Today every company, regardless of industry, operates as a technology company. In this environment, technology leaders must elevate IT’s impact by becoming a strategic partner to the business and drive innovation within their organization. By aligning technology investments to business priorities and shifting from a cost center to a service provider, technology leaders can build IT for tomorrow while gaining the trust and respect of their peers.

Join our Atlanta event to hear from Keith Edwards, Director IT at First Data, as he shares their approach to using cost transparency and how it has enabled them to make better decisions within IT and the business. Keith will share some key learnings and outcomes achieved, and how that provided real impact to the business.  

Joined by technology and finance leaders we will discuss how every organization can:
  • Prevent the business from consuming IT like it's free 
  • Avoid drowning in keep-the-lights-on costs that hinder innovation 
  • Stop wasted IT spend that flies under the rader
Participants will enjoy a gourmet lunch at The Biltmore Ballrooms, Atlanta's two most spectacular European-style ballrooms, followed by a presentations and roundtable discussion.
