1 Day Meeting

2015 Chief Information Officer Leadership Forum

Sep 30, 2015

Overview

The role of the Chief Information Officer has greatly changed during the past few years. CIOs and IT leaders—who are now integral to accelerating their business’ growth—are tasked with driving value throughout the organization. They are consistently improving processes and workflow, accelerating time to market, and identifying new business opportunities. With the volatile economy, technology leaders have a unique opportunity to provide real business value by making decisions that will better position enterprises to succeed in upcoming years.

The Argyle CIO Leadership Forum in Toronto is bringing together leading CIOs, CISOs, CTOs, VPs, IT/Technology/MIS and IT leaders from a variety of industries to discuss best practices and innovative technology strategies. The forum will focus on several areas including: “Leveraging cloud computing,” “Challenges associated with IT consumerization,” ”Optimizing talent management,” “The impact of social media on the IT department,” “Data security,” and “The changing role of the CIO.”

The Role of the CIO in Designing The Digital Enterprise


The classic delineation between “the business” and “technology” no longer exists.  Gone are the days where technology organizations are "enabling” and/or “partnering" with the business.  Today’s marketplace requires businesses to see that technology is business.  The role of the CIO to drive true business innovation will be driven by their effectiveness in designing the new business using technology as its foundation.  In this presentation, David will discuss how the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission is embracing the culture of design to transform an Alberta-based crown corporation to an innovative digital provider of socially responsible entertainment options for Albertans.

Using Technology to Empower a Better Customer Experience

In today’s increasingly digital world, keeping up with the pace of change has never been more difficult for technology leaders.
