Join our CIO Panel Discussion and then watch the world’s best golfers compete for the elite Presidents Cup at the IT Impact Tour in New Jersey on September 28th.
Business leaders often view IT as a black box of unaccountable, ever-increasing costs, yet they constantly ask for more. We know that CIOs and IT leaders need full visibility into their IT costs to make fact-based technology decisions that will deliver business value. Often the tug of war between run-the-business and innovate is a detriment to the business and the bottom line. We invite you to hear from this panel of CIOs to learn how they:
  • Quantify the value of IT's digital investments and earn the trust of the business.
  • Compare costs to industry peers and identify opportunities to improve efficiency.
  • Drive shared accountability with the business by showing how their consumption drives IT costs.
  • Adopt a data-driven hybrid IT mindset to balance traditional IT and public cloud models
Each of the leaders on this panel will share their experiences with these four topics and how they overcame challenges to drive success.
