The World CIO 200 Summit gathers global IT decision-makers and solution providers at a unique platform. The providers and the decision-makers of the industry meet under one roof as technology is now a crucial factor for strategic decision making than ever before.
In the 2020 edition of the summit, there were several nominations received before the event, which were evaluated by a global jury. Subsequently, 200 top CIOs were shortlisted and nominated for the DX Inspire Awards 2020. The 21 shortlisted CIOs for the summit included Pakistanis as well.
Out of top CIOs, 20 were able to win the DX inspire awards, which included two from Pakistan — General Manager Information Technology of Muller and Phipps Pakistan Pvt Ltd Iftikhar Arif and Global Chief Information Officer of Aga Khan Universities and Hospitals Russel Withers.
It’s pertinent to say right here that there are 26 international locations related to The World CIO 200 Summit, and Pakistan participated for the second time within the summit.
“This is indeed a moment of pride for Pakistan that capable CIOs are not only available in the private sector but also the public sector to lead the digital transformation journey for their organisations,” an announcement issued after the occasion stated.
PSEB and Geo Information performed an important function in making Pakistan’s chapter profitable, the assertion famous.
