TECHNOLOGY SUMMIT DRAWS BIG PLAYERS

AS the scope of business technology transforms at an unprecedented rate and creates enormous pressure for chief information officers (CIOs), turning challenges into opportunities is the key focus of the NG CIO Summit Australia 2011.

Top information technology (IT) executives from the Australasia’s biggest companies will converge on the Gold Coast in early April for the summit, including ANZ Bank, Coca-Cola Amatil, Colliers International, Foxtel, Jetstar, QBE Insurance, Telstra and many more.

The major discussion will focus on the crucial role of IT for any organisation in gaining a competitive advantage over the next few years.

On the global scale, Australia’s IT sector is in an enviable position with significantly stronger forecasted growth compared to other western nations. General spend in the sector is expected to exceed four per cent growth while some specific technologies such as CRM and virtualisation will boom to more than 15 per cent sales growth.

2011 is seen by many CIOs as an opportunity to streamline IT practices, optimise infrastructure and foster potential growth and innovation strategies. The National Broadband Network (NBN) may be a controversial initiative, but there is little doubt that opportunities will abound for regional organisations looking to introduce platforms of innovation.

The 2011 CIO Australia Summit is designed specifically to assist forward-thinking CIOs to transform and achieve this growth. The summit will also bring together business professionals with solution providers to discuss how investing in innovative technology can positively impact the bottom line.

The NG CIO Summit Australia takes place at the Sheraton Mirage, Gold Coast from April 6-8.

The event will provide the communication and ideal framework for new business relationships to flourish. More info at: ngcioaustralia.com.au
