CIO Connect Annual Conference 2012: Embracing the Unexpected

At the 10th annual ConferenceEmbracing the Unexpected, 2nd and 3rd October,  CIOs and senior IT leaders came together in London to debate and discuss the business impact of constant, and sometimes unexpected, change.

No senior executive, least of all the CIO, can afford to shy away from change in the collaborative age. The CIO must lead change in a flexible and demanding business context. The fast pace of technological development, mixed with increasing pressure from the business to use information to help the business grow, means CIOs must create a careful balance as they embrace the unexpected.

During the two day annual CIO Connect Conference we heard from recognised business leaders how CIOs and their IT organisations can make the most of technology for the benefit of their organisations.
