Gartner Symposium / ITXpo 2008 Cannes
A total of 3,000 delegates including over 800 CIOs have arrived at the Gartner Symposium in Cannes, to hear how IT will be impacted by the economic slowdown.
Given a backdrop of economic slowdown and recession, the Gartner Symposium in Cannes has kicked off with a sombre message for chief information officers and IT directors: rather than look at reducing costs, look at adding value. True innovation occurs when trading conditions are tough. The message from the keynote speakers is: "IT must innovate in this economic downturn."
