Leadership in Technology: How to Bolster the Impact of Today’s CIO

In a time of increasing business change, there’s a movement towards the decentralization of IT resources, along with an increase in externally delivered cloud-based technologies. Increasingly, the CIO must be viewed less as the deliverer of technology resources and more as the driver of innovation and transformation within each enterprise – and industry. Join Mr. Stikeleather for a discussion on the topic of how to increase the relevance of the CIO in today’s changing business environment.

Creating Systemic Innovation: Assessing Your Organization’s Innovation DNA

The term “innovation,” when correctly understood, refers to a new way of doing something. It may
be an incremental and emergent change, or it could be a radical and revolutionary shift in thinking,
products, processes or organizations. This presentation will explore the difference between
“invention” (an idea made manifest) and “innovation” (ideas applied successfully in practice) with
key insights for accelerating forward momentum and balancing organizational risk taking.

Unlocking Business Innovation in the Social Enterprise

As new business models emerge from the confluence of rapid technology change, expanding customer power and vertical market realignment, your company’s future depends on striking the right balance between innovation and efficiency. The main source of new products, services and process improvements will be coming directly from customers and online communities. Join Jim Stikeleather for this expert session on using IT to enable and accelerate business innovation in this new ecosystem.

The Risks and Rewards of an Enterprise Cloud Strategy

This session will be on developing the best path for your organization’s cloud strategy. What should successful IT organizations be doing to enable the business by deploying the right mix of architectures? How does the accelerating pace of change in managing applications, data and existing infrastructure have an impact on your journey to a cloud strategy? With security, governance, business process alignment and application management as considerations, we’ll weigh the risks of cloud computing.

Getting Beyond Tomorrow

A fundamental shift is happening in the delivery and consumption of technology which is transforming IT and businesses. What social, economic, legal, regulatory, market, business and technology trends are driving this shift, and what can CIOs do to address it? This presentation will explore different models of innovation – Sustaining Innovation, Disruptive Innovation and Planned Innovation – as well as discuss myths about innovation that interfere with the potential contribution of IT.
