Welcome

As part of the executive program offering at Cisco Live, the Executive Symposium is intended for CIOs who are open-minded, strategic catalysts in their organizations. This curated community of technology leaders and relevant, forward-thinking programming are designed to help attendees advance their career, knowledge, and connections while galvanizing their value as the era of digital unfolds.

Content themes for this year’s Symposium:

  • Leading the digital experience for business growth: Best-in-class business outcomes, digital transformation, and analytics and software were explored. Participants envisioned positioning themselves as the chief digital solutions officer bridging customer experience and the bottomline.
  • Creating a dynamic organization built for agility and speed: Discussions included bimodal IT, talent, and the economics of IT. Attendees updated their knowledge to gain flexibility from their assets. 
  • Becoming indispensable in the digital business world: Attendees gained an understanding for  the leadership role now required for the CIO as it relates to managing risk, security, and innovation and capitalizing on trends.
