The significant acceleration of digital agendas over the past two years has resulted in a continuously changing and increasingly digitally-driven world. As Qatar prepares to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, unprecedented technological innovations within the country have reached all-time high. In fact, 2022 IDC research suggests that 57% of Qatari organizations have introduced new digital products and services, while 70% have increased cost efficiencies through the digitalization of operations.
CIOs in Qatar have rapidly digitalized operations and enabled new digital business models and ecosystem partnerships for the tournament and beyond. They have carried out widespread technology implementations, ranging from enabling cloud operational excellence and developing agile infrastructure to supporting application modernization, process automation, and security. Leveraging the FIFA World Cup as a catalyst to drive its digital economy and expand its ICT ecosystem, Qatar is ideally positioned to attract investments in emerging industries and drive innovation while showcasing itself as a digital-first country.
The 2022 edition of the IDC Qatar CIO Summit will explore the increasing pace of innovation in Qatar and examine the country’s evolving technology landscape. It will also reveal how technological innovation has created a more competitive, diversified, and productive ICT sector that can meet the demands of the country’s rising digital economy.
