The 2019 edition of the Middle East CIO Summit showcased the results of the annual IDC CIO Summit survey that covers CIO priorities and their views of digital transformation adoption and associated challenges.
The survey was run prior to the Middle East CIO Summit 2019, which took place in Dubai on February 27 and 28. The following slides present the views of CIOs from various vertical markets in the Middle East.
"CIOs in the Middle East are being tasked to do more with less, including supporting innovation while sustaining operational efficiencies. When it comes to technology priorities, security remains top of mind, as it helps sustain the performance and availability of systems in a hypercompetitive era." — Research Director Megha Kumar, IDC Middle East, Turkey, and Africa
