Taking the ‘Jazz Hands’ out of your Digital Transformation

Glen McLatchie, Group Chief Information Officer, SKYCITY Entertainment Group

SKYCITY Entertainment Group knew they had to respond to the myriad of technology trends impacting their business but were faced with a decade of under investment across their entire technology stack.

Since joining in 2016, CIO Glen McLatchie set out a plan to tackle this technology debt, while addressing the relentless business demand for digital transformation and innovation.

During this workshop, Glen shared the SKYCITY journey with tips and techniques that helped move the ICT function from cost centre to enabler – agreeing the business operating model and articulating the desired state, through to securing the funding and setting up the delivery capability.
