FutureCIO Breakfast Club
Charting the many roads to innovation
Commenting on the impact of COVID-19 on businesses’ digital transformation initiatives, Al Gillen, group vice president, Software Development and Open Source, IDC, concluded that “the changes driven by this unique set of circumstances will likely carry well into the current decade, dynamically evolving the role of IT as we know it today.”
Gartner warns that leadership has approved digital transformation efforts for long-term growth and profitability, 53% remain untested and therefore their digital transformation readiness remains uncertain.
To mitigate against the risks of failure, and missed opportunities, FutureCIO is inviting you to a Breakfast Club session on the topic of charting the many roads to innovation.
Co-organized with Red Hat, the event will reveal the key stages and strategies, including resources and people, needed to succeed.
Among the topics to be covered:
- Should priority be Transformation or Optimization – which is right for what
- The why and how of digital transformation
- Focusing on strategies that are right for your business
- Focus areas for CIOs to maintain digital momentum
Open your perspectives and join us for the event and get guidance on proven ways to achieve digital transformation, as well as insights into emerging technologies and techniques that you can bring back to your organisation for further understanding.

Executive Panel 1: CHARTING THE PATH TO TRANSFORMATION
Even before the pandemic, digital transformation was already in the agenda for many organisations. From what we understand, the imperative to transform got a renewed sense of urgency during the pandemic and in some cases the window to transform narrowed some say from 3-5 years to 6 months.
In this panel discussion, we deep dive into some of the challenges and experiences that CIOs are experiencing when steering their organisation’s transformation journey.
