Smart Talk on Artificial Intelligence

Toronto – November 29, 2017 – Artificial Intelligence is on everybody’s lips these days, especially in the IT space, but like many transformative technologies, it takes time for business to catch up with the promise of great things to come. Right now, AI is still in its infancy. We know it’ll soon grow up and kick some serious business butt, but in the meantime CIOs must figure out ways of introducing it and nurturing it while delivering tangible business benefits.


CIOs Share Ideas on Customer Engagement

Toronto – October 2, 2017 – Retail pioneers like Timothy Eaton and Marshall Field founded their department store empires on the notion that the customer is king. And over a century later, that belief is as valid as ever – perhaps even more so.

Calgary CIOs share strategies for innovation

While the majority of CIOs polled in various studies agree that “innovation” is high on their companies’ priority list, their definition of “innovation” is highly subjective and possibly only observable through its impact and delivered value (you’ll know it when you see it?).

The majority of people interested in innovation have a sense of what it is and are more concerned about how to go about encouraging innovation, developing a sustainable approach to it, and realizing business value.


Making the case: CIOs reveal tactics for pitching the C-suite

Toronto – May 26, 2017 – When it comes to making a compelling business case in the C-suite that supports IT’s vision for the organization, CIOs are often caught between a rock and a hard place. The rock is the C-suite’s sometimes adamantine resistance to technology-driven innovation and change, and the hard place is IT’s position outside the mainstream of the business. To be successful at this important task, CIOs must be on their game, creating the best possible argument for their case, finding allies within the business, and laying the groundwork for success within the C-suite itself.
