1 Day Meeting
Oct 17, 2019
In today’s digitally focused landscape, leading IT executives must ensure that their initiatives are not only disruptive enough to impact their business, but also their industry.
An innovative CIO knows that success as a digital-first company is led by technology and coupled with a customer-centric culture.
Driving change to achieve organizational growth is now powered by having a better understanding of your customer’s needs and reinforcing them with the strategic implementation of technology.
Argyle’s CIO Leadership Forum brings together IT executives to develop relationships, exchange ideas and find solutions to navigate digital transformation.
