CanadianCIO Census 2016

Top ↑

screen-shot-2016-11-08-at-8-28-56-amThe role of the CIO is evolving. They are increasingly perceived as top level executives that are being asked to weigh-in at senior meetings about non-IT issues. At the same time, however, the business side of operations is gaining sway over the IT budget and successfully dictating IT purchase priorities. Day to day priorities include operational concerns like security, privacy, reliability and managing budgets, but a new priority is emerging; business innovation.

Does this sound like you? Has your job evolved along these lines in the last year? Do you know how effective your spending is versus your competitors? Do you see the same challenges on the horizon as your peers?

The CanadianCIO 2016 census will help you answer those questions and more. Based on detailed survey results from more than 100 senior technology leaders, the new report offers insights on issues ranging from stature and spend to challenges and the opportunities ahead.

CanadianCIO Innovation Summit 2016

September 24 -26, 2016

J.W. Marriott : The Rosseau, Muskoka Resort & Spa

Set at a luxury resort in beautiful Muskoka, this year’s Summit focused on digital transformation and featured interactive sessions exploring the options available to CIOs to shape the future. Whether it was an engaging presentation on blockchain, an animated discussion about the talent deficit or an exploration of the connected world of the new digital customer, the 25 CIOs in attendance participated with gusto. The 2.5 day seminar may not have solved all the problem facing organizations girding for the coming digital transformation storm, but no one left without at least one actionable item and a new cadre of colleagues with whom they can now bounce ideas.

Please explore the stories, videos and photo galleries that document the Cogeco Peer 1 sponsored event. We look forward to building on the relationships created during the Summit to fuel inspired content and events throughout the year.
