Facing the challenge, leading the change
The business demands on IT are increasing globally. Business executives expect the CIO and the IT organization to play a significant role in controlling costs, improving business processes, and raising workforce performance over and beyond building and delivering cost effective, reliable infrastructure and application services.
To maximize their contribution to business success, CIOs must learn not only how to manage an effective IT organization, but also to develop their understanding of business expectations and how IT can contribute accordingly.
Despite a global economic slowdown, IT is booming in India, with no signs of deceleration. IT spending in India is set to rise to $110B by 2012. Relative to GDP, this is set to grow from 7.7% in 2007 to 9.5% in 2012. There are no doubt challenging times ahead globally, but India's rising as a major powerhouse will create new opportunities for businesses throughout the region. As India's IT leaders, you will be responsible for making the right decisions in IT investments to meet business expectations.
How do you know which investments to make? Standing still is not an option if you are going to improve business processes, attract and retaining customers and innovate new products or services.
The 3rd Annual Gartner India CIO Summit will direct CIOs and business leaders on the investments required to link business and IT strategies and deliver projects that enable growth. Over two days, Gartner's leading analysts will provide the insight and guidance to identify and meet the growing business demands you face through a series of hard-hitting keynotes, strategic and tactical presentations, roundtable discussion forums and private one-on-one consultations.
