CIO Klub, the non-profit and largest Association of Chief Information Officers in India launched its Kolktata and Hyderabad chapters this month. With these two chapters, CIO Klub has now gained presence across 8 cities including Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, and Coimbatore.


The CIO Klub journey which began way back in 2008, has now emerged as India’s largest peer group of Chief Information Officers (CIOs) with 1,200+ members spread across industries including Manufacturing, BFSI, Pharma, Healthcare, Retail, Real Estate, IT Services, Construction, Aviation, Media and Entertainment including Government PSUs.

Umesh Mehta, President CIO Klub said, “It has been our endeavour to make CIO Klub - a Pan India body and with East and Hyderabad chapter launches, we have achieved that objective. The club now has presence across North, East, West andSouth."

The IT landscape has transformed since India embraced information technology close to three decades ago. Earlier the erstwhile EDP heads were more tactical and focused on planning and implementation of information technologies. However, today, the CIO’s are required to focus more on knowledge management, harnessing knowledge to provide strategic direction to the board by aligning IT with business vision. CIO Klub acts as a unique platform for CIOs to benefit from shared learning besides tapping the collective wisdom within the peer group through its 3C philosophy– Come, Connect & Collaborate.

CIO Klub aims to play a key role as an enabler by providing adequate learning through the peer group, special CIO courses planned jointly by IIMs and IITs to help them enhance technology, soft skills and enhance their strategic mindset.

We are making rapid strides and inroads into the country, and we plan to launch chapters in Tier-3 and Tier-4 cities to ensure the learning and knowledge sharing can augment the CIOs and IT decision makers across length and breadth of India,” said he.
