- General Motors CIO Randy Mott will share valuable lessons learned from GM's unprecedented IT transformation plan, which included bringing most of the billions of dollars of work done by the automaker's IT outsourcers in-house, as the company moved from 90% outsourcing to only 10%.

"It's very exciting to be in the middle of this digital revolution. We're seeing new titles, new responsibilities, new business models as well as major shifts in technology spending.
