Setting the Stage

The summit was masterfully orchestrated by Jai Kumar, Project Specialist of GEC Media Group, who set the stage for what would be a day of knowledge exchange, collaboration, and celebrating our collective achievements. The World CIO 200 Summit is dedicated to recognizing technological advancements and thought leadership, as well as honoring like-minded technology leaders and their groundbreaking innovations in the IT landscape.

It offered a platform for engaging panel discussions and speaking sessions, where industry leaders delved into the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities in the digital landscape.

The event commenced with an inspiring inaugural keynote by Dr. Salim Al-Shuaili, Director of AI & DT at the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Information Technology in Oman. Following that, Sujay Patil, Regional Sales Director MEA at Kissflow, shared his vision on ‘ERP Orchestration With The Power Of Low-Code & No-Code,’ shedding light on the potential of modern technology.
