As the sources of competitive advantage become even more connected to technology, the CIO’s contribution to the health and strategic direction of the business is critical like it has never been before. Their role is becoming increasingly complex – not only are CIOs expected to lead innovation efforts and enable technology, in many cases they are expected to achieve this in a cost-constrained environment, doing more with less and delivering top level information strategies.

With fast changing economic realities, European and global markets in the balance, IT decision-makers need to continuously evaluate and plan how they use IT to drive efficiency, profitability and customer satisfaction within their organisations.

iQuest’s CIO Summit is designed for those who have a strategic focus on their business and the role that technology plays in their company’s ability to remain competitive in the years ahead.

At the summit CIOs and IT decision-makers can get up to speed on critical business & technology issues ranging from the impact of local economic conditions to the most pressing global trends affecting IT in the enterprise. The summit is designed to help you become a more effective executive, opening doors to new perspectives to help you and your department move forward.Summitsessions are led by peers or industry experts speaking on the following issues:

* The changing role of the CIO: Is the CIO an IT expert or a business executive?

* How CIOs can drive business transformation? What are the key competencies for the CIO to deliver?

* How can CIOs better manage complexity in their organisation and continue to drive and sustain growth?

* Business Intelligence: Data & information management to achieve
competitive advantage

* CIO 2020: Future technology trends shaping the corporate landscape to 2020 & their impact on the CIO’s universe

* Managing IT to maximise ROI

* Cloud Computing – building bridges to new opportunities?

* Transforming IT into a highly valued business partner – Strategies to enable CIOs deliver real value to the business

The CIO Summit is a highly focused “C” level event for Ireland’s IT leaders. The summit is designed to appeal to anyone with a strategic focus on business and the role that technology plays in their organisation’s ability to remain competitive in the coming years.
