Re-inventing the CIO Role will Propel the Discussion at HMG Strategy's Upcoming 2017 Phoenix CIO Executive Leadership Summit

Transforming the business for the next era of the digital age

PHOENIX, Jan. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- We're in the eye of a storm of enormous change. Industries are being disrupted by digital transformation and new business models. How CIOs respond to these gargantuan challenges and the actions they take to grow the business and add value will be the source of the discussion at the 2017 Phoenix CIO Executive Leadership Summit, produced by HMG Strategy and to be held on February 14, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale.

"We're at a crossroads in business where the digital economy is taking us on a new path," said Hunter Muller, HMG Strategy's President & CEO. "CIOs are uniquely positioned to orchestrate the changes that are required by the business, but they must demonstrate courageous leadership to drive the level of innovation and transformation that's needed for companies to thrive."

The Phoenix CIO Executive Leadership Summit will open with a compelling executive keynote interview between Hunter Muller and Stephen Gold, EVP Business and Technology Operations & CIO at CVS Health. The two will discuss how industry and market shifts are forcing CIOs to remodel themselves – but not necessarily in the ways that conventional wisdom would suggest.

Other scintillating topics of discussion at the Phoenix conference will include an executive keynote address delivered by Elaine Zelby, Director of Executive Programs at Capriza, on opportunities for transforming business applications into systems of engagement; the daring vision needed to re-imagine the enterprise in the next era of the digital age; the strategic leadership characteristics required by technology executives to succeed in a world of accelerated change; the top challenges (and opportunities) for enterprise security today and into the future; best practices for deriving insights and value from data; future trends that will impact the enterprise; and the courageous mindset that's required by CIOs to drive innovation.
