How do you embrace technology to drive improvements in your IT function?

Creating your roadmap to IT transformation

March 5, 2019 3:00 pm GMT

Transformation is everywhere. New ways of doing business, emerging tools and technologies, shifting customer expectations – the pace of change has never been this fast, and will most likely never be this slow again.

And no-one in the organisation is better placed to drive this transformation than the CIO. The decisions taken by the IT department affect every future customer interaction, every business connection with a vendor or partner, the day-to-day lives of every employee.

Which means the role of the IT professional has never been more demanding. Transformation requires careful planning and resources. It can be costly, especially without proper consideration of how to implement change effectively. And gaining the required visibility into processes, systems and ways of working in order to make informed decisions is increasingly difficult in complex, legacy-invested organisations.

So how do you approach this challenge? How do you gain the right level of insight to drive productivity and reduce costs? How do you leverage automation and emerging analytics to increase efficiencies and improve decision-making? And how does that help create an IT function that enables wider business transformation?

New challenges cannot be addressed with old approaches. Join Meet the Boss, in partnership with Celonis, to explore how to better support and create value for the business – everything from becoming a trusted partner for change, to increasing efficiency through automation, to providing more data-driven insights.
