CIOs Connecting Business, Data, and Technology

 According to Gartner, the challenge for many IT and business leaders today is to instill a culture of data-driven decision making across the organization. Those who want to exploit the potential of new data and advanced analytics capabilities at scale typically face numerous challenges. As CIO, it's critical to develop a strong, clear strategy connecting business, technology, and data and analytics to maintain your competitive advantage and mitigate these challenges.


In this session, CIOs will

  • Discuss best practices for designing data and analytics programs

  • Identify and define quick-win opportunities supporting the business data strategy

Virtual Summit Boardroom Sessions

Accelerating Security at the Pace of the Business

 In 2020, the multi-decade process of turning the digital enterprise inside out accelerated instantly. We’ve now passed an inflection point – most cyber assets live outside the old “walls” of the organization and cybersecurity controls must be scalable, flexible and reliable. How are CIOs partnering with CISOs to establish a security strategy that is an enabler of the digital business rather than an obstacle?

In this interactive session, you’ll discuss:

  • Redesigning cybersecurity architecture to enable the work-from-anywhere culture

  • Foundational technologies to support a global cybersecurity mesh 

  • Reconceptualizing traditional ideas of how to approach security within the enterprise and shifting the business mindset

Digital Experience – Executing to Win

Consumer trends speak volumes: Digital experience is the new order – and a winning game plan tracks with increasing digital demands. As the rules of engagement shift, a CIO is well-positioned to guide the organization from digital ambition to execution. 

This interactive, peer-driven discussion will cover:  

  • Identifying digital opportunities that drive adoption and customer satisfaction

  • Optimizing digital platforms to build business capabilities

  • Delivering value through deeper external and internal engagement
