Attending CIOs will come away with a thorough understanding of key technology topics, such as transformation, which has received a lot of hype recently, and innovation, which is often mentioned, but never really defined. I look forward to meeting with the high-level enterprise CIOs as well as the top-notch business CXOs who will be in attendance,” said Mark Southam, Event Director, CIO Insurance Summit.
