Run and Reinvent

Turning pressure to power: The changing role of chief IT executives

London |
Speakers include:
Barney  Jopson

Overview

The ever-evolving demands of customers and the ever-present threat of competitive new entrants mean that reinventing an organisation is seldom off the agenda for chief IT executives. While they have a plethora of solutions and technologies at their disposal, the key trait that will ensure their organisation’s success is the ability to continue delighting customers while their transformative IT strategies are being executed and continually maintained behind the scenes.

In short, it means that enterprises need to seamlessly flex to any new market forces while at the same time preventing any delays to their customer-facing services, technologies and propositions. To achieve this, IT and business executives must align on digital resources and budgets and make use of new cloud, AI and automation technologies to transition to cost-effective, high-performing enterprises.

Hosted by the Financial Times, in partnership with BMC Software, this private executive dinner, held under the Chatham House Rule, will convene chief IT executives to discuss how they can manage the increased pressure and responsibility placed upon them in the face of ever-increasing digital disruption.
