The CIO100 Awards has, over the last three decades, become a proud global tradition that extends from the United States to dozens of countries around the world, and is ranked by CEOs as among the top 10 most influential corporate scorecards for recognizing excellence in enterprise IT, to be produced by any media organization in the world.
The 13th India edition of CIO100 Symposium and Awards during September 6-7, 2018 at the national capital of Delhi, celebrated 100 outstanding Indian organizations and their digital architects.
The event turned the spotlight on key themes such as Daring to Delight, Scaling for Global Impact, Customer Innovation, Technology for Social Impact, and were chaired by eminent Indian and global thought leaders such as Avi Liran, Raymond Miranda, SBI Deputy MD Mrityunjay Mahapatra, to name a few.
Continuing the innovation momentum, the symposium also included sessions on future technologies such as artificial intelligence, advanced analytics and augmented reality.
This year’s CIO100 was a grand confluence that included IT leaders from across sectors to contribute to the overall event theme, Reimagineering India 2020 – an idea that has sought to harness the collective wisdom of India’s top technology minds in the journey to re-imagine and re-engineer a new India.
As a part of this, top IT leaders cutting across verticals took center stage in three CIO Think Tank sessions to share their thoughts on the challenges, opportunities and the future of enterprise digital presented by data, mobility and cloud.
The CIO100 concluded aptly with a very unique workshop anchored by Raymond Miranda, Story Expert, Educator, and CEO – Labora[s]tory. Using the power of storytelling, Miranda pushed the bar through for the digital leaders to reflect and arrive at answers for what it feels like to break the ritual, push past the loop of fear, explore the power of opposite thinking and navigate between knowledge, play and mastery.
