CIO500: Kumbh of CIOs

What a date 13 to 15 December 2019, we have successfully celebrated Kumbh of CIOs In Hotel Novotel, New Delhi.

Everywhere all are talking about Digital Transformation, lots of technical discussions and partner-driven lucky draws make the environment very happy. The rocking band of Aki Kumar made the CIOs dance and party.

A true platform for CIOs, we can say that our Prayagraj Ardh Kumbh Mela, 2019 is the Ardh Kumbh Mela, but CIO’s Kumbh Mela is the full Kumbh fair this year.

Our Novotel Hotel, New Delhi is our Triveni Sangam, and our saints are our beloved CIOs. This is one of the best times in Indian history that all CIO’s are on one platform discussing their issues and pain points with fellow CIOs and partners.

For Partners also, this is one of the platforms that almost 40+ partners are available for all segments and they also learned from each other and collected lots of business opportunities from CIOs.

My personal experience after CEO position in Netlynx has given me lots of opportunities to learn and network for future business. I have learned how our company, Netlynx is different from others, there are IT companies and then there are integrated IT enterprises that redefine the very essence of the word ‘Service’. Netlynx is one such entity that has given a completely new meaning to customer needs. No wonder then we are tagged as a leading cloud & IT infrastructure services company. Incidentally, we provide services to some of the top Indian and global organizations across several industry verticals and industries. A true Ashirwad from all CIOs is required to make this mission successful, to save cost and improve service.

CIOs’ Mela planned one year back by Sanjay and his team and well-executed on time like booking of Air travel, Hotel, Trophy, and partners. Well organized and well planned.

Several panel discussions, hot topics like changing role of CIOs’, Data centre and growth of cloud, Future of emerging technology, CEO vs CIO, Deep Learning, Data Security, Digital transformation in Bank/Manufacturing/Healthcare, etc.

A well-managed, organized and what else, Yoga, Cricket and Golf and many more activities.

I am very impressed with the Band of Aki Kumar from USA, very innovative. We CIOs and Partners danced, giving us the opportunity to stay awake up till 2 am night to celebrate our success. 

Hats off to Enterprise IT World team, Sanjay, Sanjeev, Pooja, Nidhi etc, who tirelessly worked 24/7 to make this happen and support from our partners. Not even a single incident happened to dampen the feelings, everybody was happy.

First time in the history of CIOs’ event that more than 100+ Lucky draws were taken out, some CIOs won 3-4 gifts, some won Apple watches and BOSE headphones, and many more goodies.

I can say that everybody looks like a Digital Baba, a centre of attraction at Novotel, New Delhi.

I have met with some of the innovative companies like Techchef, HOLM Security, Graftronics, IceWarp and many more.

In the hands of the digital CIO’s, the awakening of the ecstatic culture of the Sangam (Novotel) is on and we from Netlynx Technologies Pvt. Ltd. Wish all the Winners a Happy New year and Wish this 2020 comes as Digital Year with more knowledge and wealth to come.
