The UAE is rapidly evolving into a regional center for IT (Information Technology), marked by exceptionally high internet use rates, a tech-savvy, youthful population, and strong government support for IT infrastructure development. Given the swift pace, key players and decision makers, including Injazat Data Systems, will be converging in Abu Dhabi later this month to join international experts, academics and businesses in discussing major IT trends and issues at the BCS International IT Conference 2013.
Organized by BCS Middle East, The Chartered Institute for IT, the conference will be held from March 31 to April 1, 2013 at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr Hotel in Abu Dhabiunder the theme ‘Towards 21st Century Innovations’. The premier IT event will showcase 28 papers on Cyber Security, Health Informatics, Governance, Networks, Business and Industrial Applications and Social Media, Education and e-Learning. Prominent industry and academic figures from leading organizations such as Gartner, IBM and itSMF will be sharing their experiences and suggesting strategies for unleashing the full power of IT.
Injazat will be sponsoring an exclusive CIO panel discussion to be chaired by Ms. Sharon Taylor, the Chief Architect of the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL).Titled ‘The Digital CIO – Leading IT in the Digital Age’ the panel will gather Chief Information Officers and IT Managers to engage in lively discussions and debates on strategic CIO leadership amidst a rapidly changing digital landscape. With the UAE rolling out ambitious plans such as providing 90 per cent of government services electronically, Injazat notes that the time is ripe to begin a new wave of leadership and innovation to accelerate IT-enabled local and regional development.
“With the IT field evolving at lightning speed, we need to rethink the way we manage and innovate. Different parts of the world have different IT experiences and needs, and so the BCS conference is a welcome platform to share knowledge, consolidate expertise and set proper directions for the next wave of IT growth. As custodians of the IT domains of their respective organizations, CIOs and IT Managers are particularly hard-pressed to envision and deploy timely and efficient IT solutions, so it will be very interesting to hear from them about how they are coping with the numerous challenges posed by a perpetually transforming IT landscape,” said Ibrahim Lari, CEO of Injazat Data Systems.
High-profile speakers from the Arab community will also be sharing their perspectives during the latest BCS International IT Conference, headed by H.E. Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan. Conference organizer BCS connects experts from industry, academia and business to promote new thinking, education and knowledge sharing. It collaborates with relevant bodies in establishing good working practices, codes of conduct, skills frameworks and common standards.
