Message from President

Anoop Mathur

Tough times separate the mediocre leaders from the ones who are truly good, and it is these moments of truth and how India's ICT leaders face them in real-time that will make way for a better tomorrow post the crisis.

As the lock down eases in India, across the states and cities in different ways, shapes and forms there is a reason for cautious optimism.

Let me quote Vladimir Lenin who said that "There are decades where nothing happens, and there are weeks where decades happen."

The business economy has changed in the last 12 weeks and CIOs today are leading the digital transformation at an accelerated pace. The value of in person face to face meetings and interaction will never go away, but there are times when going virtual is a necessity.

We are a vibrant social community, but today we are forced into social distancing. There is an element of uncertainty but we must grow as we learn to navigate, adapt rapidly, and collaborate with each other and prepare for good days.

There is enough research to support that continuous engagements with the community leads to success. I would like to announce our first ever virtual, all-online CIO Power List live in July 2020.
