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

New York, NY - Jun 20, 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

Keynote Presentation: "How IT can Lead 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

Keynote Presentation: "Futures for Digital CIO's"

What does the future hold for a digital CIO and do you plan for it? The transformation journey is not a simple one. The digitization of an organization is no small task by itself, but CIO’s need confidence that changes they’re making will work for them in the future. How many of yesterday’s hot technologies hit dead ends? This session will explore ways to assess possible futures on an organization’s own terms. There are many forces at play that influence the digital infrastructure necessary for success and not all paths work for every organization.

This session will identify four themes that organizations can use to build scenarios to help them plan. We’ll touch on a maturity model that can guide investment and sort how to establish guideposts to ensure that you’re on track.
