Seminar:  "The Creative CIO:  How the CIO Role Is Changing"
This program will address how corporate IT departments, led by creative CIOs, are evolving from being a cost center to a profit center, from keeping the lights on to having a strategic vision and a seat at the business executive table, and to driving revenue through innovative technology, data analytics, etc.  
Our panelists:
A Principle at KPMG, Gianna D'Angelo will provide insight and samples of the changing CIO role, gleaned from the Harvey Nash/KPMG worldwide 2016 CIO survey, "The Creative CIO," which covers everything from changing roles and priorities, to salaries, to outsourcing, to cyber security, to digital leadership, and more.
SIM member, Candida Seasock, will provide insight on how the CIO role is changing based on her experience working with many senior IT leaders on a daily basis.
Senior Global IT Executive, Jim Worth, will illustrate how the CIO role is changing from his perspective, having served in multiple IT leadership roles.
Senior Human Resources Vice President, Chris Giangresso, will discuss the changing CIO role from a human resources perspective.
Coordinator:  Charlie Cachili, EVP Operations, Implify Inc.
