East Africa: iLab Africa Partners With Cio East Africa to Cio 100 Symposium and Awards

In a bid to determine the overall top contenders in the 2017 CIO 100 Awards, the annual CIO Symposium & Survey organizers has engaged iLab Africa.

Dennis Wambugu, a Business Intelligence Analyst at iLab notes that the adjudication team has been marveled with the high level of submissions forwarded by the respondents.

"We noticed that, emerging technology isn't merely a conjured-up report but they represent a series of already rolled-out initiatives - in pure capital, time and energy - that have massive implications for the enterprise. Dennis Wambugu.Business Intelligence Analyst at iLab

"We noticed that, emerging technology isn't merely a conjured-up report but they represent a series of already rolled-out initiatives - in pure capital, time and energy - that have massive implications for the enterprise," said Wambugu.

Whether the discussion revolves around robotics or virtual reality, or what that would be analyzed as "augmented humanity," the CIOs have proven that they have an obligation to keep their eyes on the technological horizon.

"Of importance is that the CIOs must be judicious when assessing the emerging technology landscape, advocating for the smart decisions aimed to secure the future of organizations," said Dr. Joseph Sevilla, Director iLab Africa.

ing the essence of the timely partnership, Ms. Laura Chite chief executive of CIO East Africa said: "We've keenly observed that CIO's executive role has increasingly become fundamental in business strategy," adding that following that understanding, the end-year CIOs Symposium agenda has been fashioned to add value to the corporate c-suite decision - making level industry players.
