The Future of Technology Leadership

Working with technology, you are certainly familiar with “first-mover advantage.” 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. Now the emergence of AI as a business imperative is driving yet another major iteration of new technology imperatives.

Join us as we explore both the leadership and technology landscapes, and provide useful operational guidance for seizing the opportunities for integrating machine learning, 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.   

You’ll get the full benefits of TechTalk networking while keeping current on the ever changing technology ecosystem. Meet and speak with our sponsors, the innovators who are leading the way in digital transformation of the enterprise. Get specific information for your applications and arrange follow-up.

Our research partners at IDC are constantly working to bring current, relevant analysis that technology executives need. Join the conversation to ensure that your organization has the competitive advantage that is that enabled by an agile technology strategy.
