The presentation was based around “Attitude, Language & Approach – Keys to CIO Success”, and delved into:

  • Technology has evolved from the domain of the geeky to the domain of everyone!
  • Have IT Departments really understood and embraced this fundamental shift?
  • Are vendors, marketers, and researchers controlling our destiny or do we use them strategically as inputs into decision processes for our businesses?
  • Why is IT/Business Alignment still on the agenda? Why is our language and attitude critically important to our success?  Why do we still refer to ‘the business’ as ‘the business’ vs IT?
  • Is digital transformation simply the latest buzzword to sell more software and services or does it have meaning within IT departments?
