Innovation, as it applies to the alignment of IT initiatives and business objectives, is one of this year’s top goals for CIOs and technology leaders. More than half of the strategic IT executives (54%) taking part in IDG’s 2017 State of the CIO Survey cite ‘driving business innovation’ and ‘developing and refining’ business strategy as primary concerns this year. The demand for innovative yet practical solutions is not only driven by business needs, but by new and emerging technology.
This virtual panel discussion will explore the evolving relationship between IT and the business as technology innovation intersects with and, in many cases, drives corporate objectives.
Panelists include: Sarah Naqvi, CIO at HMSHost; Joel Dobbs, CIO Executive Council Coach & Mentor; President & CEO, The Compass Talent Management Group LLC; Executive in Residence, University of AL Birmingham; and Jim Swanson, CIO at Monsanto Company
