Business technology leaders – on any level in IT management – can change how they impact and create value for their organizations.

Panelists: Marvin Cruz, Chief Technology Officer, CGI LA Metro | Jamie Adams, CIO, Mspark | Ken Piddington, CIO, MRE Consulting

There are challenges, however, including legacy roadblocks, resistance from IT staff, and concerns by business stakeholders on the impact of adoption. There are also issues of credibility and trust, as IT shifts from the status quo. Panelists in this session will discuss best practice approaches, as well as outline what works and what may not within the IT organization.
