CIODAY is the annual network event for digital decision-makers in business, government, and everything in between. Not necessarily about the latest tech, this event brings together the community of CIOs, CDOs, and CTOs to share ideas, use cases, and best practices in an informal but luxurious setting. And, of course, we’ll announce the CIO of the Year 2023 and the winner of the Tech Hero Award.
This year’s theme is From tech to impact in the AI era. In the years to come, we will use digital solutions and data more than ever to create things, personalize experiences, and operate more appropriately and securely. For CIOs, CTOs, CDOs, and other tech leaders, the shift is noticeable: from primarily achieving the right technological conditions to generating tangible business results. During CIODAY we will take a deeper look at emerging intelligent, business-focused capabilities. Based on the principle that these must be properly aligned with technological, operational and organizational realities. And with ethical guardrails in place to avoid accidents. Only then can you fulfill a lasting impact and long-term value for your organization.
