Earlier this year, 12 of Perth’s leading CIOs attended the fifth installment of OmniChannel Media’s Executive Dialogue series entitled ‘The Transformation of the CIO: Enterprise, Expertise and Industry Evolution’. The event was hosted by OmniChannel Media in partnership with Hitachi Data Systems.
The event was attended by some of Perth’s leading technology executives from some of WA’s largest organisations. Discussion around the evolving role of the CIO within the organisations was robust; with the closed luncheon allowing executives to share ideas and insights into the way they conduct operations.
￼Of all the concepts explored, three topics were tabled as being of greatest concern for CIOs as they look to do ‘less with more’, whilst combatting the challenges of new digital channels. These critical topics were assessing the real purpose of data analytics, creating a risk management strategy for the modern age, as well as understanding what IT optimisation really means to the CIO.
