2:00 pm - 3:45 pmNew Rules for the New Roles of the CIO: Identifying the Skills that Must be Mastered to Maximize Impact of IT in the Enterprise
Jim Stikeleather, Executive Strategist & Chief Innovation Officer, Dell Services
Moderator: Lane F. Cooper, Contributing Editor, CIO magazine
Between the rapid evolution of technologies that are disrupting the enterprise IT organization, and the new expectations that CEOs have for how investments in technology should contribute to accomplishing critical objectives, the rules of the road for the CIO have changed dramatically.  This means that the attributes that defined a successful CIO as little as five years ago are now out of date. It is one reason why analysts estimate that 70 percent of CIOs will be replaced within the next three years.  It also explains why only 46 percent of CEOs believe their CIO understands the business strategy enough to drive true value.

In this interactive roundtable, moderated by Lane Cooper, CIO magazine Contributing Editor, you and your peers will gain insight into what it will take to meet Board Room expectations, and assess the skills and resources that will have to be harnessed to deliver shareholder value.

Accelerating Business Growth through Smart Data Management
Christopher Carter, Big Data Manager , T-Systems North America
Moderator: Charles Pelton, Contributing Editor, CIO magazine
Information is the new frontier for competitive differentiation. The only problem is that there is so much of it, it’s widely distributed, and the volume and sources of data grow exponentially every year. How can you capitalize on your own – and your customers’ – information, while building and deploying new and innovative business strategies and models?

Big data analytics is going through a revolution. In the past, analytics was often used to confirm decisions. Now there’s a more forward-looking approach to information analysis that generates new insights and better planning. What’s the experience of your fellow CIOs when it comes to transparency, standardization, and interoperability between different information repositories? How are the sources and security of all that data changing – and where are the opportunities to leverage that information? How can you securely manage and find opportunities through the three “V’s” that describe data and information today: volume, velocity, and variety?

8:45 am - 9:45 amOpening Keynote: The Mobile Mind Shift: Engineering Your Business to Win in the Mobile Moment
Ted Schadler, Vice President and Principal Analyst, Forrester Research
Smartphones are becoming an extension of our brains. When we don't immediately find what we want, we turn to our phone or tablet and look for an app or a service to help. This change in behavior creates a series of mobile moments during which companies can create loyalty or get shut out by a more nimble mobile competitor. But finding the right ‘mobile moment’ for your organization won't be easy. By 2017, as much as $189 billion a year will be spent by companies redesigning business processes for the mobile mind shift. In this session, Forrester’s Ted Schadler will talk about consumer expectations, new business model opportunities and challenges as he explains the four-step IDEA process (Identify, Design, Engineer, Analyze) needed to engineer your business to win.

Jedidiah Yueh, President & CEO, Delphix

Molina Healthcare, a $7 billion California-based healthcare provider, faced new healthcare regulations, a migration to online exchanges and significant application testing -- all while managing petabytes of sensitive patient information accumulated over the years.

As a result, Molina now manages petabytes of data virtually, in a fraction of the cost and time. In this IT practitioner session, Rick will join Jedidiah Yueh of Delphix to talk about Molina's data challenges, approach and results.
