The 23rd Chief Information Officer Workshop, jointly organized by Accenture and the Information Technology Management Association (ITMA), is an annual gathering of the most senior CIOs from large private and public organizations in the region. Considered the de facto CIO forum, many participants return year after year to benefit from the rich content and valuable networking opportunities.
Over its 23 year history, the CIO Workshop has gathered IT leaders in Singapore and the region to exchange views on the opportunities and challenges that has shaped the industry. Recent workshops in Beijing, Taiwan, Japan, Korea and Hong Kong have provided wonderful backdrops for productive dialogues on key issues impacting the business and IT landscape.
The CIO Workshop is supported by a Board of Advisors (BOA) comprising the ITMA president and other prominent IT leaders and CIOs from various industries and private or public organizations. This select group of individuals establishes the focus of the workshop, pinpoints issues to address and targets visionaries and industry leaders to speak to these subjects.
