Start with WHY - IT Strategy Development for the Midmarket Enterprise


Presented by Mary Patry
The traditional “wait and respond” approach where IT waits for the business to give them direction before they prepare to take action is no longer viable. For Midmarket CIOs to be viable and effective, they must reframe their role to position IT at the heart of your business strategy appropriately. With this session, attendees will learn how they can play a strategic role in connecting the dots between technology trends and business outcomes. At the end of this session, attendees will leave the session with a practical and executable course of action in time for 2019 planning season.

Riding the Blockchain Revolution - How to capitalize on this technology in your organization.


Presented by James Alexander
The last few years have seen Blockchain emerge as a true disruptor to the business landscape, but to many executives, the value and usage of Blockchain technology is still unclear. Yet two-third of firms report that they expect it to be integrated into their systems by the end of 2018. Blockchain is not just about bitcoin and cryptocurrency. Understanding distributed ledger, smart contracts, and all the mechanisms that drive this technology can enable you to see whether it represents an opportunity, or a threat within your business.
