EXECUTIVE BREAKFAST

CIO Breakfast Briefing - Will there be an IT Organization of the Future?

In partnership with Savannah GroupIn Partnership with Savannah Group.

Leading Edge Forum (LEF) predicts we are entering the era of The Matrix, changing not just how businesses and society innovate, operate and compete, but the way we think about ourselves in the 21st century. The Matrix is industrializing and creating new digital firms and accelerating the digitization of everyone and everything.

This pervasive, aware, embedded, intelligent and autonomous technology landscape that is emerging means IT organizations in the future will look nothing like those of today. Everyone in business, whatever their role, will be a skilled consumer of technology. Technology as a tool will become simpler, and heavily augmented with machine intelligence. What was the IT function will be a technology capability embedded in the business, sitting directly with business groups and helping them achieve their goals.

We predict the end of the IT organization as we know it, but we will see its renaissance in the Matrix era. At this event, we will discuss:

  • What will the technology capability of the future organization look like (its renaissance) and what is driving its evolution?
  • What routes can an organization’s technology groups take to rebuild and reorganize to compete with the digerati?
