“This year’s theme of ‘Focus. Connect. Lead’ picks up from last year’s theme of ‘Reimagine IT’.We will provide granular and targeted inputs in the context of today’s increased emphasis on a laser sharp focus on driving business outcomes and enhancing business core competence. Attendees will learn how to drive collaboration within the enterprise across stake-holder communities across all levels, as well as outside the enterprise with external stakeholders, and most importantly, customers, and using these levers to establish a business leadership role for the CIO and embed IT in the enterprise with the credibility of being a key ‘front office’ enabler and business partner. We do this in this year’s event with five IT role based tracks and one track dedicated to the financial services vertical,” said Mr. Iyengar.
