Agenda


Coming Soon

The CIO Executive Summit agendas are driven by the mission-critical priorities identified among the community. Each agenda is uniquely crafted ’by CIOs, for CIOs,’ and will be available closer to the gathering. All topics and sessions will be inspired by the following themes.

Shaping the Efficient Enterprise with AI & Automation

Increased top-down demand for productivity and efficiency has ignited a race for the swift adoption of AI and automation capabilities. In 2024, the CIO will focus on building a fluid and dynamic organization, fueled by an AI-enhanced human workforce.

Strengthening Partnerships for Wider Business Impact

The CIO’s role in driving business success and strategic relevance has increased exponentially over the last five years. In order to continue the momentum, IT leaders are strengthening their partnerships across the C-suite to increase their scope of influence and impact.

Illustrating IT’s Value Through Business-first Initiatives

More and more enterprises today operate as holistic, digital businesses and shift more responsibility and expectations onto the CIO to deliver measurable results. By building accountability across all departments, CIOs deliver value by approaching initiatives with a business-first mindset.
