Gartner Announces Program for Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, November 21-23, Mumbai

More Than 500 IT Leaders To Gather At The Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel

Gartner, Inc. today announced the program for its annual flagship conference in India, Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, to be held this year in Mumbai from 21 to 23 November 2011.

Gartner Symposium/ITxpo will be India’s largest and most important gathering of CIOs and senior IT leaders. More than 500 CIOs, IT leaders, Gartner analysts and technology solution providers will gather at the Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel to gain insight on hot topics including social, mobile, cloud, green IT, Pattern-Based Strategy and context-aware computing.

“The continued emergence of disruptive technologies and their disproportionate impact on enterprises across industries has given IT a seat at the strategy table — offering a new context for an organisation's infrastructure, investment, innovation and growth,” said Partha Iyengar, vice president, distinguished analyst at Gartner and conference chair for Gartner Symposium/ITxpo. “As a CIO and senior IT leader, your success depends on identifying and leveraging appropriate technologies for business benefit and differentiation — and knowing how to broaden the impact of IT's overall contribution to cost management, operational excellence, enterprise growth and competitive advantage.”

Gartner Symposium/ITxpo is the industry's only event to deliver the insights, tools and relationships necessary to create, validate and execute transformative business technology strategies. The advice attendees hear will help position their business to move forward.

The conference and exhibition features four role-based tracks, plus a special program just for CIOs, focusing on the issues, decisions and actions required for CIOs to be successful. The agenda includes more than 70 sessions, workshops, how-to clinics, roundtables and more. Delegates have the opportunity to book one-on-one meetings with  Gartner analysts to discuss their specific challenges.

The combination of peer interaction and independent and objective content from the world's leading IT research and advisory organisation is one that can't be found anywhere else. Delegates leave with personally relevant advice, stimulated thinking and an action plan for the year ahead.
