Almost 60% of companies in the CEE region have not yet formed a digital transformation (DX) strategy, while the main goal for those that have is to improve automation and efficiency. Main drivers for DX initiatives in CEE companies include the adoption of new technologies used by partners and customers, the emergence of new business models, and — obviously — staying competitive in their market.

Thanks to you and your team for organizing an excellent and valuable event. Great job, and I look forward to collaborating again in the near future.
Joshua Burke, Commercial Attaché, U.S. Embassy, Bucharest

I was really impressed on how the Forum was organised. Everything was extremely well prepared, also from the content point of view. Bottom line, one of the best events I’ve participated at.
Radu Brasoveanu, CTO, Deutsche Bank Technology Center

I really appreciate your perfect organization and the great atmosphere at the event itself.
Tobias Hollwarth, President, Eurocloud Europe

Thanks to you and your team for organizing an excellent and valuable event. Great job, and I look forward to collaborating again in the near future.
Ricki Koinig, Global Head Of IT Strategy and Business Integration, OMV AG

Thanks for the invitation to CIO Forum 2017. It was certainly an event with more value added, particularly considering the inflation of local events. I also hope that my presence was in line with your expectations. Thanks again!
Eduard Bîsceanu, CISO, UniCredit Bank

I enjoyed the event and appreciated its organization, selection of speakers, and guests. The keynotes were topical, informative, and presented very openly without any vendor bias but as objective reports and references about the given product, solution, or project and its benefits, downsides, and risks. For me, the most valuable element was being part of an open, professional discussion platform where people shared experience, presented news and trends, identified dead-end tracks, and so on.
Marek Růžička, Chief Operations Officer, O2

It was my greatest pleasure to be part of such a well-managed event! I will be honored to continue as a member of the IDC CIO Forum Content Board. Thank you for the opportunity to spend a very productive day in such a high-level community of my peers.
Luboš Chládek, Member of the Board of Directors, ČEZ ICT Services

Honestly, I feared that the event will be mostly of an academic nature, but I was pleasantly surprised how practical and informative were the sessions I attended, and how honest the discussions among panelists were. Although most of the topics were covering primarily commercial entities, challenges discussed and the cases presented were very relevant for me as a public administration representative.
Petr Pavlinec, CIO, Krajský úřad, Kraj Vysočina

The IDC CIO Forum is an exclusive, high-level event that provides opportunities for CIOs to network with peers and discuss shared opportunities and challenges. C-level counterparts from a range of industries exchanged insights about their management experiences and offered practical guidance on how to overcome obstacles and implement change. The format of the event encouraged contacts and some friendships were created. The well-balanced program included real-life case studies and presentations from technology providers and seasoned experts on the latest industry advances.
Radek Hájek, Digital Officer, ČSOB
