Discussion topicCIO - The Enterprise Game Changer

Speakers:

Eric R. Gorney, Chief Operating Officer, SAP Hong Kong & Macau
Charles de Jager, SAP Customer Solutions Management, SAP Greater China

Synopsis:

“The C-suite is becoming overcrowded with new C-level titles being introduced regularly- Chief Innovation Officer, Chief Privacy Officer, Chief Cloud Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, Chief Social Media Officer, Chief Security Officer, and Chief Risk Officer …, etc. These new roles are often unclear in terms of their objectives, and how they differ from the role of the traditional CIO. As a result, the role of the CIO is being marginalized when the role should, in fact, be elevated.” (Quoted from Wired.com https://www.wired.com/insights/2014/04/new-role-cio-innovator-ever-evolving-business-world/)

In this session, we will discuss the challenges and the top hurdles of CIOs in face of digital transformation. We will explore how IT and business leaders are assessing what works for them, and look out to the challenges and opportunities ahead. The latest technologies are re-shaping the role of CIOs and turning over the business with strategic best practices. CIOs can lead the organization to stay ahead in the digital enterprise.
