“Delighting Customers with Information Technology”

When Marx took his first CIO position, the CEO mandate was simple. Deliver exceptional IT services at a lower cost. In four years, Marx’s team had quadrupled their customer satisfaction scores with over 80% satisfied and highly satisfied users, taking them from lowest ranked department to highest. A Gartner case study, Marx leveraged the same principles in his next role. Few were surprised when IT came out on top of their organizations physician satisfaction survey. An amazing 96% of clinicians reported satisfaction or high satisfaction with IT.

Objectives:

  • Identify key action steps to create a customer centric culture
  • Hear how simple service principles led to transformation
  • Create your own plan to ensure high impact customer service

"Top Twelve Threats to the Enterprise – aka: 'Gene’s Dirty Dozen'"

If you were to take the time to scrutinize the data protection threats to your enterprise, you’d quickly realize that: 1) the threats are plentiful, and 2) sometimes the non-technical threats are just as dangerous as the high-tech vulnerabilities.  This presentation takes a high-level but interesting view of the threats faced by the typical enterprise.  For the past 17 years, Gene Scriven has created and evangelized his list of “Gene’s Dirty Dozen” to shed light on these vulnerabilities.  This presentation will highlight some issues you might not have thought of - and it ends with a contrast of today’s top threats compared with those from the threats of “the last century” (from 1998, actually).

“Keeping a Seat at the Table: Remaining Relevant”

As technology continues to pervade every aspect of our business and personal life, the role of the CIO as an innovator and visionary that can lead not only an IT organization, but also the business along its digital journey is critical. Technology is not going away, and unless CIOs change how they engage with the business, they will lose their relevancy and “seat at the table”. In this session, Mike Anderson will talk about his experiences and will share actions you can take within your companies to remain relevant in the technology conversation.
