CIO Exchange: Strategies, Tactics, and Best Practices to help you thrive in 2022

2020 was a bear, 2021 has been a beast – 2022 is the year of the tiger. Are you ready?

Join us as Research Adjunct Advisor, Alizabeth Calder, shares market observations and guidance to help you enhance your organization’s resiliency, improve agility, and accelerate innovation as digital-first business strategies become the norm. Then over dinner discuss, debate, and exchange perspectives with your fellow CIOs about 2022 challenges and opportunities. Discussion topics include:

  • How design thinking accelerates innovation 
  • Setting your cloud optimization strategy 
  • What the board needs to know about ransomware

Enjoy a luxurious Three-Course Dinner while you listen to presentations from some of the greatest minds in technology, headed by IDC's Research Adjunct Advisor, Alizabeth Calder. The event will take place at Redbird, a restaurant that produces innovative New American dishes in a snazzy, historic building.

Chef Neal Fraser and Amy Knoll Fraser’s flagship restaurant Redbird features Modern American cuisine that is refined yet approachable and highlights the multi-cultural influences of Fraser’s native city – Los Angeles. As a follow up to Grace and BLD, Fraser’s menu features seasonal plates ranging from snacks or “kickshaws” to entrees meant to be enjoyed by the whole table. An extensive cocktail menu by Tobin Shea features well-balanced, bespoke renditions of the classics and has garnered him awards such as Time Out’s Best Restaurant Bar Program in 2017. Wine Director Matt Fosket’s selections are well rounded with great finds from both established and emerging wine regions throughout the world and the list has received many awards including “Top 100 wine restaurants in the United States” by Wine Enthusiast and the “Best of Award of Excellence” from Wine Spectator.

Located in downtown Los Angeles, Redbird is carved into one of the city’s most historic architectural gems, inside the former rectory building of Vibiana – the cathedral-turned-event-venue also owned and operated by the Frasers. Designer Robert Weimer and Amy Knoll Fraser created a dynamic space that pays homage to the cathedral next door and the existing timeless architecture by inserting simple modern forms to complement rather than overtake the feel of the rooms. The result is a warm and comfortable considered space.

Redbird | Vibiana received the Los Angeles Conservancy’s 2019 Preservation Award Chair’s Award. The Chair’s Award is the LA Conservancy’s highest recognition celebrating the persistence, creativity and ultimate success of the revitalization for adaptive reuse of the cathedral, rectory building and surrounding property. Recipients are selected by a jury of experts in architecture, historic preservation and community development.
