ABOUT

The next wave of digital change is here. The new evolution of the internet is creating new worlds that bridge between reality and virtual reality.

Businesses will continue to play a more-than-ever important role in establishing safety and trust as well as defining the human experiences in these worlds. The notion of privacy, trust and bias is set to evolve as experiences cross between physical and virtual spaces.

This year’s CIO Workshop seeks to shed light on the importance of collective responsibility of the public and private sectors in managing and using the vast amount of data being collected today. Our speakers will touch on the implications of the data economy for Singapore, and how businesses can balance consumers’ privacy needs with innovation. They will also discuss the importance of establishing transparency and trust in handling consumer data in the metaverse as we move towards the world of tomorrow.

Board of Advisors

Our Board of Advisors comprises of ITMA representatives and other prominent IT leaders from both private and public sector organisations.

These individuals establish the focus of the workshop, pinpoint issues to address and invite visionaries and industry leaders to speak on these subjects.

CIO STORY

The CIO Workshop was created and piloted by Accenture USA in 1986. In 1988, Accenture Singapore brought the CIO Workshop to Singapore for the first time and jointly organized it in partnership with the Information Technology Management Association (ITMA). The ITMA was previously known as the Data Processing Management Association of Singapore. After more than two decades, Accenture has not only established deep expertise and experience working with CIOs, but has also developed a long-standing relationship with the ITMA in Singapore. The CIO Workshop has since become the longest-running annual forum where CIOs share best practices and discuss prevailing IT management issues. It is the only IT forum with a 30-year heritage.

In 2000, the bar was raised when the CIO Workshop took on a dual location format. Since then, delegates have had the opportunity to travel, learn from and network with their peers from another Asian city during the second leg of the workshop. Past destinations have included Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo and, most recently, Shanghai. Today, the CIO Workshop has become the de-facto forum for CIOs of large private and public organizations in Singapore. Delegates return annually to the event to benefit from the rich content and valuable peer networking opportunities.
