Getting enough business value from your IT dollars? Run costs starving your innovation agenda?

CIOs need to drive a culture of innovation for businesses to thrive in the digital revolution. But often, essential run-the-business commitments starve their innovation agenda of funding and priority.

Discuss strategies for Funding Innovation with Ralph Loura, CTO of Rodan + Fields and former CIO, Enterprise Group at HP, industry experts from KPMG, Apptio, and the TBM Council at an exclusive, invitation-only CIO roundtable breakfast in downtown San Francisco. Hear how successful IT executives develop collaborative relationships with business peers, carve out funding to drive meaningful transformation, and become trusted innovation partners for their companies.

Participants will enjoy networking over a gourmet breakfast at the historic Westin St. Francis Union Square. Afterward, we will engage in a lively roundtable discussion, exploring how to fund innovative initiatives such as:

  • Digital business transformation
  • DevOps & Agile adoption
  • Cloud adoption and hybrid IT
  • Services transformation
