Join our next CIO Edge Experience

13-14 September 2018 in Sydney

Ideas are worth nothing unless executed. They are just a multiplier. Execution is worth millions.” – Steve Jobs

The Australasian CIO community understands the concepts, the technology, and the relentless pace of change. Enough of the theory. Now is the time for the CIO to step into action and help move the needle from Strategy to ExecutionBut how?

Your executives dream big – but often the ambition does not come with specifics. Vision alone is not adequate for the CIO to execute on the strategic plan. Consequently, many CIOs struggle. So how can you ensure that you translate the strategy to execution? How do you guarantee flawless delivery?

This September, ADAPT takes the CIO Edge delegation on a journey towards execution; on the challenge and promise of multi-layered IT. We will highlight the pathways to transformation and digital ecosystems, delivering on ITaaS, and leveraging AI.

Workshops also confront the reality of today’s organisational roadblocks and resistors: IT sprawl, Employee Experience, and Cloud migration – and how to overcome them to execute on your organisation’s strategic vision.

Meaningful dialogues
through the 1-1 meetings

A small number of senior executives from leading and alternative suppliers are onsite. They’re not there for a 1-way ear bashing, but for 2-way personalised dialogue to learn more about your challenges and concerns, and to discuss how
they may help.

“Whether its inspiration or confirmation, collaboration or confabulation, CIO Edge will deliver. It’s a must.”

EGM, Transformation – Tandem Corp

“A rare opportunity to talk to a range of senior people with trust, so it’s quite unique. So there’s no similar event like it anywhere here in Australia… It’s about problem solving, and having the opportunity to listen and learn about different perspectives.”

Director ACS Victoria – Australian Computer Society

“CIO Edge continues to deliver a balanced portfolio of education, collaboration and professional interaction with peers with mind challenging presentations in a personable environment.”

Managing Director, Vertiv

Why invest in the CIO Edge Experience?


Come face-to-face with
your target market

Nothing is as powerful as meeting face-to-face, but time poor, key decision makers, are incredibly hard to access. For 6 years ADAPT has put people and organisations in unique and powerful positions of advantage via proven events and intelligent matchmaking platforms.


Reduce sales inefficiencies

We concentrate weeks of meetings and travel costs into just two days delivering deep sales efficiency for your executive team, as well as shortening sales cycles and creating new revenue opportunities. We also have experienced staff and analysts in house able to assist Strategic Partners with every aspect of their Sales and Marketing strategies for increased returns and business growth.


Insight and timing
is everything

Traditional sales cycles are inefficient and laborious. A key challenge for solution providers is to meet the right decision makers when they plan to invest.
ADAPT’s deep customer knowledge and survey data on Australian organisations is shared with all Strategic Partners to discover and highlight the most
suited opportunities, including their 6-24 month investment priorities
and incumbent suppliers.


Intelligent Matching

To connect the right people at the right time for the right reason, we bring stakeholders together at CIO event based on a qualified data-driven match making system. Qualified VIPs with specific investment plans and business drivers are matched to strategic partners with aligned core capabilities, the capacity to deliver, ability to service, and desire to grow.
