Earlier this year OmniChannel Media, in collaboration with Hitachi Data Systems, hosted an Executive Dialogue with some of Sydney’s leading CIO’s, COO’s and head of technology.
The two-hour luncheon provided some thought-provoking insight into how CIO’s from different industries are approaching key areas of change for their business. The keynote speaker for the luncheon was Michael Barnes, Research Director at Forrester Research.
The moderator for the discussion was Hitachi Data System’s Asia-Pacific CTO Adrian de Luca. Given the variety of industries represented the discussion was varied and robust, with CIO’s providing an insight into how their businesses are dealing with critical challenges surrounding: digital transformation, ‘disrupting from within’, as well as the role of the CIO in the customer experience.
The discussion highlighted the challenges that all CIO’s face in an era when the speed of IT transformation has hit levels never before seen. It was determined that critical to tackling this challenge was having systems in place that encouraged collaboration and self-reflection.
