The grand CIO Summit 2018 Guangzhou was held at Conrad Guangzhou on the theme of “Digital Transformation: New Thinking; New Perspective; New Practice”, from 19 to 20 July.

In 2018, the digital transformation of enterprises progressed vigorously. According to a report by Gartner Inc. in 2018, the IT expenditure in China has grown at a rate of around 10% per year over the past 5 years, making it #1 in the world. 

95% of the CIOs interviewed believed that the digital era has changed the nature of their work. CIOs who are “leading in digital transformation”, 84% of their work will be redefined as “IT+” development. The earlier an enterprise begins to expand its digital business, the sooner it will benefit.

In the innovation exhibition session, Vincent Zhang, the Senior Solution Consultant of HKT China Business, spoke on the “Development of Telecom and Communication Technology: Building a Digital Silk Road”. He explained how to build a “digital” silk road by using HKT’s network against a background of digital transformation of enterprises, and discussed how enterprises could accomplish digital transformation by using HKT’s professional services.  The latest developments of SDWAN, which helps enterprises improve the quality of their intranet and reduce costs, were also discussed.
