2019 Seattle CIO Executive Leadership Summit

Seattle, WA – Oct. 9, 2019 – Successful CIOs know that digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and the Internet of Things can be leveraged to improve the customer experience. Crafting a sophisticated and well-designed go-to-market strategy is crucial, now more than ever, in the fourth Industrial Revolution.

The savviest CIOs are well-positioned to determine those use cases where AI and ML can deliver measurable returns on investment while weighing the cost, complexity and risks of transformation against delivering against heightened customer expectations.

Discover winning strategies and critical thinking for CIOs and technology executives to drive successful digital transformation by joining us at the 2019 Seattle CIO Executive Leadership Summit, produced by HMG Strategy, taking place on November 12, 2019 at the W Seattle Hotel in Seattle, Washington.
