The conference programme opens each day with the C-level Breakfast Briefings, which will address issues that are of vital importance to IT executives.
Issues covered will include sessions on IT spending, IT innovation, solving business issues with IT and the role of the CIO at the board level.
Each day will be officially opened with a keynote address, each of which will be presented by leading executives from companies and organisations including Dell, DIFC, DIC, the RTA and DNRD.
Dedicated daily tracks will include a stream that focuses on topics where business and IT meet, aimed at C-level executives, to help them align IT strategies with business objectives.
Small-to-medium businesses are also catered for, with daily SMB Solution Panel Debates. These discussion sessions will give advice on where the industry can help SMBs to leverage IT, without too much complexity or cost.
The programme will also include tracks dedicated to MEFX and GULFCOMMS, which address specific issues for the finance and telecoms verticals respectively.
The Conference will also take different approaches to knowledge transfer, including Tutorial Tools sessions, that provide classroom learning for executives, to gain more indepth knowledge on specific subjects, and a Collaboration Workshop stream which covers targeted areas of expertise such as ITIL and technical certifications.
The programme includes two specialised one-off tracks - a Developer Day will introduce specialised tracks for technical staff, with the focus on major vendors; and several free sessions dedicated to ROI Power Tools.
