Event Details

The future of business – be it in the public or private sector is under accelerated reconstruction across East Africa and beyond with IT innovation being the core architecture. The tech industry is exploding with new products and services in social collaboration tools, mobility, predictive analytics and the cloud.

The CIO 100 Awards is an acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence and therefore celebrates 100 organizations and the teams within them that are using IT in innovative ways to deliver business value by creating competitive advantage.



COMPELLING KEYNOTES & THEMES

The visionary insights shared during the symposium are lined to necessitate technology Executives to unify their C-suites around digital strategies that assure growth and greater success going forward.
