[ About us ]

DQ Live is a twice a year conference and awards program for CIOs and technology decision makers from India's leading enterprises. The objective of this event is to create an opportunity for CIOs to raise and debate critical issues facing their industry and jobs. On this platform, CIOs share ideas, opinions and experiences, network with peers, and interact with technology vendors on emerging tech and business trends and their business challenges. DQ Live is also a platform where CIOs are recognized and felicitated, once a year, for some of their pioneering and path breaking work across critical and emerging areas such as cloud, enterprise mobility, security, and CSR.

[ Building the Digital Platform 2.0 ]

Digitalization in Indian organizations is beginning to move from just an innovation initiative to a mainline core competence. In this journey, organizations and their CIOs need to understand and build digital platforms in all aspects of their businesses. Not doing so will threaten their ability to deliver, attract and retain talent, and have their products and services perceived as substandard and inferior. A 2016 CIO global survey by Gartner shows that digitalization is intensifying. In the coming five years, technology decision-makers expect digital revenues to grow from 16% to 37%. In the public-sector, CIOs predict a rise from 42% to 77% in digital processes. The increasing focus on digital is a clear pointer to the fact that stakeholders including networks of employees, channel partners, suppliers, regulators — both inside and outside the enterprise — will bring value to each other by exploiting and exploring platform dynamics. Digital CIO will be the one who gets everyone together and gets the best out of everyone. But the Digital CIOs challenge will be to "retool and rethink" not just the tech platform, but all other platforms.
