2019 CIO Leadership Forum: Embracing the Digital Revolution, from Information to Transformation

Atlanta, GA - Apr 11, 2019

Overview

2019 CIO Leadership Forum: Embracing the Digital Revolution, from Information to Transformation 

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 do 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. 

Argyle’s CIO Leadership Forum provides the relationships, resources, and solutions to help IT leaders digitally transform their 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 
  • Continuing the cloud journey to ensure it is seamless, streamlined, and secure 
  • Demystifying and deploying blockchain for effective adoption and achievable results 
  • Creating value for your organization through machine learning and AI 
  • Becoming more agile through clearly defined micro-services and API-based integration 
  • The next generation CIO – building engaged teams and redefining what is possible for the enterprise 
  • Using advanced analytics, data coming from connected devices, and the power of AI and machine learning to derive insights to drive better business results
