econique Inc. sets the stage for CIOs to discuss strategies, management, and transformations
New York, NY, June 18, 2012 – The 2012 CIO Dialog Series will gather together industry’s top-tier IT experts in Philadelphia, PA on 16 and 17 July.
With business transformation at today's pace, the role of the CIO to ensure stability across all processes within the company has never been so important. Over the next five to ten years, technology will be changing companies and industries fundamentally and the consequences of ubiquitous consumer computing will be dramatic for society as a whole. econique constantly scans the market for the latest developments and in response is pleased to announce that the CIO Dialog Series of events will launch across North America in 2012 starting with this year’s first CIO Dialog in Philadelphia, PA on 16th and 17th July.
This event will set the stage for CIOs from public, private, and government entities to gain valuable insight into the most recent industry developments, and network with industry peers from across the globe. Based on our extensive research, the summit will cover themes of growing importance that are on CIOs’ ‘watch’ and ‘to-do’ lists: Driving change and generating competitive advantages, streamlining and transforming the organization with emphasis of finding and developing right talent, implementing the desktop and working place of the future, supporting Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), finding the sourcing sweet spot between in- and outsourcing, and doing all of the above with a maximum level of security and compliance.
econique’s summit format includes one-to-one meetings, same level networking with C-level colleagues, the latest interactive best-practice presentations, and confidential round table discussions that are based on accurately matched interests and competencies. Sven Hardt, Managing Director of econique Inc. explains the success of this concept: “To understand the language and culture of decision makers is a condition precedent to a successful summit format”. Thoroughly researched themes are also key to offering an exclusive platform for a customized, confidential exchange of information and knowledge.
André Mendes, CIO of the Broadcasting Board of Governors, will start by outlining scenarios for technology-triggered societal changes of the next twenty years, questioning along the way the future needs of IT departments. When will today's CIO not be needed any more? Matthew Graham-Hyde, Group Chief Information Officer, Kantar, will share his thoughts on how you can manage the revolution and be ‘the doer’. For him, the crucial element is leadership of people, thought and technology.
Together, with 10 diverse best-practice presentations, delegates from leading companies such as Johnson & Johnson, GSK, Citigroup, Pfizer, Hewlett-Packard, Odin Technology, along with security solution practices from Yale University among others will constitute further exciting expert rounds of discussions and networking contacts.
With a global on-and offline CIO Leaders Network, econique will help CIOs and IT leaders find the right discussion partners in the global IT community, while inspiring them with cutting-edge case studies from their fellow IT leaders.
The Senior Vice President of the Bank of America describes his recent experience with econique Inc. at the CIO Dialog in Dallas as “extremely positive and refreshing”. As an experienced summit delegate and speaker, he says: “I have attended many industry wide conferences over the years, both as a presenter and a guest and this event exceeded my expectations. The topics were timely and relevant and the senior level perspectives allowed for informative, candid discussion. The conference provided guests the ability to customize their experience based on interests and gave direct access to speakers and participants. The level of interaction, expertise and frank dialogue was refreshing and highly desirable“
