Technology in the modern economy is developing, mutating, and adapting at a staggering rate, and fundamentally changing the way any business operates. With wider access to new and emerging technologies, marketplaces-global, national, regional, or even local-are becoming increasingly competitive. In this ever-evolving scenario, thought leadership is emerging as an important strategy for growth, significantly impacting business models, the marketplace, consumers, and employees.

Leading this change are a select few pioneering CIOs and ICT Leaders, blazing new paths, and shaping the outcome of disruptive technologies. These ICT leaders are reinventing industries and creating a new value system, driven by IT now sitting at the centre of innovation for business.
