The CIOpanel has been a staple ingredient of CIOsynergy since its inception 4 yrs ago. Here we pick 5 CIOs who have demonstrated operational excellence within the organization they serve. We look to these CIOs for guidance on what challenges they are facing, what technologies have they adopted over the past year that have elevated and morphed the operating platform of their businesses, and what are their lessons learned.
Are they innovating, divesting, or securing? We will find out on February 21st with the help of the CIOpanel. Attendees will enjoy an evening among peer CIOs and IT leaders in Downtown Atlanta over a epicurean feast and cocktails.
