Topic Abstract:

Worldwide IT spending is projected to total $3.8 trillion in 2019, an increase of 1.3 percent from 2018's estimated spending of $3.5 trillion, according to the latest forecast by Gartner, Inc. In order to be responsible managers of this spend, the entire IT organization must place heavy emphasis on organizational change management that promotes a shift in mindset. This allows IT to move from order takers and troubleshooters to solution providers. Key enablers ensure managers run IT as a business. This session will not only explore those enablers but provide real-life examples.


What are the common challenges faced by CIO's today as they try to run IT as a business? How culture is the biggest barrier to any IT transformation? How do you change the mindset of how IT is viewed by the business and internally?  How does IT shift from being viewed as a cost center to an innovation center, troubleshooters to solution providers, and moving IT from a back-office function to a front office function?
