CIODAY 2017 – The big how
20 + 21 november 2017
The new alliance of powers in economics, technology and society (ETS) is turning the world upside down. Organisations, sectors and even entire nations are influenced from the bottom up due to the democratisation of media and technology. The pyramids of old are making way for more organic forms of interaction. Economic models do not work any longer, as they are based on a (simplified) reality that no longer exists. What the effects of the disruptive forces will be is anybody’s guess.
The question is no longer why organisations have to change or transform, for this is obvious in the field of forces dominated by ‘digital, data and disruption’. What has to happen is also clear. All that matters now is how. What needs to be achieved is flexibility, scalability, self-organisation, and operating in ecosystems. Leaders have to stretch their roles, as technology is everywhere. CIOs are moving towards business and management, in which technology is a means to enhance efficiency no longer but a way to tap into new products, services and target groups.
