The economic slowdown has accelerated enterprise transformation and India is now shifting into focusing on newer strategies for Management and IT. Today, a CIO is no more restricted to handling IT issues; they are slowly becoming the Key Business Drivers. The role of a CIO has changed from being an information officer to being an innovative officer.

CIO Strategies Summit organized by SiliconIndia on June 23rd at the ITC Grand Central at Mumbai, focused on what the IT industry can assimilate next, Driving Innovation and Generating Business Growth, CIO Skill sets to meet Management Expectations and many such aspects.

What the IT industry can assimilate next?

What CEOs and the Board Expects from the CIO and IT Head? IT management can become saturated by supply-side thinking, about what the IT industry will offer next and how best to assimilate that. Our first panel instead looked at the demand side from the top down — what are boards and CEOs thinking and what business agenda must IT leaders deliver to? Venkat Iyer, Sr. Vice President - Information Technology, STAR India; Sunil Mehta, Sr. VP & Area Systems Director-Central Asia, JWT and Mukund Prasad, Director - Corporate Strategy, Business Excellence & Group CIO from Welspun Group spoke extensively about technology at the strategic level and what needs to be done as a result. Vivek Kale, Group CIO from Raymond laid stress on the key role of transformational CIO in Driving Innovation and Generating Business Growth in a reset world.

Gaurav Mohan, VP Channels & Head of Mumbai Region from Huawei addressed the audience on ‘Business drivers, Strategy and Solution for next generation Enterprise IT’
