Why You Should Attend!

Digital transformation has swiftly surpassed every other business priority as the top strategic focus for all organizations. Consequently, executive teams are turning to their CIOs and IT teams more than ever before to build a strategy and usher the organization into this new reality. These demands have radically transformed the role of the CIO in recent years, granting the CIO a much bigger role in driving organizational strategy, and supporting other areas of the business in driving agility. Looking to 2017 and beyond, how will this role continue to evolve? How will CIOs leverage their seat at the table to drive new revenue streams, redefining the role of IT within the business? And what will the next generation of transformation look like?

Argyle Executive Forum, in partnership with Workday, is bringing together leading CIOs and senior IT executives from across industries to discuss these topics and more, including: the importance of digital transformation, navigating the challenges with regards to ushering an organization into the digital era, the CIO’s role in driving over all business strategy and generating new revenue, etc.
