CIO Talks. Stories about Data, Technology, Diversity, Equality and Inclusion

8th December 2021


There are people who SPEAK about digital transformation and people who DO digital transformation. Transforming the business through technology means to bring cultural change to the organizations and tangible benefits while changing the processes and the operations.

Digital transformation is not only about replacing or implementing a new IT system. The entire business is transforming, generating new business models, new organization structures and new business processes and sometimes inclusion challenges. Diversity Equality and Inclusion became an important objective for the organizations and society

CIOs and the IT departments have a fundamental role in transforming the businesses. Latest trends and technologies and the supplier ecosystems are the facilitators for the new digital world.

CIO Council proposes a webinar to explore two main subjects: how to change the organization culture through technology aligning with the DEI principles and how to extract the value from the data and to bring order to the operational chaos with Content Management platforms.  We are bringing you real stories and real people that are “doers” not “talkers”.
