Building the 21st Century Enterprise
Digitalization, IoT, Automation, and Cloud are fundamentally changing how businesses operate and thrive in the 21st Century. These technologies are no longer optional but core components of any Business Transformation exercise. As businesses reinvent themselves or face decline, IT must evolve from its traditional efficiency orientation to a business outcome orientation.
The third meeting of the Straight Talk Nordic Chapter will explore the Nordic perspective on leadership, organization and technology capabilities that go into building the 21st Century Enterprise. This intimate half-day gathering of CIOs and other senior IT executives will feature the exchange of ideas among attendees and is designed to generate shared actionable insights for achieving business success.
