2023: A Seminal Year for CIOs and Technology Leaders

Wednesday Sept. 13 |  5:30 - 8:30 PM ET

Working with technology, you are certainly familiar with “first-mover advantage.” Well, professionally and personally, this is what 2023 is presenting to CIOs and technology leaders worldwide! So many trends that we have watched for years are coalescing – the digitization of business processes, the criticality of digital leadership within our organizations, and the governance imperative to brief the C-suite and the board of directors regarding an organization’s state of digital readiness — as we confront an unsettled economy that is driving yet another major iteration of new information technology imperatives.

Join us as we explore both the leadership and technology landscapes, and provide useful operational guidance for seizing the opportunities for maturing our cloud capabilities, data management, and C-suite participation; and the rising challenges before us including the talent gaps, the never-ending security gaps, and the disconnected technology initiatives across many of our organizations.  

Officina at the Wharf

Officina [oh · fee · she · nah], or “workshop,” is an Italian-inspired culinary collective from Chef Nicholas Stefanelli of Michelin-star Masseria, Philotimo, and the newly opened Le Clou. Officina seeks to bring the very best of Italian gastronomy to Washington, D.C. and is an ode to Stefanelli’s travels, training, and distinctly Italian-American upbringing.
