Market intelligence firm is to host a summit for CIOs in the Middle East next year.

The event, which will take place 16-17 March at the Grand Hyatt in Dubai, will bring together CIOs, technology gurus and business strategists, the firm said.

"The days when CIOs simply supervised networks and made sure PCs and servers didn't crash are long gone," said Jyoti Lalchandani, vice president and regional managing director of IDC Middle East and Africa.

"An essential component of the CIO event is the opportunity to network with peers. By giving invited CIOS the red carpet treatment, IDC hopes to tap into their vast wealth of experience while introducing them to global ICT leaders, enabling them to share solutions and discuss day-to-day and longer term professional goals."

The summit will include sessions on IT governance, unified communications strategy and customer outsourcing directions, the firm said.
