Modernising the Core: How CIOs Can Balance Innovation and Legacy to Achieve True Transformation
3rd December 2019 | 6:15 pm
Date: Tuesday 3rd December from 6.15pm
WHAT’S ON THE AGENDA
Digital Transformation has been at the forefront of IT Leaders minds for years now, and while each organisation has a different view of what it means to them, few have truly achieved it.
CIOs are charged with balancing the excitement of bringing in new technologies and driving innovation with modernisation of the core, tackling legacy systems and ensuring minimal disruption.
Chief Wine Officer and Exponential-e are thrilled to invite you to an evening of the finest dining and wine tasting at Rosewood Hotel, London. Join your fellow IT Leaders as we explore how organisations can modernise their core to accelerate digital transformation initiatives, whilst also freeing up people and budget to support more valuable projects.
- 81% of business leaders agree that if they fail to embrace IT transformation their firm will no longer be competitive in the market;
- 31% of CEOs cite IT change as a top priority for their business;
- and 73% of CIOs say it’s a challenge to find the right balance between business innovation and operational excellence.
Don’t miss this exclusive Chief Wine Officer event, where you won’t just learn how to drive innovation that drives its own benefits and is quick in relation to time to value. Our guests also get the chance to connect with their peers, sharing their experiences over a glass of the finest wines sourced by a genuine Master of Wine. You’ll also have the chance to take part in a light-hearted wine competition. Put your taste buds to the test to see if you can claim the ultimate accolade – the Chief Wine Officer!
This event is exclusively limited to 15 IT Leaders and C-Level driving digital transformation within UK organisations.
