Indonesia’s technology masterminds to form the biggest huddle at digitalCIO 2024

In the wake of “Making Indonesia 4.0”, the country’s Chief Information Officers (CIOs) are burdened with getting the maximum output from emerging technologies. While tech adoption is being considered as the primary fuel for economic boom, the same has been expected to give a $2.8 trillion gain by 2040, as per Indonesia’s Ministry of Finance.

To aid the CIOs & IT leaders with their technology requirements and address the most crucial pain points and innovations, the capital city will witness the inaugural edition of digitalCIO Indonesia on 7 – 8 May 2024 at Hotel Mulia Senayan Jakarta. With an untarnished reputation like no other, the organiser, Tradepass has been driving the country’s most successful technology events like IndoSec and World Financial Innovation Series (WFIS).

This is the first time that they’re bringing all the top technology experts from A-to-Z sectors under one roof, which goes to show the sheer scale of the platform. While a CIO event is not new to Indonesia, the upcoming edition of digitalCIO promises to bring the country’s leading technology officials to the fore, via cherry picking through multiple rounds of rigorous parameter-based screening. The 300+ CIOs & IT leaders for the event comprise the so-called transformational leaders who’re responsible for making their organisations globally competitive and future-ready for Industry 4.0. 

The platform also aims to uncover numerous domains that have had a direct impact on the economy and have been the industry buzzwords lately. For instance, smart cities can be one such domain and for which the platform will be featuring none other than the Head of Jakarta Smart City, Juan Kanggrawan to share some compelling intel. Post confirming his participation as a key speaker at the event, Juan expressed, “Having diverse & multi-disciplinary perspective is highly critical in this complex world, especially in the realm of technology. Technology leadership and implementation need various considerations from the perspective of policy, risk, economics, social behavior and the technology maturity itself. I wish Indonesia can push through & deliver concrete positive impacts by leveraging latest technology in various sectors.”

On the road to becoming ASEAN’s technology hotbed, Indonesia houses over 300 fintech companies and secured a mammoth funding of $3.5 billion between 2020 and 2023. While the above is a clear testament to the growing investor confidence and compelling growth prospect of fintech, it also goes to show the growing financial services industry. In that light, another key speaker for the event, Yusron Anas, CIO of Home Credit Indonesia expressed his perspective on how Home Credit leverages technology to contribute to the national economy, while also outlining his expectations for the event.

“As Indonesia continues its journey towards embracing Industry 4.0, the role of Chief Information Officers (CIOs) becomes increasingly pivotal. At Home Credit Indonesia, we view technology as a catalyst for positive change, enabling us to reach underserved communities and drive economic empowerment. Our participation in digitalCIO 2024 is not only about showcasing our technological prowess, but also about highlighting our commitment to making financial services accessible to all Indonesians. By leveraging cutting-edge technology, we aim to create possibilities to improve the lives of many individuals in Indonesia by providing convenient access to financial services. We look forward to sharing our insights and experiences at the event, demonstrating how our innovative approach sets us apart in advancing financial inclusion in Indonesia.”

While it’s still too early to state the complete range of solutions that will be showcased at the platform, the event has released the conference agenda that will shed light on key topics such as ‘Transforming Cities with IoT and Connectivity’,  ‘AI Strategies for Business Success’, ‘Fine-Tuning Cloud Resources’, ‘Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) in Industry 4.0’, ‘Tailoring Solutions with Low-Code No-Code’, ‘ITAM Automation’ and many others.
