“Today, almost every country in the region has a cohesive national vision for a digital economy that focuses on driving local economic value, employment creation, and social development by reaching the underserved. Whether it is accessing essential government services, purchasing products on digital platforms, or the shift to online learning and working, the impact of this mass transition to digital is evident everywhere.”

“It will incorporate five different ‘Transformation Zones’ demonstrating pioneering use cases and technological advances in the areas of the metaverse, DevOps, customer experience, sustainability, and Industry 4.0,” according to the statement.

The event will include insights from IDC’s CIO Advisory Council for the Middle East, whose members include some of the region’s most respected ICT leaders and experts.

The 2023 edition will also feature an intricately tailored agenda of informative presentations, in-depth discussions, and expert-led panel sessions on today’s hottest ICT issues.
