Summit Highlights

Even as companies grapple with the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is already clear that CIOs are playing a central role in navigating the crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic is first and foremost a human tragedy, and technology is on the front lines of this crisis. Many of the changes reshaping how we work and live - from employees working remotely to consumers shifting their shopping online - rely on technology. And because technology ties so much of every company together, CIOs have a unique view into what’s really going on and how to manage it.  The most successful organizations take risks in "the turns", those places in the enterprise journey where others slow down.


Carrying the theme of “Preparing To Win In The Turns’’, this premier annual CIO event targeting 200+ CIOs, CDOs, CISOs, C-level delegates and IT decision makers dedicates in optimizing delegates’ digital and business information technology management with a new strategic outlook and equips CIOs and CXOs with insight into how they should prepare and lead in the turns, building agility into systems, processes, and decision-making, both within their teams and among their peers. We will look at a number of key themes, including:


  • Winning in the Turns: Actions for the CIO

  • CIO Insights Panel One: Responding to COVID-19: Implications of Remote Work

  • Leading Digital Innovations through Uncertainties: 2021 and Beyond

  • Going Mobile: Mobility as a Driver of Enterprise  Transformation

  • Aligning and Implementing Native Cloud Strategies to Power IT Transformation

  • Disrupt Or Be Disrupted By AI

  • Leveraging Infrastructure-as-Code to embed Zero Trust Security and Enable Digital Transformation

  • The CIO’s mission: Building the Post-Pandemic Digital Enterprise

  • The CIO Of 2025: Driving Fundamental Enterprise Change

  • Cybersecurity and The Customer Experience: The Perfect Combination

  • Addressing Multicloud Security Considerations for the Modern Enterprise

  • What Makes a Great Digital Experience?

  • Securing The Future of Work with Cyber AI

  • Cybersecurity and the New CISO
