CIOs Meet at Saltmarch Media's Annual Business Conference in Goa

Bangalore, July 19, 2012: CIOs from across the globe have converged at the exclusive, Leela Kempinski in Goa from July 19-21st for the annual CIO Business Congress, produced by Saltmarch Media. Discussions at the three-day congress include implementing cost-effective IT strategies, meeting with international vendors, exchanging business terms and sealing deals through a program that recognizes the need for CIOs to learn and understand new technology and changes that will affect the 21st century enterprise.

CIOs are no strangers when it comes to adapting to ever increasing incremental changes, but are often left behind when it comes to embracing the larger alterations to technology. In a new world order that demands agility and nimbleness, what is an appropriate and cost-effective IT strategy? Is it storing big data, leveraging fluid data storage, greening your infrastructure, mobilizing your workforce, virtualizing your IT assets, cloud computing or hybrid cloud? Are these really the best options for coping with change? CIO Business Congress (CBC) provides hard-nosed, actionable information and advice that executives urgently require.

Among the high-profile clientele listed to speak the register includes an impressive line-up of the Indian industry’s top IT executives:

  • Ramnath Iyer, CIO of CRISIL
  • Rinosh Kurien, Enterprise Architect, UST Global
  • Meheriar Patel, Chief Technology Officer, Globus
  • Harsha Lal, Executive Director and GM - Dell India
  • Sunil Rawlani, Independent Strategic Change & Transformation Leader

Among the mix of networking exchanges, case studies, panels, and keynotes the list of presenters and solution providers grows even larger.

In an increasingly unfettered world led by Cloud, Mobile, Social and Big Data, the CIOs role in ensuring her organization's success is becoming even more linked to innovation, balancing risk, seizing the right opportunities and leveraging the best of breed technologies. In the opening power panel on 19th July, eminent speakers and been-there-done-that CIOs share their best practices on managing data for your organization's success, taking advantage of mobility and social tools, and advice on arriving at the right enterprise architecture.

Among other topics discussed at CBC central platform will be given to the long debated dilemma of CIO evolution within a company. This concept still remains ubiquitous as IT professionals continue to face difficulty establishing themselves as strategic partners at the highest levels of an organization. In a new world order that demands agility and nimbleness -- an order where big data crunching, fluid data storage, workforce mobility, IT asset virtualization and cloud data is commanding the CEOs strategic attention span more than ever, the time is now for the CIO to hop on that long drive with her CEO and position herself as a strategic partner for business transformation within the organization. The congress’ sessions help attendees understand the stick shifts, pedal pressure, navigation and much more so CIOs can formula drive to the top.

Dell, the Diamond sponsors within the event will present their products along side Citrix, Red Hat, Vodafone, VMware and a number of other sponsors. On the buy side, the top 100 pre-qualified, proactive buyers from India's enterprises will converge during the three day Congress to discuss changes within their companies and potentially procure products that will transform the way they do business.

CIOs and IT professionals need to adapt to the ever-changing face of technology. Saltmarch Media’s CIO Business Congress will allow these executives to implement those changes in an exclusive environment that provides decision-makers with the sellers needed to employ that change. No uncertainties. No unknowns. Just long lasting partnerships in the making.
