Round Table


NTT-Netmagic, India’s leading Managed Hosting and Hybrid Multi-Cloud solution provider joined hands with INFOCOM, India's Top Business, Technology and Leadership Conference from the house of ABP - India’s leading media conglomerate to present a virtual CIO CONNECT interactive roundtable.

2020 has been the year of transformation. CIOs have held enormous responsibilities over the past year, spearheading the digital initiatives that enabled their organizations to survive unprecedented challenges. And while the events of 2020 threw everyone for a loop, we can expect the same level of rapid change in 2021. The CIO role will be just as important in 2021 – driving digital transformation, staying abreast of the latest trends, and proactively adopting technologies to help ensure agility and flexibility.

As we start a new year and move into the second phase of digital transformation, this virtual INFOCOM CIO Connect Roundtable presented by NTT-Netmagic will be a closed group interactive brainstorming session between select CIOs that will enable the exchange of ideas, experiences and thought processes on the way forward in 2021.
