At the Forbes CIO Summit at the Ritz Carlton at Half Moon Bay, the theme of the conference this year is The Digital CIO Takes Charge, as the CIO is now positioned to drive product, revenue and customer experience. At our conference you will see these trends personified.
I have been enormously encouraged by the number of CIOs who have taken digital responsibilities in part or completely for the enterprises they are a part of. As they do, they tend to get more involved in product development, as well. In the process, these grade A CIOs are getting more involved in driving revenue growth for their companies in addition to the traditional purview of CIOs of cost cutting.
We will hear from a number of leading lights who are shaping the technology landscape. Former Cisco CEO, John Chambers will join me on stage to talk about his career in addition to his current work as a venture capitalist.
