In a world ruled by digital, IT is revolutionizing businesses both online and offline. In keeping pace with this trend, EMC is participating at the upcoming edition of the IDC CIO Summit at the Four Seasons Hotel in Riyadh, from the 8th to the 9th of September. Held under the theme, “Where IT Meets Business”, the event brings together over 200 of the most prominent CIOs and IT leaders from across the Kingdom, to exchange insights and best practices on the application of third platform technologies to transform business.
In a recent study conducted by Institute for the Future and Vanson Bourne,
- 62% of respondents in the UAE and KSA see digital technologies changing the buying behavior of consumers, allowing them easier and unlimited access to information.
- 63% of respondents in the UAE and Saudi Arabia believed that having access to relevant information and insights would improve decision-making.

In order to stay competitive, businesses must understand this transition to mobile, social, cloud and big data technologies. With the experienced insight of Kamal Othman, EMC’s Regional Director of the Public Sector, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the technologies that can help CIOs effectively balance managing risks, reducing costs and driving growth through digitization.
