close Digital Transformation – Six Steps to Success

CIO Leadership & InnovationHitachi - SVP, Practice Lead

Digital transformation – driving operational improvements in your physical value stream using connected data from your digital value stream – is delivering unprecedented value across industries to those with a clear road map. In fact, a recent Harvard Business School report shows that companies that embrace digital transformation attain significantly better gross margins, earnings and net income than those that don’t. What’s more, those digital leaders are not spending much more on IT than laggards because the big investments have already been made. The challenge is knowing how to connect the data from the digital value stream to drive continuous improvement with real-time metrics and predictive analytics. No matter where you are on the journey of digital transformation – these six steps can help you connect your systems to drive new levels of productivity, profitability and value across your business.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn how to connect your physical and digital value streams to create near real-time operating systems.
  • Identify areas of variation across the physical value stream that can be supported by better data and real-time analytics.
  • Gain knowledge through strategic partnerships with digital leaders to accelerate your journey to unlocking more organizational value.

If you are compromised with one click then you are seriously in trouble.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to change phishing awareness to be useful
  • What the current threat landscape looks like and why you are in trouble

close Finding, Retaining and Growing IT Talent

CIO Leadership & InnovationOptima Healthcare Solutions - CIO

The technology sector is outperforming the rest of the U.S. economy, with unemployment rates at roughly 2.5%, according new data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics—compared to 4.1% national average. Today’s technology professionals are benefiting. With greater opportunity, they’re actively seeking out the best jobs to match their skills. As an employer, it’s never been harder to find and retain the best talent. Are your best IT resources on the verge of leaving? If they do leave unexpectedly, how will you deliver on critical IT projects? And once you find quality staff, how do you motivate them to achieve their fullest potential, so you can grow a successful team?

Key Takeaways:

  • Formalize an internal referral program – Employee referrals continue to be employers’ top source of hires, delivering more than 30 percent of all hires overall in 2016 and 45 percent of internal hires – Source: Society for Human Resources Manager (SHRM)
  • Think local, hire global – Does it matter where your IT team is? Not all IT orgs are hiring overseas. Rural sourced options continue to exist with talent in more affordable markets like Alabama, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Michigan.
  • Growing IT Talent – The reduces overall attrition. This is important when digital transformation projects take 18-36 months. Losing top talent during one of these projects can delay the project and increase costs.
  • Dedicated Mentoring – Set dedicated office hours for your team. Make sure those time slots are dedicated each week.

Attendee Testimonials

"It’s a great event with a fresh approach on how to make these conferences more productive. I enjoyed comparing notes with the IT and Business leaders of companies who are going through rapid growth and having similar challenges. The vendor meeting format, makes the best use of time for both the attendees and vendors, to better understand their offerings in a personalized and focused environment."

"I enjoy attending these events as I am able to gather information on emerging technologies and discuss current trends, all in a short time frame. I can quickly arrive at conclusions on what will best serve my needs as an IT leader. I would recommend the event to anyone who shares leadership roles in IT as an avenue for education and real-world solutions. I find that it connects me with partners in the industry on a national global level."

"As CIOs we understand the need to network and learn from our peers and experts in the market place. The good news is that there are a plethora of opportunities for us to attend CIO centric events, but sadly, therein lies the difficulty. We have limited time and need to select the events that help us provide the best technological guidance to the enterprises we serve. Having served on many panels and chaired many sessions across many of these events, I have narrowed down the events I attend to a handful. CIO VISIONS is one of them. "
