Others topics discussed were service-oriented architecture (Jini and Web services), data mining and a mobile communication primer which included wireless radio communication and communication networks.

Another highlight was a CIO summit that sought to address key issues faced by Indian CIOs. Topics such as IT governance and software licensing issues were discussed and debated in depth at the conference. Rajan Kaiker, Co-Chairman, Franklin Covey, APAC involved the CIOs in a session on "Creating a culture of execution to meet business goals."
