The CIO must understand the business and then apply technology to achieve strategic goals.
In this keynote session, against the backdrop of using analytics to turn data into knowledge, Cleveland Clinic CIO discusses the job’s growing strategic focus. As he’ll explain, to be successful, the role requires transformational thinking, real-word innovation experience, and the ability to connect multiple pieces of strategy, technology and people together for better sustainable outcomes.
