EXECUTIVE KEYNOTE: Accelerating Transformation… with Data

Matthew Mandich, Director, Innovation & Strategy, Info-Tech Research Group

Despite a global IT spend of over $4 Trillion, 67% of CEOs & CIOs are misaligned on how IT should be enabling the business*.. With the dramatic increase in digital technology & the business’s appetite to understand and enable their own innovations through technology, CIOs are challenged with the need to rapidly understand business inputs, stakeholder satisfaction, and assess their own teams internal capabilities. Info-Tech has found too often this is done through ad-hoc and informal processes, making improvement hard to measure, and success impossible to define. A new model is needed to enable the CIO to rapidly make decisions, prove success & analyze challenges with DATA.

In this session Info-Tech will present how CIOs can overcome these challenges, and forge a new data driven approach to rapidly accelerate decision making, as well as measure the benefits of IT with DATA. Info-Tech will share insights from Info-Tech’s 3 year Stakeholder Satisfaction Study & how IT can enable transformation at unparalleled rates.

By the Numbers:

  • 66% of CEOs don’t understand how to use IT to transform the business.
  • 84% of IT Organizations score below 80% on IT satisfaction
  • 43% of CIOs overestimate the size of their next budget.
  • 78% of CEOs/CIOs are aligned on what IT issues impede innovation BUT are Highly Misaligned on the Business Barriers that Impede Innovation
  • 72% of business leaders misjudge which services really matter to them

  • Egon Zehnder

    Egon Zehnder was founded in 1964 with a distinctive vision and structure aimed at achieving two basic goals - to place our clients' interests first and to lead our profession in creating value for our clients through the assessment and recruitment of top-level management resources. The most fundamental expression of our client-first vision resides in our structure, which is unique to our profession. Our 390 consultants, operating from 63 wholly owned offices in 37 countries, are organized around a single-profit center partnership. This is designed to eliminate competitive barriers between our offices. It allows us to operate seamlessly when engagements call for us to mobilize across many offices in a country or a region. Large or small, local or global, our clients benefit from our structure by having access to our most relevant resources and relationships wherever they may reside. Underpinning this unique structure is our private ownership. We have chosen to operate our firm independent of any outside interests and are motivated solely by a desire to exceed our clients' expectations.
