To start Day 1 we were joined by Dr. Jamshid Vayghan, IBM’s Global CTO for Vodafone, who spoke about hybrid cloud and digital transformation.

His multi-disciplinary career, training, education, work experience in 4 continents & different cultures and locations have turned him into a global leader with hands-on, “roll up the sleeves” leadership style, capable of diving into details where required, while still retaining the capacity to look at the large picture & focus on long-term impact of decisions & strategy on business outcomes, customer experience, & cost.
