Mr Basuli will deliver a keynote speech on ‘Aligning IT capability with business strategy’ on the first morning of the two-day conference, scheduled for 23-24 April 2005 at the Crowne Plaza hotel and organised by Intevents. Aligning IT with business strategy is a top priority for business leaders, as effective use of information technology must keep track of ever-changing operating goals within the organisation.
With a degree in Mathematics and Business Administration from the Universidad Complutense and the Universidad Politécnica, both in Madrid, Rafael directed systems integration for Cadbury Schweppes throughout Europe. Part of his role was to ensure that the company had a clear view of how the technology plans were aligned with the strategic business plans. The alignment process examines key strategies, breaks them down into time-phased action plans and synchronises the technology plans to create business objective driven systems.

Ahmed Al Dheeb, Under Secretary, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, is delighted to welcome such an experienced IT professional to the conference. ‘It is vital, for the growth of Oman’s corporations, that they succeed in implementing business focused information and communication technology solutions’ ‘Only through attending events, such as the ICT conference, with fellow experts will IT professionals discover the business and technology skills they require to play a leading role in driving their companies forward into the 21st century’ he said.
