Technology is disrupting the way customers buy and receive products and services in nearly every industry – from taxis to sandwiches. CIOs need to be at the forefront of this digital revolution, without sacrificing run-the-business practices. Join Anil Cheriyan, EVP & CIO, SunTrust Banks and Ed Smith, CIO, Cox Automotive Group for a TBM Council CIO roundtable discussion on Driving Digital Innovation over breakfast at The Ritz-Carlton in Atlanta, March 14th. Discuss strategies for:

  • Developing the right relationships with business peers to be a trusted innovation partner
  • Empowering IT managers with facts and authority to engage the business in conversations about digital transformation
  • Carving out innovation funding to drive meaningful transformation
  • Achieving budget agility to rapidly experiment, course correct and leverage disruption
  • Measuring the cost and business value of improvements to the customer experience

The goal of the TBM Council is to have a spirited discussion on how others are using the disciplines of transparency to improve business value, and to provide a forum for local TBM peers to engage.
