IDC is proud to announce the 16th edition of the annual Middle East CIO Summit, which will be held on February 22-23, 2023 in Dubai’s iconic Atlantis, The Palm. This Summit will focus on the concept of the Digital Economy and its impact on the region, as well as how organizations can leverage infrastructure, data, and skills alongside critical technology enablers such as 5G, the cloud, and AI to set themselves apart in an increasingly competitive market.
The concept of the Digital Economy has gained significant prominence over the last few years, and the rate of digital adoption is rapidly increasing across the Middle East region as organizations adapt their business models to the changing characteristics and demands of their customers. Mobile broadband penetration in GCC countries has reached 100%, more than 50% of consumers in the region shop online, and in the UAE, 80% of digital payments are now contactless.
Jyoti Lalchandani, IDC’s group vice president and regional managing director for the Middle East, Türkiye, and Africa, says: “Today, almost every country in the region has a cohesive national vision for a digital economy that focuses on driving local economic value, employment creation, and social development by reaching the underserved. Whether it is accessing essential government services, purchasing products on digital platforms, or the shift to online learning and working, the impact of this mass transition to digital is evident everywhere.“
At the Summit, attendees will have the opportunity to learn from the industry’s top experts and gain invaluable insights through in-depth discussions and interactive sessions. They will also discover best practices for successfully re-inventing their business models, creating new customer experiences, and driving innovation with their partners.
This event promises to be a great opportunity for CIOs, CTOs, and other IT executives from across the Middle East to learn from each other, network, and gain insights that will benefit their organizations.
