The high level of professionalism and IT projects that were presented at this meeting opened up opportunities for active discussions, especially in the informal part of the event.

Of particular interest was the speech of Abdulaziz Sattarov, a member of the Board of UniversalBank (Uzbekistan), about the new role of the CIO, his new tasks. The ideas that Abdulaziz offers are innovative not only for Uzbekistan, but also for the CIO of any country in general.

The CIO should not only be included in the business, but should lead business processes, being a key link for shaping the company's strategy and its development.
