Panel Description:

We operate in an era of constant and accelerating change, where industry and market volatility brings both uncertainty and opportunities. Boards and CEO's are looking to become more strategically agile in order to sense market shifts and respond quickly. Organizations are shifting the focus from 'strategic planning' to 'strategic agility'. As business strategies continue to flex and 'fluidly form' in response to the macro environment, leadership mindsets and operating models that were built for stability and predictability are found to be too rigid and even irrelevant. CIO's are uniquely placed to help their organizations successfully navigate and operate in this environment. Given the intertwined nature of business and technology, it is no longer possible to separate 'the business' from 'the technology'. When used as a strategic asset, IT-enabled opportunities such as data, analytics, and the cloud can help organizations become nimble and flexible drivers of industry and market change.

Listen to a panel of C-level Executives discuss how they are evolving the CIO Agenda and shaping Board Agendas... by harnessing the convergence of data, analytics and the cloud... all erstwhile 'emerging' technologies that are now 'mature enough' to enable business transformation and change. This panel will be moderated by a top IT Services Executive and focus on dimensions including IT-enabled innovation and creation of new sources of business value, IT-powered global operating models geared for agility, and information-powered decision-making. Come prepared to take away ideas and insights from industry leading firms on how CIO's are enabling Strategic Agility through Information Technology.
