    The Human CIO in the Digital Age

    May 14, 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
    Without question, the fast-and-furious change we are all experiencing in this digital age is an order of mega-ton magnitude. But whether you find this frenetic, fast-moving environment to be thrilling or overwhelming (or both!), you can’t ignore it: The stakes are far too high, and the revenue potential too great. Incremental innovation and slow adoption are no longer sufficient. You need to leapfrog or you’ll get left behind. And leapfrogging means acknowledging that the twin forces of human resources and technology are both fundamental to sustainable success. No matter how you look at a business problem, tech and talent are part of the solution. Nobody in tech is not-talking about talent, and nobody in talent is not-talking about tech. Talent wars for data scientists, developers, and other IT roles are real and those companies who don't have boundless pools of money need to compete in other ways to stay in the game. We're all going back to "tech school" but if we get lost in cutting edge technology alone, we'll find we've sliced ourselves wide open. The ultimate goal for any company and leader shouldn't be "having the latest tech," it needs to be: staying relevant!
