Veaam sponsors 7th CIO100 Annual Symposium and Awards

Veeam partners with CIO East Africa to host the 7th CIO 100 Symposium & Awards in Naivasha, Kenya

Veaam has inked its sponsorship to the 7th CIO100 Annual Symposium and Awards slated for November 9th-10th, 2017 in Naivasha, Kenya.

The timeliness of Veeam sponsoring the annual information, communications and technology (ICT) meeting marks yet another beginning of the industry addressing gaps as dependency on technology heightens and many critical business functions and personnel continue to rely heavily on data, says Ms. Laura Chite, Chief Executive of the CIO East Africa.

For organizations to achieve their business goals, they are looking to digital transformation
and the platform to deliver more efficient, agile, and reliable services to meet user needs. “It is therefore, timely to find Veeam, a partner who is willing to share insights in the quest of addressing the gaps that slow that pace of digital transformation in various establishments,” said Chite.

Veeam a software company that develops back-up systems, disaster recovery and data management software for virtual, physical and cloud-based workloads is focused to engage with the Eastern Africa markets to address issues behind the struggle of digital transformation and innovation.

“We’ve never been as dependent on technology as we are today, nor have we had as
many critical business functions and personnel that rely so heavily on their data. For
organizations to achieve their business goals, they are looking to digital transformation
and the cloud to deliver more efficient, agile, and reliable services to meet user needs,” states a detailed report from Veeam.

The unfortunate reality is that too many business-accelerating digital transformation
initiatives are being hindered by inadequacies in their current IT systems’ Availability. Why?
The teams are burdened with keeping their existing systems running, they aren’t able
to move their systems and architecture forward to help their organizations evolve.

To this effect Veeam in conjunction with CIO 100 Symposium organizers aims to delve deeper on the nagging aspects that entail: “Why are organizations still struggling to digitally transform and innovate? Why aren’t they rendering worthwhile impacts? Could the reason be service availability goals?”

To better understand the Availability Gap, and how to address the challenges, in today’s disruptive and fast changing technology world, CIO East Africa in conjunction with Veeam® has invited Chief Executives, CIOs and COOs among other C-level decision makers to a session that culminates to a Dinner with a LEADER at the 2017 East Africa CIO 100 Symposium & Awards.

Bookings are already underway for industry peers converge to celebrate excellence, learn and share insights on how to confront unfamiliar dynamics that are largely driven by technological transformations and create opportunities for new revenue streams, .

The two-day high energy celebrations of IT excellence marked with networking opportunities and knowledge held at Enashipai Resort and Spa is hosted by CIO East Africa and its climax will be the recognition of excellence in adoption and use of ICT by organisations.


  1. The gesture of collaboration between Veeam and CIO East Africa to host the eagerly awaited 7th Annual CIO 100 Symposium & Awards is worth appreciation considering that several organization are grappling with how to close the digital transformation gaps.
