July 10-12, 2013. Goa
The predictability of the enterprise now lies in its unpredictability. The enterprise of the today is a far cry from what it used to be a decade ago, and will be radically different from the one we know today. What we know though is that it will get even more complex, requiring blazingly fast response times to latch onto even the tiniest of business opportunity. This transformation of the enterprise has also meant an equally radical transformation of the CIO office, requiring the Chief Information Officer to be a thought leader, a forward thinker, a business-driven executive and sometimes even a disrupter. The 2013 theme of CIO Business Congress - Transformation to a Future Ready Enterprise - will feature a program that will recognize the need for CIOs to learn and understand new technology and changes that will affect the 21st century enterprise.
In a new world order that demands agility and nimbleness, what is an appropriate and cost-effective IT strategy? Is it crunching big data, embracing consumerization of IT, leveraging fluid data storage, greening your infrastructure, mobilizing your workforce, virtualizing your IT assets, cloud computing? Are these really the best options for coping with an ever changing enterprise? The CIO Business Congress (CBC) agenda will provide hard-nosed, actionable information and advice that executives urgently require.
The transformative wave sweeping the enterprise also requires CIOs to meet and engage in quality conversations with the world’s premium IT vendors and solution providers, an ecosystem that is rapidly moving towards orientating their solution portfolio to help and empower CIOs make that change, together. CIO Business Congress has been proud to associate itself with the best-of-breed vendors including Dell, Vodafone, APC by Schneider, Avaya, Akamai, Juniper Networks, EMC, SAP, IBM, Adobe, Amazon Web Services, VMware, CheckPoint Solutions, Citrix, Wipro, Amdocs, Nokia Siemens Networks, Thoughtworks, Netmagic, CtrlS, Teradata, among others.
