8:45 am - 9:15 amSocially Awkward: Creating a New Relationship between IT and Marketing
Frank Cutitta, CEO, Center for Global Branding

With the rapid-fire rise of social media and next-generation marketing technologies, the timing seems ideal for IT and marketing to join forces and transform the customer experience. Yet many left-brained IT groups are instead growing further apart from their right-brained colleagues in marketing, who eagerly take advantage of cloud computing services to sidestep IT. Where is the middle ground for both organizations to innovate and evolve together? CEO Frank Cutitta of the Center for Global Branding set out to find that answer with a unique series of CIO-CMO interviews at 50 global enterprises, in a research project done in association with CSC Leading Edge Forum. In this lively, entertaining session, Frank will share the results of his CIO/CMO Harmony Index research and offer pointed, practical suggestions for how IT and marketing organizations can create a better relationship and improve their joint innovation efforts.

10:30 am - 11:00 amMeeting Demand and Minimizing Risk: Social Media and IT Consumerization in the Enterprise
Steven J. Bandrowczak, General Manager, Avaya Global Alliances, Avaya
Until recently, enterprise IT leaders have been cautiously adopting social media tools and consumer technologies, but in a piecemeal approach that has created disparate, siloed processes and inefficiencies. There are also concerns about wide-scale corporate adoption due to worries about security risks, architecture provisioning, “BYOD” (Bring Your Own Device) requirements and unrealistic user expectations. Yet the potential business benefits of IT consumerization can improve the customer experience, boost user productivity and collaboration, and drive revenue growth. In this session, you’ll hear from Avaya’s General Manager Steve Bandrowczak about how IT and telecom leaders can conquer the challenges of social and consumer technology adoption in the enterprise.
11:00 am - 12:30 pmTaking Business Relationships to the Next Level
Tom Carbonaro, VP of Information Solutions, North America Pharma, Sanofi-Aventis
Warren Kudman, CIO, Sealed Air Corporation
Leonard Law, SVP & CIO, W. P. Carey & Co.
Moderator: Carrie Mathews, Manager of CIO Programs, CIO Executive Council
In order for IT to become a business influencer and game changer, the technology organization must transcend its “service provider” relationship with stakeholders and become a trusted business peer and partner. The task of guiding that relationship journey falls to the CIO and the senior IT leadership team. In this combination panel discussion and hands-on workshop session run by our CIO Executive Council, you'll take a short quiz to assess your own IT group's relationship with business leaders. Then with your own assessment in hand, you'll hear directly from a panel of New York area IT leaders about their own challenges, roadblocks and successes. Finally, the audience will take over the discussion in small groups to explore the panel’s ideas and identify further best practices.

1:45 pm - 2:30 pmHow Supervalu Uses Social Media to Speed Decision-Making
Wayne Shurts, EVP & CIO, Supervalu, Inc.
Finding ways to cut costs while drawing in more customers is a huge priority for $37.5 billion Supervalu, the financially struggling No. 3 grocery retailer behind Kroger's and Safeway. CIOs who know how to interpret customer behavior can help generate ideas for new products and find fixes for systems that aren't working well for shoppers. "It's real easy, especially in IT, to get lost in what you're doing and lose sight of the mission," says Supervalu CIO Wayne Shurts. "We have to bring customers in." In this presentation, Wayne will detail his efforts to draw IT more closely into customer-facing business operations. He'll also talk about the increasingly vital role of social media tools like Yammer (now with more than 10,000 internal users) and how it speeds up decision-making across the company.
2:30 pm - 3:00 pmBuilding the Mobile Enterprise in 2012
Robin Daniels, Head of Enterprise Marketing, Box
Mobility is a disruptive force creating major demand for cloud offerings. In the 2012 IDG report on iPads for businesses, 79% of professionals “always” use their iPad on the road andthe proportion of IT and business professionals using mobile devices is at an inflection point and today’s new mobile offerings ensure that end users and CIOs alike have the best, broadest and most secure access to their content from any device. Box’s Enterprise Marketing Manager, Robin Daniels, will discuss how the rise of mobility and the spread of social capabilities across business applications is creating massive upheaval in the enterprise software market—more than we’ve seen in the past five years. Attendees will learn how these short and long-term changes are transforming IT departments and revolutionizing today's workforce.
3:10 pm - 3:40 pmClearing the Fog on Cloud Technologies for the Enterprise
Andrew Schroepfer, Vice President of Strategy, Rackspace Hosting

Cloud technologies are creating an inflection point where many enterprises must at least consider hosting alternatives for even the most mission-critical websites and applications. And while cloud may be available for everyone, it is not the best choice for everything. In this breakout session, Rackspace Hosting will demystify the cloud by sharing how enterprise customers are adopting cloud computing for various types of applications. Learn how a hosted solution can enable your organization’s innovation by cost-effectively overcoming the challenges of scaling, availability and performance. Rackspace will also share information about OpenStack™, a game-changing open-source cloud platform designed to foster the emergence of technology standards and cloud interoperability.

Gregory O. Smith, Head of Portfolio & Solution Design, T-Systems North America

Enterprises have high hopes for the role that cloud services can play in transforming the way IT services are provided and consumed. But using the cloud for production workloads – which often involve highly complex, highly optimized legacy environments –requires some problem solving. In this session, Sanjay Jagad, Sr. Product Manager at NetApp and Dr. Gregory Smith, Head of Portfolio and Solution Design at T-Systems, will discuss these challenges and provide a multi-pronged, practical approach to take advantage of the cloud that is in synch with the evolving maturity of the underlying technologies and standards– no matter where your organization is starting from.

Angelo Valletta, SVP & CIO, Head of Bank Operations, Sun National Bank
Moderator: Maryfran Johnson, Editor in Chief, CIO magazine & Events
An increasingly mobile workforce, a surging influx of consumer devices at work and the rapid rise of collaboration and social media tools are having a huge impact on business value delivery in today's enterprise. While these trends present  tremendous challenges for CIOs in data security, customer privacy and legacy integration, there is an undeniably strong tide of user demand to use the devices and tools of their choosing. How do you manage risk while giving up traditional IT controls? How do you maintain a good partnership with the business when you really have to say "No?" In this engaging panel discussion with prominent IT leaders and experts, you’ll hear how companies are turning these tensions into opportunities to enable business in a hyper-connected online world.
4:30 pm - 5:00 pmUnleashing the Human Factors of IT Productivity
Frank Wander, Founder, IT Excellence Institute
What are the human elements that really drive productivity and success? What happens when teams of knowledge workers collaborate to co-create IT solutions for business partners? But most importantly, how can successful IT divisions recruit, retain and develop top talent while ensuring that the workplace social environment allows people to excel at what they do best? In this thought-provoking closing keynote, longtime IT leader Frank Wander, former CIO of Guardian Life and now founder of the IT Excellence Institute, will examine how successful IT divisions can do all of the above. In a radical departure from common practice, Frank will demonstrate why IT professionals are not interchangeable parts -- and why creating "professional intimacy) (the title of his upcoming book) is just as important for corporations as achieving "customer intimacy."
