CIO Edge Experience

CIO13_Header_Website

“The only sustainable advantage you can have over others is Agility… Nothing else is sustainable, everything else you create, somebody else will replicate.” – Jeff Bezos

Our local community of CIOs agree the most important business outcome IT can deliver is competitive advantage via Agility.

IT is expected to help businesses capitalise on new digital capabilities through connectivity, advanced analytics, automation, and a constantly accelerated release of great apps. The organisation can then build deeper relationships with customers, make processes more efficient, make better decisions, and launch new operating and business models.

ADAPT CIO Edge in February will deliver practical advice from our CIOs and knowledge partners MIT, McKinsey, Forrester, Ovum, IBRS, and TRA showing the actions you need to take today as a modern CIO.

ADAPT’s C-level benchmarking of consistent local statistics with MIT and McKinsey will also show answers from masses of real data, delivered directly to the country’s top CIOs at February’s CIO Edge event.

Leading this discussion is Peter Weill, Chairman of MIT CISR (who was outstanding at our Feb 2017 meeting) who returns to Melbourne with clear advice on the 4 pathways to digital transformation, sharing the first draft of MIT CISR’s playbook for digital – based on research from 1,000 early digital leading organisations.

Why attend the CIO Edge Experience?

Curated content through our advisory council and ITNews

Topics are tackled from a C-level stakeholder perspective, with presentations covering common strategic, political, eco-system, future technology and capacity issues.

Insightful roundtables
and practical discussions

Into further smaller groups of 15-20, we cover
your preferred hot topics and offer everyone
a voice, with expert facilitation from our network
of analyst partners.
Note: Chatham House Rules Strictly Apply.

Personalise your agenda

Build & Create Your Own Agenda – Personalise
your entire Itinerary. The complimentary
deep-dive sessions and private roundtables
allow each delegate to tailor and control their specific event content.

Network with your peers

Harness the collective intelligence of your peers, share best practice, trade war stories and plan for success. Catch up with your peers and build relationships that last well beyond the summit.

5 star service provided

We want you to slow down, find your creative side, become open-minded and immerse yourself.
So we invite you to stay in the region’s best hotel environments, with a 5 star service provided
by the ADAPT team.

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.

“The Adapt Edge events are a great way to bring together ICT leaders and forward thinking technology providers, the content is outstanding and organisation is second to none.”

Head of Marketing – Alibaba


“It’s all around the networking, an opportunity to actually sit down in a closed environment with the partner community, solutions providers, and also gain some intel from my peers… that well-rounded approach to time with peers, time with theory, and the application of that through case studies, and then time in front of the partner community, that frankly, I just don’t get time for.”

Executive Director – 20th Century Fox


“It’s always struck me as a very powerful event, getting people to think about things and to talk… and have a common experience now to refer back to and to learn from.”

Why invest in the CIO Edge Experience?

Meeting_icon-02

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.

Sales_icon

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.

Timing_icon

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_icon_2

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.

Please note that this is not a conference or a tradeshow.
This is a private gathering for a selective group of CIOs and Financial Leaders. Access to any Edge Experience is dependent upon qualification.
