Opening Keynote The CIO Challenge: 2021s New Technology Leader

By now, it's no secret that digital transformation agendas require that CIOs become true working partners to the business. We've decided to go further. Upon acknowledging that virtually everything we do has some critical dependency on technology, we want to skate to where the puck is going.

This will be a key strategic asset and a competitive advantage for us.
