I am thrilled to formally kick off Forrester’s Summit for CIOs in Asia Pacific. Building on our global CIO Summit series, this year’s summits will take place in Sydney on August 27, Singapore on August 30 and Mumbai on September 3. This year’s theme is “Mastering Tomorrow’s Business Outcomes”, because more than ever, Asia Pacific CIOs need to understand the importance of moving beyond back-end IT to align to strategic business objectives and drive innovation.
When sharing my excitement about our summits, I am often asked what makes our events special. First and foremost, our attendees appreciate the fact that we bring together the most selective and senior group of CIOs in an intimate setting to connect. Rather than targeting the masses, our aim is to set a high threshold for the delegates that attend and then provide them with a world class experience through our thought leadership, research, tools and networking opportunities.
