Bangalore: Technology has been called the gamechanger of this millenium, and from an organizational perspective; it has changed the way every enterprise functions. Every organization has realized the importance of technology, and has decided to increase the budget for IT. Gartner claims that worldwide enterprise IT spending is predicted to be a total of $2.679 trillion in 2013, a 2.5 percent increase over projected 2012 spending of $2.603 trillion.

This means that the CIO has been given a big role and also that the expectations from him are high. To sum it up succinctly, a CIO would have to face more pressure to show how he has invested wisely in the most apt technology. To boost his organization or help it survive in the cut throat competition, an IT exec would have to also decide where to expend his efforts.

The CIO Leadership Forum, Bangalore focuses on an interactive experience to facilitate an open flow of ideas and gain strategic insights from renowned CIOs of established organizations.
