About the Event

As senior technology leaders, we are expected to lead digital transformation efforts and deliver superior customer experiences, and many of us are finding that data is critical to success and business growth. To put it simply, data has never been more valuable and integral to the success of our organizations.

SIMCAC welcomes all current and eligible prospective members to join us for an evening of networking, cocktails, dinner, and lively discussion. A panel of industry leaders that are leveraging data to drive successful transformation initiatives will share knowledge and best practices around:

  • Developing successful data strategies for your business
  • Obtaining financial and other required organizational commitments
  • Developing your team to ensure the right technical and business skills
  • Considering data monetization opportunities
  • Ensuring data security

Event underwritten by Service Now. We hope to see you there!
