About CIO Peer Forum 2020

Can emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning provide a true business advantage or is it just more marketing? Do your CEO and Board challenge you, asking “What’s holding up progress in digital transformation?”. Is Agile the future, the past, or just a distraction? What about Nation State cyber hackers – should you be worried or is that someone else’s problem?
