Transforming IT Operations with New Data and Insights

No one would think a 99-year-old insurance company would be at the forefront of digital innovation – but State Farm has bucked perceptions to become one of the most forward-thinking companies in insurance. But it hasn’t always been an easy path for State Farm. The company’s SVP & CIO of Enterprise Technology, Ashley Pettit, has worked in partnership with their CFO and other executive leaders to build a successful partnership between the business, finance, and IT. Tracking IT costs and explaining how they deliver value has enabled State Farm to change the conversation between the technology and corporate business teams – from strategy and planning, to investment decisions, to ultimate cost and value.

Join your colleagues for a conversation around:

  • Partnering across the C-suite to align on objectives across the business
  • Driving disruption across your entire organization through trusted decision-making
  • Strategies for increasing business value while delivering unparalleled customer service
