Strengthening its focus on the CIO/ IT Leader Community in India, Web18’s portal Biztech2.com has entered into a wide-ranging, strategic alliance with the CIO KLUB, an initiative of the CIO Association. This strategic alliance includes a tie-up across content, events and marketing. This partnership seeks to further empower Indian CIOs.
At Web18, the CIO community has always been a strong focus area and the company recognises that IT is at the heart of businesses today and the CIO is a key C-Level executive in most organisations. Surya Mantha, CEO, Web18 said, "For us at Web18, CIOs are a key audience, and we are delighted that through this partnership, we can serve them better as they lead their businesses to faster growth and higher profitability by leveraging IT better. Biztech2.com was set up to help Indian business 'Profit from Technology' and I am confident that this initiative will help Indian firms do just that."
Biztech2.com, Web18’s infotech portal, strives to bring to the CIO community innovative options that will help them in their area of expertise. Biztech2 TV recently launched India’s first IP-based, online, on-demand video channel for CIOs, and is today among the world’s largest compendiums of videos focused on enterprise technology. Recently, Web18 also organised the Biztech2.com Enterprise Tech Show, a first-of-its-kind, completely online trade show that saw thousands of Indian CIOs tuning in to attend the information-packed online conferences, visit the online exhibitor pavilions and network with industry leaders and peers.
The CIO KLUB has deep knowledge on Domain, Technology and Business and Web18 provides it with a means to disseminate the same to the community, online. The KLUB aims to set up and empower councils and chapters in multiple cities, with the help of Web18. The apex body will mentor them by sharing best practices through a knowledge-sharing series, interactions with experts, and meetings with business leaders - CEO/ CFO and CMO. The KLUB also aims to provide theme-based knowledge to CIOs on Security, Green IT, Women Leadership, Cloud Computing, Applications/ Solutions, and other technologies and tools.
The relationship of Web18 with the CIO KLUB is customised to the needs of the KLUB, which is looking to scale up the organisation and the association via education programs, relationship building with technology partners and knowledge sharing.
The new partnership between Web18 and the CIO KLUB will include wide-ranging participation of key CIO KLUB members in the content initiatives of Biztech2.com, thus ensuring that the portal delivers the most-relevant content to CIOs. Ivor Soans, managing editor, Enterprise Technology, Network18, said, "We constantly seek to empower CIOs through our content. I’m very excited to have the CIO KLUB work so closely with us on our content initiatives—this will ensure that our content is not just for CIOs, but also closely guided by CIOs themselves, thus giving us the closest relationship with the CIO/ IT Leader audience in India."
Also, on the anvil are a series of joint events, including joint content management for all events, as well as an arrangement to organise and market all CIO KLUB events, including international ones.
