Roundtable: Smart Strategies for Leveraging AI

On November 23, 2017 in Toronto, The IT Media Group will host a CIO Master Series roundtable, “Smart Strategies for Leveraging AI”.

Roundtable: A Framework for Innovation (Toronto)

CIOs routinely put innovation high on their list of priorities for both the company and the IT organization, but there is little consensus around a definition of innovation. It means different things to different people – CIOs especially, considering the highly diverse nature or their businesses and organizational structures.

In an effort to bring clarity to this sometimes murky area, The IT Media Group brought together 20 IT executives from the Greater Toronto Area for its Master Series CIO Roundtable “A Framework for Innovation”, which took place in Toronto on April 6, 2017. Sponsor for the session was Salesforce, with Chris Makkreel, Head of Solution Engineering, adding a variety of insights to the discussion. The moderator was John Pickett, VP, Executive Programs, for the IT Media Group.
