Lead, Reimagine, Reinvent – Driving a Culture of Genius for Success

Because the CIO is at the center of the digital transformation journey s/he is uniquely positioned to deliver fearless leadership, fuse emerging technologies with process redesign and people skills, partner with the C-suite and board of directors, and successfully navigate the business into the future.

The courageous leadership traits needed to foster a culture of innovation and transformation on the path to genius will be the focal point of the 2017 Boston CIO Executive Leadership Summit.

    Today, businesses everywhere use digital documents and systems such as CRM, HCM, and CMS. Yet, 80% of all business processes still involve paper. This causes information workers, on average, to spend one-third of every workday on manual administrative tasks – searching for documents, uploading attachments, re-entering data into forms, and other low-value activities. By connecting Adobe Document Cloud to current, processes, and systems, you can transform what you have into a completely digital experience. Then information can flow quickly, securely, and automatically from one step to the next, helping workforce productivity soar 30% or more. And you can gain more control over security, compliance, and availability.
