Six months have passed in the blink of an eye. The new council members have been working extremely hard behind the scenes. We have just completed a very successful 12th CIO Study Trip to Berlin, Vienna and Salzburg (1st to 9th September). Here's a short update on that trip:
We led a delegation of 34 members and 14 sponsors to Berlin, Vienna and Salzburg to visit companies such as Bosch, BASF, Deutsche Bahn, the Federal Statistical Office and the City of Linz. Let me share some of the feedback from the members who participated:
"My key take away is one word – Connections. Industrial 4.0 is really about connections, linking IoT devices and data to deliver connected services. The back office ICT delivery functions are also increasingly connected to support and enable agile and transformative digital experiences. This trip has been helpful for me in connecting the dots around digital transformation. It was also great to reconnect with old friends and making new friends." Cluster Director, GovTech
"Thank you all for such a memorable trip. It's more than "sound of music"… we had so much … sound of laughter, sound of knowledge and sound of merry making … cheers to the Symphony ITMA 2018!" Director, DNACapitals
"Learned a lot professionally from everyone. Gained a lot of friendship on the personal front. Great camaraderie, food and drinks. Will remember this trip for many years to come. Thanks to the organising committee for the wonderful experience!" SVP, GIC Pte Ltd
"Definitely a fantastic trip with a great mix of experience sharing, friendship and crazy fun. ITMA really rocks!" CIO, GovTech
Thanks to the spontaneity of our members, we had a great learning journey!
So what can you expect in the coming months ...
