CIO 100 Recap – Everything You Need To Know
Back in the office, the refreshing ocean breeze off the coast of California still filtering in, I want to share a few key learnings I took away from the CIO 100 Symposium last week. If you were fortunate enough to attend the event, this will serve as a great reminder to the speakers, sessions, and insights the week held for us.
Kicking off the event Sunday afternoon at the Terranea in Rancho Palos Verdes was, to say the least, a stunning way to embark on the journey to Innovating in the Digital Economy. Kris Fitzgerald, Executive Director, Office of the CTO, Dell Services, kicked off the roundtable, Converging Disruption: Creating a Framework for Digital Transformation, Big Data, and IoT to a room full of IT leaders eager to take part in the discussion. Kris opened up the fireside panel with introductions to three of Dell Services industry leaders: Bob May, Executive Director, Global Commercial Industries; Tim McMullen, Executive Director, Global Provider & Life Sciences, and me. Together, we covered high-level perspectives on how these trends are impacting the industry. Shortly after, the participants were asked to join in a workshop exercise to uncover what they need to stop, start and do differently to set a framework that ensures the success of a future-proof IT organization. Post-it notes populated and overran the board with topics and discussion points that would unveil cross-industry perspectives and foster a dialog about actions that have been successful in managing the converging disruptors plaguing their businesses. It was interesting to hear candid conversations about what IT leaders would stop, start and do differently. If you would like to read more about this topic, you can find additional compiled insight from multiple executive-level workshops in this infographic.
Sunday evening opened with a very well-attended welcome reception. Thanks to the fantastic support from the CIO 100 and IDG teams, Dell Services was able to showcase some of our most exciting client work. I had a great time mingling with clients and catching up with a lot of familiar faces. All in all, the first day was a very solid start to a great symposium!
