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 Dallas 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.”
