Warid CIO Forum

cio-forumNo matter whether one is a business executive or a technology expert, personal face-to-face networking is an important aspect of professional development. In Pakistan we are beginning to warm up to this approach. Warid recently arranged a CIO forum in Lahore, which seems to be limited to Warid’s executives and business partners (details are below). It will take a while to build the trust which brings competitive companies together to discuss solutions to common issues. I hope that in near future CIOs from all major telecom companies in Pakistan can come together and promote indigenous solutions.

From a press release sent to me by Warid’s public relations team.

Wateen Telecom and Warid Telecom under the Warid Telecom International umbrella are quickly evolving as major players in the emerging markets of South Asia, Africa and now Eastern Europe. The exponential growth and addition of complex set of services also poses CIOs with a number of challenges. Effective use of technology, alignment with business goals, standardization and recognition of emerging trends are just some of these challenges.

WTI CIO Forum has been created to address these challenges. The main objective of this forum is to bring together the IT management from across the group to share their experiences, discuss the technology roadmap, talk about various emerging industry trends and try to leverage a synergy that exists in various projects and operations.

Along with other top-level industry executives from major companies, Mr. Marwan Zawaydeh, Board of Director and CEO of Warid Telecom, Mr. Salman Khurram, Head of IT at Wateen Telecom, and Mr. Mohammad Ali, GM IT Warid Telecom, spoke at the forum. The forum partners included International Turnkey Systems, TechAccess, and Cisco.

    LAHORE- A Civil court on Monday ordered Pakistan Telecommunication Limited (PTCL) authorities to submit details of PTCL assets before the court.
    As the counsel of Global IT Vision civil Pvt had filed a suit seeking damages of Rs. one billion from PTCL for suspending services to the IT Company without any legal justification. The court had already issued notices to PTCL Chief Executive, Senior Executive Vice President Tariq Salman, General Manager Muhammad Bsharat Qureshi and Senior Manager Nadeem Abbasi.
    The suit for damages was filed by the Company’s counsel Azher Siddique Advocate.
    Petitioner’s counsel contended that PTCL had suspended agreement with IT firm on May 4, 2010 and suspended SIP services to the company without giving an opportunity of hearing to company.
    Counsel said that due to suspension of services, the Company has to bear loss of billions of rupees and suspension by PTCL also tarnished the image of the company.
    He prayed before the court to freeze all the assets of PTCL and put names of senior officials including a foreigner on exit control list (ECL).
    Azher further prayed the court to direct PTCL to submit Rs. one billion as security so that PTCL could not sell the assets of the company in case of a decision against it.
