Agenda


October 22, 2020

1:00pm - 2:00pm EDT

Getting Comfortable with the Imperfect State

The dream of total transformation – an overhaul of your technology foundation with a start and an end and maximum flexibility evermore – is long dead. Yet the frustrations that made that dream so appealing linger: tech debt, slow decision-making and adoption, data management issues. It falls to the CIO to stop tilting at the windmills of transformation and embrace a more perfect imperfection across the organization.

In this Town Hall conversation, CIOs will discuss:
- Strategies for making peace with tech debt while empowering new capabilities and staying on-budget
- Embracing a “minimum viable product” approach to tech initiatives with a “good enough for now” technology stack
- Getting the right data into the right hands by focusing on the right business questions
