A 1-day exclusive event for technology executives to share ideas, connect with peers, and collaborate to solve common challenges

The first wave of digital transformation (DX) was focused directly on the customer. But as digital transformation strategies have matured, the scope has broadened. Leading companies are adopting an end-to-end perspective of the business, connecting front- and back-office operations through the lens of customer experience. This presents technology executives with a tremendous opportunity to play a more active role operationally and become the most important innovators across the enterprise.

Join us for The CIO Imperative where we will discuss how the role of technology executives is expanding and becoming the key driver of innovation within the company. This is an invitation-only, private event for innovative technology leaders to share ideas, connect with peers, and collaborate to solve common challenges. Specifically, we will focus on:

  • How and why the CIO role has evolved into the most important role next to the CEO
  • Digital transformation imperatives that will help companies stay competitive now, and ten years out
  • Where to focus Digital Transformation dollars to get the best ROI
  • Start-ups/new technologies that are changing the corporate landscape and best ways to integrate them into your plans
