Panel Discussion

Tackling Disruption: The CIO’s role in Driving Innovation and Digital Enablement

The CIO Institute and i-Governance are please to invite you to join an important discussion on CIO’s role in driving innovation and digital enablement.  Digital is making new demands on IT while IT must undergo its own transformation.  What role will the CIO play in Digital transformation?  As CIOs get more entranced with digital will a new operating model for the IT function emerge and what might it look like?

Yvon Audette, National Lead for IT Advisory at KPMG in Canada, will provide a review of the findings in the Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey 2018, including a comparison to government results globally and Canadian results across all sectors and an in depth discussion with your CIO peers on how this will impact the Canadian Government CIO’s agenda of the future. 

In this year’s survey of CIO leaders around the globe, we see the CIO role continue to change as organizations themselves are forced to transform.  While CIOs are responsible for driving digital, it appears that making a success of digital is proving complex: almost 8 in 10 (78%) feel that their digital strategy is only moderately effective or worse. How can CIOs lead the charge in using digital technologies to advance their business strategy? 

Lunch will be served.

When: September 25, 2018 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Where: University of Ottawa, Desmarais Building, 55 Laurier Avenue East, 12 Floor, Room 12102, Ottawa ON.
