We would like to invite you to a business development event in Central Asia, gathering 100+ top CIOs, thought-leading IDC analysts, and innovative vendors for two days of networking, learning, and fun. Discuss and debate the most pressing business and technology issues with your top clients and prospects in marvelous surroundings and one of the most attractive places in Central Asia nowadays. IDC’s analysts provide a compelling intellectual framework and guidance to power the interactive panels, workshops, roundtable debates, and networking sessions.
In one-on-one meetings with CIOs, leading companies will explore strategies and technologies to achieve the digital transformation.

Digital transformation is today's hottest topic for companies worldwide. Information technologies have become an integral part to many business processes, giving companies new opportunities for customer and partner interaction, and performance improvement.
Mobile, cloud, social, big data and business analytics technologies provide a foundation for working with data. New ways of dealing with information turn companies into "digital" ones, helping them create new business processes, innovation products and services, and change the status quo in their industries. Numerous examples show that companies with new mindsets and new business models are capable of disrupting the seemingly undisruptable industries. This process has a name, Uberization, after the famous company Uber and its mobile app. Such companies are the ones that drive the new digital economy. Whether to become a digital company is a wrong question. The right one would be "How to begin digital transformation and how to stay committed to it?"

Transition to a digital model of business is not only about choosing the right technologies. Strategic changes affect whole ecosystems of clients and partners. Very often, it is the external factors that push companies to adopt a digital model. Significant changes take place within companies, affecting their operations and employee engagement.

IDC CIO Summit 2016 provides a platform to discuss digital transformation processes taking place in Central Asia and all over the world.
