Professional IT community Global CIO

Global CIO is a professional IT community that unites more than 10,000 IT professionals from 80+ countries. 

The goal of the Global CIO is to bring together IT leaders around the world to consolidate practical experience, create a unique knowledge base and communication between all professionals in the field of information technology. Any CIO, CTO, СDTO, CISO and other IT leaders involved in digital transformation can join the community for free. Global CIO was founded more than 10 years ago and has become international since 2022.

On the Global CIO portal we annually publish hundreds of IT cases, articles and expert interviews, conduct dozens of industry meetings, workshops and webinars. The main events and the hallmark of Global CIO are the annual Project of the Year and Top 100 IT Leaders contests:

  • Project of the Year is an annual IT project competition held by Global CIO. The mission of the Project of the Year is to find out, consolidate and promote best IT-practices created by global CIOs. The key goal we set for the contest is to give an opportunity for CIOs from all over the world to share their successful practices and get recognition from colleagues. At the same time, we want to give the participants access to the most successful projects implemented in the last year.

  • Top 100 IT Leaders is a ranking of digital transformation experts who, according to the professional community, make a significant contribution to the development of the IT industry. Top 100 IT Leaders is another way to showcase your accomplishments. Ranking leaders are also determined by voting.

The international IT professionals' community has announced the 'Top 100 IT Leaders' project. It is a global initiative that allows top IT managers to share their experience, expand their professional network and showcase the best digitalization practices of their companies. Here we will answer the basic questions about the project.

The editors of Global CIO discussed with Ahmet Hakan Göral, CIO at Boutique Rugs and winner of the Project of the Year 2023 contest, his current projects, the approach to digital transformation and the specifics of the role of CIO in retail.

April was full of new initiatives from vendors as well as some fascinating news on the technology front. With Olympics in Paris approaching, more  news will be flowing in from the capital of France.

My profession, the role of CIO, unfortunately means that sometimes I come to a company to replace another CIO. Presumably, the previous CIO did not suit the company, and they decided to replace him or her.
