Why You Should Attend!



Modern business is all about customer-centricity. It’s about personalized customer experiences supported by smart, automated processes. Rising expectations call for the modern business to be always on, omnipresent and predictive (rather than reactive) in responding to changes in customers’ needs and preferences. All of this needs to be supported by carefully designed ‘enterprise data plumbing’. Data needs to flow to where it’s needed with the minimum of friction. It must arrive clean and ready to consume at the point of use, and it must be secured against leaks and contamination.

During this virtual event, executives will discuss how organizations can better leverage data to drive digital transformation and improve performance by incorporating data insights in their decision making processes.

Topics that will be covered include, but are not limited to:
· Current and future disruptive technologies
· The role of data in business strategies
· Data strategy as a C-level concern
· Demonstrating the value of data to ensure funding
· Creating real business value with the right strategy

The "2018 CIO Virtual Event: Building a Rock Solid Data Foundation for Your Digital Transformation" is proudly sponsored by:

This event will feature insights from top executives, including:
