IT Innovation. C-Suite Collaboration. Business Impact.

Organizations are constantly looking for ways to improve efficiencies to grow competitive advantage.

Content Focus

The future of business is under construction everywhere, with IT innovation as its chief architect. The tech industry is exploding with new products and services in social collaboration tools, mobility, predictive analytics and the cloud. The “customer experience” — once the sole province of marketing and sales — nowadays belongs to IT leaders, as well.

But most important of all is the state of the C-suite. Those companies with the most strongly aligned, collaborative senior executives will be the ones outpacing their rivals in the race to digitize business. How can IT organizations do a better job of innovating and driving business transformation? How can CIOs unify their C-suites around digital strategies that assure greater success? The CIO 100 Symposium is the place to find those answers.
