CIO Leaders Summit Melbourne 2014
Organization: Media Corp International

Despite global economic uncertainty, IT spends in Australia remain steady and modest rises are in store for 2014. In contrast, Innovation and leadership quality remain the prime obstacles for Australian Businesses and IT Leaders. After the peak of this economic uncertainty ‘crisis mode’ has gradually begun to decline and new trends and rules have begun to emerge.
Globalisation, industrialisation and consumerisation, in addition to the forces of social networking, mobility and cloud continue to transform ‘life as we know it’. Businesses and IT decision makers are thus faced with the urgent reality of realigning their organisations with changing customer paradigms; should they wish to endure this new age.
As a result, the role of the CIO is now far removed from the traditional view point of simply attending to technical matters. Instead the CIO is seen attending to business issues and sharing the roles and responsibilities of their counterparts. It has been said that now is the time for CIO’s to take the lead. As more companies come to rely on technology in order to build customer loyalty and to achieve business goals the CIO is placed in the frontline as we enter this digital business future.
This brings us to the 2014 Australian CIO Leaders Summit. The Summit is invitation only and intended for Australia’s senior IT leaders to gather for a strategic one day event in order to exchange knowledge and interact as one over a range of important issues facing the industry. The one-to-one meetings with leading supplier companies will also provide a wealth of knowledge and offer opportunities for all attending delegates, while the informal networking sessions promise to create a unique interactive forum.
Our advisory council and organising committee are made up of some of the country’s most respected IT leaders who have created the most relevant and topical agenda for our attending audience. They have invited leading experts to provide sessions on site, allowing all attendees the opportunity to be informed by front-line executives that compress years of meaningful experience into a systematic, well-organised learning program.
Within the luxurious settings of the Novetel Hotel, Melbourne this networking and lead generation event presents a unique opportunity to develop meaningful and valuable business relations.
