Topic: The Business of IT

In an information-rich environment, IT is becoming the primary driver to enable business growth and critical decision-making. With these changing views of the business world, IT leaders should expect a change in their roles – from business support responsibilities to ones that pioneer the search of upcoming technology investments that will drive positive business outcomes. Increasingly, IT departments will play more roles on the demand side of business, as compared to the past where the emphasis was on the supply-side.

This talk will focus on the three key areas:

• Technology-Centred Business Innovation
• Stakeholder Management
• Talent Management
