Ongoing change means ongoing business alignment, searching for new opportunities, restructuring teams, and looking for the best solutions. That is why IDC continues to offer various platforms to help CIOs and business leaders embrace change. We strongly believe that sharing thoughts onsite, brainstorming with peers, and being inspired by practical examples is the best way to reflect and refuel the organizational machine.

Therefore, we would like to invite you to the IDC Central Asia CIO Summit in Almaty. The forum is designed to respond to the most thought-provoking current questions, such as: What are the real opportunities digital transformation brings? Who should initiate and manage change in the organization? And, beyond aligning infrastructure and processes with business goals, how can IT provide support on this journey?

IDC Central Asia CIO Summit 2016

Last year we brainstormed about how to embrace the digital forces that are reshaping industry and disrupting old models, including Internet of Things, Big Data, Cloud, Mobility, and who is best placed to wrestle with the Minotaur – the Chief Information Officer, Innovation Officer, or Digital Officer. Watch our 3 minute executive cut and get a glimpse.

We Make You Part of This Trend

Mobility, Big Data, cloud, and social technologies have changed every aspect of the way customers are interacting, relating to their brands, and expecting their digital and physical lives to interact seamlessly as one. The focus on customer experience has already started disrupting traditional business models, and, with the advent of the next IoT generation, this disruption will continue to impact retailers, manufacturers, banking, healthcare, and government services.
