Registration and Reception
Panel: The New IT Change Agents
In this new digital age of IT consumers, changes are occurring now. Business users are meeting with software vendors, systems are synonymous with smartphones, small companies are taking on big data, and end users keep legacy systems under their desks. As workers become more savvy about technology, many IT organizations find themselves struggling to stay relevant.
In this session, noted author and SAS executive Jill Dyché facilitates a dialogue among experts about how IT can meet the business where it is, and explores the new responsibilities of business leaders to engage – indeed, support – IT in their companies. Discussion topics will include the changing role of the IT organization, how analytics helps drive modernization, and how CIOs should be looking ahead.
