When and where is it on?

How many years has it been going?

The Dialogue will be returning to Ireland for its 6th edition in 2018, bringing together a host of new speakers, stories and partners.

What was the inspiration to start it?

Ireland has seen intense development and investment across the country in recent years as companies have begun to realise its potential to become the digital hub of Europe. With a diverse, technically skilled population, and CIOs facing a variety of new challenges as their role continues to grow in importance, we wanted to be able to offer a platform for collaboration and benchmarking to help the market continue to thrive and grow.

What exciting things can people look forward to for the 2018 version?

Hosted by Joan Mulvihill, attendees can look forward to 2 full days of insightful discussion and dialogue around their areas of focus for the year ahead. The agenda has been built with the market in mind and follows on from months of research with CIOs from across the country.

With case studies, panel discussions, workshops and roundtables the event will cover the continuing digital transformation journey, the latest developments in cyber-security, utilising data and customer insights, upcoming regulation and how to leverage the business opportunities – including EUGDPR, developing technologies such as AI and Blockchain, making the most of your move to the cloud, how to overcome the IT skills gap and many more.

Attendees can also look forward to a personalised itinerary which includes the opportunity to meet with their choice of solution partners, hand-picked to help you achieve your business goals for 2018, and beyond.
