From 22-24 June 2020, the European edition of our CIO Insight Summit brought together senior IT decision-makers and business leaders from across the continent at the wonderful Royal Turnberry Hotel in Ayrshire, Scotland, to share their views on how to tackle the biggest challenges in tech today.
The summit program focused on key themes such as: innovation and digitalisation: separating from the pack; the CIO forecast: emerging technologies and trends to integrate into your strategy; and infrastructure and operations: the mix of strategic, tactical and organisational challenges in 2020.
From case studies that lift the lid on operations inside best-in-class organisations, to workshops and collaborative sessions that focus on real challenges and future technology innovations, to one-to-one meetings with industry peers offering practical advice tailored to your specific needs, the summit provides you with everything you need to implement your key projects more effectively.
I can see ways of doing things that might increase the speed of our delivery maybe by as much as three months.
The mix of workshops, roundtables and qualified vendor meetings was just right. The organisation by GDS was first class. If GDS ran the UK’s train companies then the trains would always be on time. Excellent hosting and direction by GDS. A high quality selection of delegates, speakers and sponsors.
It’s different from other conferences; I felt that I was listened to and the priorities for meetings were based on what I need and what I will need in the future.
It’s good to have the opportunity to ‘look behind’ the company logo and hear what the real challenges are and how much we all have in common.
Every GDS Summit has one stated aim: to help attending executives implement their key projects more effectively. We do this by developing an in-depth understanding of those executives' project needs, the business outcomes they want to achieve, and the challenges they face in terms of hitting those goals.
