaluate Alternative Approaches to Established Conventions

Business as usual no longer exists. Examine current assumptions and explore the possibilities outside them. Compare and contrast how companies have achieved success in different ways, with different models, and different mind sets.
