For many years, IDC has been bringing together top CIOs and other decision-makers in the region to share their perspectives, under the guidance of IDC analysts, industry leaders, and inspiring thinkers and speakers. The variety of formats allow you to learn, share, and inspire others. Join us to discuss the most pressing business and technology issues. 

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 SEE Forum in Portoroz. 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?
