2019 CIO Leadership Deep Dive: Digital Transformation Starts with People

Seattle, WA - Mar 12, 2019

Overview

In today’s thriving digitally focused landscape, leading IT executives across all organizations must ask themselves whether what their initiatives are disruptive enough to impact their business and industry. While transformation implies that there is an end to some, many leaders know that the digital journey does not end, and adapting is the only means of survival. 

The modern CIO knows that success as a digital first company does not lead with technology, but instead focuses on overhauling the enterprise with customer centric goals and mindsets. Organizational growth can now be defined as the balancing act between strategic implementation of technology with the ability to consistently drive change. This cannot be done without the help and trust of people. 

Argyle’s CIO Leadership Deep Dive provides the relationships, resources, and solutions to help IT leaders digitally transform their teams and organizations. In collaboration with our Argyle Influencers CIO Advisory Board, we have designed an agenda that will touch on: 

• The business of transformation – modernizing applications, anticipating threats, and prioritizing your roadmap 
• Fostering collaboration and innovation within the organization 
• Shifting cultural mindsets and developing trust through change 
• Continuing the cloud journey to ensure it is seamless, streamlined, and secure 
• Creating value for your organization through machine learning and AI 
• Becoming more agile through clearly defined micro-services and API-based integration 
• Building engaged teams and redefining what is possible for the enterprise 
• Creating and exploring jobs of the future

Thought Leadership featuring GitLab: "Cloud Native Transformation: The World is Changing"

Digital transformation is a continually evolving practice. As new digital technologies emerge, enterprises must adapt. For some, this means continuing and scaling an existing transformation. For others who are behind, the opportunity exists to leapfrog into a modern era by adopting cloud native technologies such as containers and microservices alongside implementing more traditional Agile and DevOps methodologies for software development and delivery. Learn why enterprises are moving to cloud native and how the most successful are making the change.

Keynote Presentation: "How IT can Participate in your Digital Transformation - and make a Real Impact!"

In most traditional organizations, IT is a back-office function that focuses on Operations and cost control, spending little time with Customers and Products. But in a company transforming into a Digital Business, teams that work with Information and Technology have a much greater change to participate in those connections – and will very probably be on the team that reacts to and delivers on the ideas that are generated. Should IT play a key role in a Digital Transformation? This presentation will provide some context for the idea – with real-world examples and stories of what works
