Accelerating the Adoption of Ideal Technologies through Partnerships: CIOs for Continuity, Value Creation and Operational Excellence

June 2, 2020 • Cordis, Hong Kong

[COVID-19 UPDATE: To ensure our stakeholders’ wellbeing and in light of MOH’s suggestions to avoid major gatherings, we have decided to postpone the event to 2 June 2020. We will soon be contacting you with date/venue/agenda confirmations. For further assistance, please contact our Operations Manager, Lily via llee@questex.com]

Uncertain times call for unified approaches to technology, skills and resource planning and integration.

CIOs, as custodians of not only an operationally efficient IT, but also increasingly for the enterprise-transforming IT systems, are needed to fast track adoption of relevant technologies cost efficiently. Collaborating with CTOs, Chief Digital Officers and other C-suites including CFOs and CMOs is the way forward for the CIO to achieve the agile adoption.

Rather than working on tactical evaluation of technologies and their ROIs, it is now imperative for the CIO to interact with the right knowledge sources, hire and train them, develop safe enterprise infrastructure and secure business continuity through valuable stakeholder buy-ins.

In its 10th year, Questex's CIO Leadership Forum in Hong Kong will focus on acquiring practical insights from leading CIOs to help us understand:

Join over 160+ CIOs, IT Directors, CTOs, CISOs, VP's, Heads and Directors of Digital Transformation, Data & Security, Analytics, at the 10th CIO Leadership Forum this April in Hong Kong.

Who Should Attend:

CIOs, CTOs, CDOs, CISOs, VP's, Heads and Directors of Digital Transformation, IT Architects, IT Solutions, Data & Security, Analytics, Digital Business Development, Commercial, and anyone who is involved in Driving Technology-Led Business Solution within the organization.
