Competing in digitally impacted industries requires companies to increase the size and dumber of DX projects and accelerate the delivery of digitally enhanced offerings. Many organizations have already initiated digital transformation projects and have experienced notable benefits, along with some challenges. Integrating and multiplying innovations, building new corporate models in digital operations and communications, and rearchitecting the entire enterprise to operate like a digital-native company are key action points that should be on the agenda of CIOs today.

Global CIO Summit is a unique opportunity to discuss development strategies and to share experiences with global DX leaders and the CIOs of the largest companies and government organizations.
