Dear ITMA Members,

We organized the inaugural CIO Study Trip to the Silicon Valley in 2006, and the response was overwhelming. We visited technology giants such as eBay, Symantec, Oracle, Accenture and CISCO.

During our second study trip in 2007, around 20+ ITMA members visited great global companies based in New York. The participants gained significant insights into the IT operations of companies such as IBM, Colgate, New York Stock Exchange, Warner Music and JP Morgan.

Our 3rd study trip was to Paris, Frankfurt and Basel and we visited great companies head quartered in Europe. Last year we went to Copenhagen, Oslo and Goteborg, and visited companies such as Volvo, Ministry of Taxation (Denmark), Norwegian Government, etc.

In all of these trips, the participants had very fruitful and interesting interactions with the CIOs of these global companies. One of the CIOs who took part in the trip hailed it as “one of the best learning experiences”. The post trip survey result shows that 100% of the participants were “very satisfied” with the trip. The opportunity to network with fellow CIOs and Senior IT Management during the trip was highlighted by the participants as one of key benefits of the trip.

The 5th ITMA CIO Study trip is now open for registration!
Fee: S$4,000

The theme for this year's study trip is "Innovations in the Brave New World". We plan to visit companies in USA (Houston and Florida) and learn from their experiences in dealing with and taking advantages of the new technologies and social media. This trip is promised to be as exciting, educational and fun as the previous 4 trips. You will see first-hand how organizations tackle cyber security issues, make use of social media to achieve organizational goals, leverage on virtualization to save costs, adopt business service management for cloud implementation, etc.
